Bring a raincoat!. The wettest Irish summer in years . If I were you I would take the 24-105, the 70-200 and a 50mm f1.8. If you have a Canon 500D close up lens
Canon 500D close-up lens
The reason I'd get the 500D is that the Burren is renowned for it's flora and fauna and the close up will give a quick macro ability on the 70-200.
You will be doing the "Ring of Kerry". Dingle is a nice little town on the "Ring" lots of colourful houses. Again the 70-200 will give great compression for these type of house shots. Great pub music sessions in and around Dingle the 24-105 IS will be useful for candid shots in low light inside pubs.
The cliffs of Mohar, great views. When you are in the area check out Doolin, small little village but a great place for lunch. If you are heading from the Burren to The Giants Causeway stop of at Galway. A great city full of characters and a slice of life that is different than Dublin.
I love the Giants Causeway, the rock formations are unique, Remember you are now in Northern Ireland so you will be using sterling rather than euro, so make sure you have a few quid (pounds) in your back pocket. If you have time do the "Bushmills" distillery tour. Go to the Carrig a Rede rope bridge and if y ou can, get a few shots of Dunluce Castle. While you are heading from The Giants Causeway to Dublin why not try and stop of in Belfast, do the open top bus tour or a Black taxi tour and check out the wall murals from the "Troubles".
Dublin, the wprld is your oyster, Guinness Hop store, Grafton street for candid shots. The Hal'penny bridge, Moore street (fruit vendors, mainly old ladies who will only be happy to pose for an American)
Hope this helps
