๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช Ireland 30 Day Suggested Itinerary

Our family had the opportunity to visit Ireland at the end of the Summer of 2021 for 30 days. We rented a car and drove our way around Ireland while at the same time balancing the everyday responsibilities of work and school. Based on our experience, we have put together a suggested 30-day itinerary for those hoping to do the same!

Please note this is only a โ€œsuggestedโ€ itinerary that is intended to assist you in planning a trip that would work best for you and your traveling campaigns. Your travels may look different based on the needs of the members in your group, ever-changing travel restrictions, and the weather.

This itinerary follows our travels exactly as detailed in the blog portion of this site (A Month in Ireland - Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4). Please reference these pages for additional details. The days listed below align with the days in the blog post.

We know not everyone has 30 days to travel around Ireland. If you are interested in a more condensed version check out our Ireland 14 Day Suggested Itinerary and our Ireland 9 Day Suggested Itinerary. Also, check out our write-up on 10 Things Visitors Should Prepare for When Traveling to Ireland.
