Hi Halloweenbaby,

Most of your trip sounds very well thought out and organized. The reason that 8-5 & 8-6 get complicated is that you have too much to do on those days. I would suggest seeing the lakes of Killarney and perhaps Muckross House, Gardens and Traditional Farms on the afternoon of 8-4 after you arrive. Since the Dingle Peninsula and Ring of Kerry are day trips from Killarney you should devote a full day to each. If you have a few hours left over after each day trip there is plenty more to do and see in Killarney.

The Blarney stone and woolen mills can then be visited en route to Waterford by stopping in Cork (Blarney is only about seven miles from there) and then continuing on to Waterford.

And when at Bunratty Castle and Folk Park be sure to go across the street to Bunratty Village Mills for some good shopping.

Hope that straightens things out for you!

Happy travels,

Michele
