11.5 days in Ireland – Itinerary comments/tips needed!

Hello! I’m taking my first ever trip out of the country to Ireland at the end of October/first week of November and I’m new to solo traveling. I know the days will be shorter and rain might be frequent but that doesn’t bother me. I live in Minnesota where the weather can be 4 seasons in 1 day and it gets down to -20F in the winter!

I’m wondering if this rough draft itinerary is too much to accomplish in my allotted time or rather, will it be too rushed? I’d like to see as much as I can while also being able to soak it all in…contradictory goals, I know. Should I spend more time in any of these areas or skip places for somewhere else? Thanks in advance!!
