Re: Ireland in Nov. 1 - Feb. 14
Great to see you chose a beautiful place to stay, very centrally located for touring the south and west coast of Ireland, a car or m/cycle is a must as i presume you will be flying into Shannon airport which is 40 minutes away from Adare. Weather in early November can be pleasant, generally a little colder and is more favorable than February which can be wet, windy and bitterly cold.
Food is expensive but quiet reasonable places can be found, mid day meals and pub grub
Places to see I would suggest:-
Kerry. The Ring of Kerry, Killarney, Kenmare, Killorglin [Famous Puck Fair], Dingle and Tralee [home of the rose of Tralee]. etc
Cork. The Ring of Beara, Glengarriff and Bantry etc
Clare. The Cliff of Moher, Lisdoonvarna, Lahinch, The Burren etc..
Galway. Galway City and Connemara etc.
Mayo, Sligo and Donegal.
I like near Cork City and I think touring the south west of Ireland would be achievable and be in your time frame.[Cork, Kerry and Clare]
Hopefully this may answer some of your questions/queries and a nice way to spend you 30 year anniversary.
