Ireland - South and West Coasts + Killarney

I'm leaving this Thursday, Oct. 9 for Ireland. I'll be in Killarney for 3 nights attending a friend's wedding. Then we'll take off driving along the southern and western coastlines. We'll leave from Shannon on Friday, Oct. 17. I've read ALL the previous posts on Ireland dining. However, very little was mentioned about Killarney. I'd greatly appreciate any specific suggestions.

We also plan to make a stop-off in Kinsale. I know the town is oft touted as the "gourmet capital" of Ireland. I'd love to get some specific recommendations here as well, if anyone has the scoop.

I also expect we'll hit Dingle, Doolin and Ballyvaughan. Also, any recommendations for our last night somewhere close (within an hour or so) of the Shannon airport would be terrific.

Coming from the Washington, DC area we're pretty open to most fare. Pubs and finer dining are both acceptable. We both enjoy seafood so hopefully someone out there has some wonderful ideas for us. However, we're not as interested in eating Asian or Italian cuisine while in Ireland. Thanks in advance to any and all!
