Day 2 - Killarney bound

& the worst ferry ever!!!

sunny 18 °C
View Ireland Trip on 2wheels to's travel map.

We both slept well after yesterdays 270 miles, which in hindsight is about 70 miles too much on winding A roads.

Anyway, full breakfast (welsh!) and a great nights sleep ready for day 2, or so we thought.

It's a short 15 ish miles to the ferry port made bad by mist and drizzle, limiting visibility and never mind wet grids, wet cow shit is like flippen Teflon, non stick, as a twitchy rear wheel testified.

Straight on to the ferry on arrival to the dock. But the ferry itself was the worst either of us had been on, most people being sick, some just where they sat, bad!

Ireland, straight of the ferry, no checking or anything & straight on to Killarney. The roads are amazing. Car drivers are so bike aware and pull out of your way.. Great gentle winding roads, all 170 miles to Killarney.

We arrived at Killarney around 8:30, no food at the digs so quick shower and short ride into Killarney, which is a little party town at night, all ages clapping to Irish jigs and drinking black Guinness,great.

So up to now great weather, great roads in Ireland. Tomorrow, back to Rosslare, but maybe by coastal road?
