Nice. If you get a chance to visit the Ring of Kerry (south west) you should take it, likewise Lough Leane and the McGillycuddy Reeks.

And although you MIGHT have 20 days continuous sunshine it DOES rain, quite a lot.  Waterproof "everything" is necessary.

In fact, if you can grow webbed feet before you go...

It's always good to have waterproof hiking shoes as if your feet get wet, you'll be uncomfortable. If you don't get them, I'd take an extra pair with you....gotta take care of your feet!
