Is driving in Ireland as terrifying as people say?

I'm having a last minute panic attack about the travel arrangements for my trip
to Ireland and I leave tonight. Should I have stuck to the bus/train?

So I'm going for 12 days, departing tonight, and I decided to rent a car to allow me a bit more freedom. However I started reading horror stories about driving in Ireland, and also more generally about North Americans adapting to driving on the left side of the road. Is there validity to this? Should I be concerned? Should I try and cancel my rental and go the bus/train route again?
Here's my itinerary in case anyone has any specific advice for driving these routes (each point is a stop of at least one full day):
- Dublin to Westport
- Westport to Ennis
- Ennis to Killarney
- Killarney to Kinsale
- Kinsale to Kilkenny
- Kilkenny to Dublin
