Leaving tomorrow night! Quick question


I have read almost all your posts here - thank you very much for the advice. I couldn't help myself & unfortunately our2 week  itinerary is BUSY(might be a green blur) & my son was only able to get off for the 1st week. Unfortunately he is returning to US the day we are taking the cruise from Doolin to see the cliffs. Is it too much - arrive @ 8 am in Shannon - pick up the car - drive to the cliffs-walk around & get air & exercise  - then drive back to B&B (10mins from Adare) to check in. Then I guess go into Adare for dinner? Too much? I can't see any other way for him to see the cliffs :(

Depending on how you handle jet lag, it MIGHT be possible, but I wouldn't.

It will take about 1 1/2 hours to drive to Doolin -- and then, another two hours, to get from Doolin, to Adare.

If you land at 8 AM, the earliest you will likely depart the Car Hire lot is about 9 or 9:30.  You'll need to factor in time to visit the Cliffs -- and the timings (and duration) of the Cruise -- as well as a lunch break.

That makes for a VERY 'Busy' Arrival Day!   

Is the plan to DO the Cliff Cruise on his departure day?  That would make the detour to the Cliffs more 'Do-Able' -- although STILL a long day for Arrival.

Thanks Bob
We were just going to walk the cliffs a bit - the cruise is already set for the day he departs - he wouldn't be able to come with us- we are dropping him off at the airport on our way to Doolin. We will play it by ear - if I can sleep well on the plane & weather is good -we'll head to cliffs. Since I will also be getting used to the driving - is there an area that has less traffic & not as intimidating with busses? I remember reading about Hags Head being less traveled.

Thanks again!

I have been recommending Hags Head as an option for a lot of years and Liscannor is an easy option from SNN to get used to the driving. www.thewanderblogger.com/hiking-hags-head-ireland/

There are other options between SNN and Adare with Quin and Bunratty followed by Limerick with King Johns castle the Hunt Museum and other features. Auntie Lena's is a decent option for bar food and night out features.
