John Bowen's Ireland 2015 Cycle Touring Blog


A cycle tour starting in Rosslare harbour and ending in Belfast. The route was to follow the coast to Dungarvan and then to head inland over the Knockmealdown mountains and around the northern foothills of the Galtee Mountains. Next was to skirt arounf the Ballyhoura mountains before heading directly for Tarbert where I took the ferry accross the river Shannon. I then followed the Atlantic coast up to the most northerly point of Ireland to Malin Head. I then continued around the coast to Belfast.

I covered 1190 Miles in 14 days of cycling with 3 rest days, so the average daily mileage was 85 miles.
