Right boy’s help needed.

Mrs Bikemad wants to go for a weekend to the Dingle area next month, late birthday pressie, don’t ask.
I haven’t been there in 12 years, need suggestions where to stay (no camping), what roads to ride etc.

Nice B&B or smart hotel, not to far from any village, need to be able to walk to the pub, and back.

All suggestions would be welcome.

Made the TT in 06 and swung over to Ireland. This was pre-GoPro so the video is rough. I need to go back and reshoot.


We ran 16 days with no rain. It was glorious.

...and then some. Our friends in Scotland said that the previous year it had rained every single day from May to September. No one believes us when we talk about that trip. It was a very magical experience.

I took a trip around Ireland in 2008 with the missus on pillion

This was at the top of a mountain pass heading out of Glengarriff I think



One somewhere out west. Possibly in Galway.



Giant's Causeway



Yes, it did rain on us but it was well worth the trip :)

A fascinating old graveyard in the middle of a golf course. The monks buried any bodies found on the local beach as well as parishoners.

All booked out any weekend in September Ah well.
Must be very nice, I thought there was no money around since the Bankers shot the Tiger.
Better to have a recommendation than end up in some hovel
Thank you.

its a bloody rip off, how they can justify jacking the price up to 3x that of any other road race is beyond me, the numbers of spectators were well down this year because of it. still some good racing though.





baz83 off nibikers took those i didnt bring my camera
