I would have to agree about the Ireland part of your trip. Ireland isn't really that big, I would say the drive to Kerry would be about 4 hours (from Dublin) and you could do Belfast and on to the Giant's Causeway in 4 hours (again from Dublin).
I would therefore recommend that you do either one or the other.

I love the Giant's Causeway and the whole north coast is stunning, so it if was my choice I would go with that rather than Kerry. If you arrived in Dublin early have an afternoon/evening there sampling the (many) pubs in Temple Bar and the get up early the next day and head North, spend a night up there because it would be too far to come back down south.
You could head back down to Dublin the next day and take in Wicklow - Glendalough, Powerscourt waterfall, places like that. They are only an hour from Dublin. It would be a busy few days but I would highly recommend it from an Irish person's perspective.

Great advice from Ladybug66.
I think you won't go far wrong if you take note of what she said. A night around the pubs, (especially the tourist trail pubs, normally I wouldn't recommend that type of pub as they're a bit contrived but if you only have a flying visit, Definitely go) a day to the North East coast, and a day or part of a day around Glendalough and Wicklow as it's so close to dublin.

Here's a link that might interest you...

Enjoy your trip to Ireland (and other places of course, but I'm a little biased Ha Ha Ha).

Slán anois.

I actually didn't even think about spending a night somewhere other than Dublin. that might be best, we've actually extended the stay in ireland instead of spending 4 days in france.

thank you very much

No joke! I've seen so many amazing pictures I honestly think they'll have to drag me out of there.
Thank you for the link; Grafton sounds pretty cool.
