Two rules for Ireland, Take your time & bring a sense of humour
Renting a car in Belfast and dropping it in Dublin will incur BIG drop off fees (in the $200 range) -- because a car from Northern Ireland has to be re-patriated to the North as it and the Republic (Dublin) are different countries. You could save that by renting the car in Dublin and driving yourself to Belfast -- rather than taking the bus. Making two separate rentals will take more time and likely cost more. A bus from Belfast to the Dublin airport and then driving back to Newgrange will not be as quick.
The rest of your plan will need a bit of work, as you won't want a car while in Dublin.
