Bicycling in mystical Ireland (1995)

by Andy / FarAndFurther-team

Here are some photos from a bicycle trip I did along Ireland's west coast in 1995. I and two friends started from Dublin and cycled some 800 km all the way to the Dingle Peninsula and through the Connor Pass to Tralee, where we loaded our cycles into a bus and headed back to Dublin. We cycled about 80 km a day, which doesn't sound like too much. However, the roads along the west coast are very hilly greatly adding to the effort level.

I took lots of pictures along the way. In my eyes the countryside of Ireland seemed pretty mystical and somehow left back in time a long time ago. On the other hand, big cities like Dublin and Cork are lively enough with hundreds of pubs offering live music, good beer and interesting discussions.
