  1. Sorry, I was in Austin for the MotoGP and just caught this email. For tour Ideas we used this and information gathered on a prior Bus Tour I took. http://www.bestbikingroads.com/motorcycle-roads/motorbike-rides-in-ireland-/ireland-__2948.html Plan you trip in a counterclockwise route.. (Bus Traffic in Ireland runs clockwise) I have attached some files with maps and our itinerary. If Nightlife is an important portion of your Irish tour, STAY DOWNTOWN! get reservation on a site like Hotels.com. Walking to Pubs, Food and back is important.. Hotels in Ireland a room for two means 1 Double Bed. Separate beds means anything to you Make sure you reserve that option. If available at time of reservations, always go for Hotel Morning breakfast a good breakfast means you can "cheap out" on lunch. It gives you a greater number of options during the day..Also be aware of PARKING. The attached hotels had parking.. On the Thursday Map we started in Waterford - Dublin.. Don't miss that area south of Dublin You can contact me for more info if you need it.. Ireland Travel Maps.pdf Ireland Travel Plans.pdf
  2. A group of four have just completed 5 Days in Ireland on GS1200s. If you have an interest in that take a look at my album. I'll post answers to your questions here if you're interested in trying it.

    Our bikes 3 BMW GS1200, One of which was brand new,and the Honda Deauville. Celtic Rider allowed us to switch bikes during the tour. the required that each of us sign all the rental agreements. So everybody got a chance to ride the Deauville. You will notice the rain gear, It's Ireland.

    You can't have pictures of a good tour without a Pub.. The Temple Bar, Dublin, Ireland.. Three Friends, the end of the Motorcycle tour, with Thanks to Celtic Rider - Motorcycle Rentals. In the morning we will be off to the second part of the adventure, The Isle Of Man TT..

    Depending on the resolution the White spots along the road, They are sheep.

    Notice the lack of Trees. Although the elevation is not very high at some of these gaps, I would guess that they are above the Tree Line.

    One thing to notice on these pictures the Roads with hashed outlines would be similar to 3 track (three wheel Tracks) roads in the USA. Roads with No hashed lines would be similar to twin track (two wheel tracks) Roads with center line would be 4 track roads.. All of the above would have auto and in some cases Tour Coach traffic comming the other way. Look in the distance on these pictures as you can see the road as it winds it's way Up/Down the gap.
