I highly recommend doing 3 or so days on the west coast of Ireland, particularly in and around Galway (the third largest city after Cork & Dublin!)

Galway City is really cute with lots of local shops, bars, music, and restaurants. Definitely eat at Ard Bia at Nimmos and McDonagh's . McCambridge's Of Galway Ltd scoops Murphys Ice cream which is the best in Ireland. If you like tea, Cupan Tae is an adorable tea shop. The Claddagh region is great as well - there are lots of shops with the traditional ring, and it was developed in the Galway region. The Spanish Arch and The Docks are gorgeous to walk around on a sunny day. 

Salthill is beautiful for a walk around the beach and to see the boats that are sometimes out and and about. 

For day trips, I'd recommend the Aran Islands - there's a ferry that will take you there and they're great for a day trip! It's an Irish-speaking island that specializes in creating wool, and you should definitely rent a bike to see the whole island.

Another great place to see is The Cliffs of Moher in County Clare. You can book a tour that will take you there and Connemara . Beautiful countryside.

Other must-sees on the West coast include Killarney and Dingle. If you can rent a car, it might be easier to get around.

Dublin and Cork are must-see cities as well.

Depends on what you're interested in- outdoors, beer tasting, restaurants, etc. 

For outdoors, there's Cliffs of Moher and Connemara. I recommend renting a car and driving along the country side. Lots of greenery

Dublin is a good starting base and a very walkable city. For a quick meal, try Pieman on Crown Alley (near the downtown area). Irish pies for an affordable price. 

For history, visit the Kilmainham Gaol, a historic Irish prison. Good tour that costs are €5. It's a bit more on the outskirts of Dublin. You can grab a quick lunch at the cafe across the street.

Must do: Rural Pub Tours I would recommend doing this on your first day! Maybe after a nap. I went on an 8 hour tour with a small group to a bunch of pubs around wicklow county. I felt like we were all best friends by the end. It was so much fun!

Walkabout Wicklow Ltd Go on a hike, stop at poppies to eat, see the PS I Love you bridge! Great views. One of my favorite parts of my trip!

Must See: Cliffs of Moher So beautiful. Plenty of tour companies will take you here. I loved it.

Eats: Avoca Café So this is not super fancy but you NEED to eat here! When you first go in it looks like a clothing store but there is food on the basement and upper levels! I got some kind of chicken pie and a cronut! DELICIOUS.
