Required focal lengths for Ireland Visit

Heading to Ireland next month. Renting a car and driving around the south. Arriving in Dublin, then Kinsale, Killarney, Galway, then back to Dublin. Expect to hit many of the most notable photo taking spots, e.g., Cliffs of Moher.

Seeking some experiential insight as to what focal lengths (in 35mm terms) are required, as opposed to nice to have. Notice I did not say "what lenses I needed". Once I figure out the recommended focal lengths, I'll choose the lenses.

I know I need something between 28mm and say 50mm. But are wider lenses required, like 20 or 24mm, as well as 150-250mm range?.

Now at this point, typically some one responds with "Well that depends. What kind of photos are you interested in taking?". Let's try and skip that. Presume that it's a combo of landscapes and ocean scapes, town photos, pub photos, people close ups.

Prefer to take primes vice zooms if possible, but may not have all the bases covered.

Thanks in advance.
