I was just hammering out the final details, but this looks like a good starting point for the trip. Here are the plans so far.
On 28th Sept Arrive at Shannon Airport at 7.00am on Continental. Pick up by Buckley’s Tours Coach. Travel to Lahinch (1 hr) and play Lahinch t/t 10.10am. After golf Check out the Cliffs of Moore. Then travel to Ballybunion via the Killimer/Tarbert car ferry (2 hrs). Overnight in Ballybunion at the Cashen Course Guesthouse.
On 29th Sept. Make the short journey to Ballybunion Golf Club and play the Old Course at 9.36am. Note your second round on the Cashen Course is complimentary but is not available until 3.30pm. We will try to play earlier. After golf travel to Killarney (1 hr 10 mins)and check in to the 4 star Malton Hotel in Killarney Town. The hotel is complete with leisure centre and is only minutes from bars, restaurants etc but also has own nice bar and excellent restaurant in Peppers.
On 30th Sept we have a very early start to allow 2 rounds at Waterville as the journey is 1hr 20mins. Your tee time is the best early time available is t/t 8.10am.

We will tee off at around 2pm for our second round. You have to allow for a 5hr round at Tralee even though with a good run it can be done in 4.5hrs.
On our final day, 2nd Oct we are booked to play Doonbeg this day at 3.12pm and the journey from Killarney will be approx 2hrs 15mins min. So we can sleep in and play our last round in the late afternoon. After golf we have to pack and we will head to Park Inn at Shannon Airport so we can wake up and catch out morning flight.
After the great trip we will share a beer look over photos and make fun of each others golf games. Look forward to the trip.
