Welcome to the forum. You are covering a lot of territory and if you must stick to this itinerary there are some things on your list that you may not have time to see.

Do you already have your lodging reservations made? Can you change them? Do you want a very fast-paced trip? In February weather and fewer daylight hours must be considered.

Most people who have visited Ireland frequently will probably agree with me when I sugest you do less driving, cover less mileage, do less one-night stays and re-think your plan. Let us know if it is possible to adjust your itinerary or if that cannot be done.

Whatever the answer, we are here to help.

I'm sorry but you can't fit Ireland as an island into 6 days.

Consider getting the Bus up to Belfast on arrival, its going to mean an early morning check in but gives you the 1st 2 days in Belfast/Northern Ireland. Possibly fly into Belfast if Possible.
Day 3, Thursday, rent a car by dropping to Dublin airport, then drive across to The Cliffs and Burren ending with the night in Limerick
Day 4, Friday the Ring of Kerry ending in Killarney.
Day 5, Saturday choice of heading to Cork or back to Dublin
Day 6, Sunday you want to end in Dublin ready for your flight home on day 7 Monday

You could cut one of the Belfast days to gain space elsewhere but you really need to prioritise what is important to make it more possible.

Wow, thats quite an ambitious road trip. As the other commentators suggested, I dont think your journey plan will work. I mean, it could just about work, but youd be just chasing one aim after the other. Why dont you just consider 1 day in Dublin and then cut across to Galway straight away and slowly travel south (maybe you can make it as far as Cork then)? So leave out Northern Ireland (thats worth an entire trip in itself, the Causeway Coastal Route is fabulous!) and focus on Dublin and the west coast.

Either way, enjoy your trip!
