It would depend on where you are flying into/from and any interests or must see places.

If you are arriving in Dublin it is easy to take a train or bus to Galway avoiding the traffic in Dublin and car rental charges until you get there. You don't have much time with only 7 days you will be doing a lot of travelling every day to explore the west and south of Ireland.
You could do some day trips from Dublin instead, such as Glendalough, New Grange, Coastal Dublin (Dalkey, Killiney, Howth) and hike up the Dublin mountains. There is some magnificent scenery very close to Dublin city to explore also.
Otherwise, You could do the following
Day 1 - Explore Dublin cities culture & nightlife, take a hop on hop off bus tour
Day 2 - Take Train/ bus to Galway City, visit the city centre and Salthill watch the sunset over Galway Bay and the Aran Islands
Day 3 - Drive to the Cliffs of Moher & spend the night at the village of Doolin to enjoy traditional Irish music and Burren landscapes
Day 4 - Drive down to the Killarney and relax after a long drive
Day 5 - Spend the day exploring the scenic ring of Kerry
Day 6 - Return to Dublin and spend the night soaking up the atmosphere is Temple Bar and do some last minute shopping
Day 7 - Fly home
