I am considering taking a week's vacation in Newfoundland in late May and I have questions about it.

I searched through old questions but there didn't seem to be anything that was recent and about Newfoundland in general, so here I am.
My husband and I would be flying into St. John's the last week of May and would plan on renting a car. We would have a full week (Saturday - Saturday) for exploring the island. My questions specifically are:
- How many days do I need to spend in St. John's proper to catch the highlights? I like cultural museums (not so much art, unless they are world-class fantastic), historical/architectural tours, food, wandering around interesting neighborhoods, etc.
- We would like to drive the Irish Loop (maybe spending one night in a smaller village?) and then I think would probably only have time for one major drive elsewhere on the island. Will I regret not making the trek over to Gros Morne National Park? We love day hikes with great views and being in nature, but I'm also really interested in Saint Pierre and Miquelon.
- Other recommendations? Specific hotels & restaurant recs would be appreciated also. Thanks!
