    Ah, but no mention of a healthy discount for fellow Tossers.

    There are two opinions of the GS. There are those who have ridden one who think its fantastic and there are those who haven't who know its crap.

    See? Thinking inside the box. I prefer to look at it in this fashion. There is no mention of cost whatsoever, so my assumption is that the pizza, garlic bread and wee tinny are free to tossers . Good show what?

    An old standby for tossers here would be Maud's, on the Main Street in Newcastle. Good grub, nice views, you can sit outside on the terrace for a coffee and a smoke if you're so afflicted and the weather's decent. And the ice cream is excellent

    N54 12.634 W5 53.420

    Further up the street is the Strand Caff and beside it Sea Salt, both good in their own way too. Pavement tables in summer.

    BTW, WTF have they done with the bike parking outside Tropicana?

    Waypoints

    Since it's likely I won't have a printed list of these places I thought I'd put them into Mapsource. (see attached GDB)
    If you can post the GPS locations we could keep an updated GDB of recommended hovels that serve good grub.

    Download this one, update it and upload it again ?

    On the Beara once you get to Castletownbere there is a good fried breakfast to be had in the cafe in front of Supervalue (murphys I think). In fact I think the only fried up breakfast available on the Beara all year round.

    Mc Carthys do good sea food chowder if thats your thing too.

    In Allihies no greasy cafe, but on the road to Dursey in the summer is a caravan doing good food. Summer months only.

    1. The Galley, Glassdrumman Rd, Annalong, Co Down.
    N54 06.612 W5 53.969

    Take away only, but weather permitting tables outside. Best choice of fish I have ever had, size and variety.

    2. Mortons Fish Shop, Ballycastle Harbour, Co Antrim.
    N55 12.443 W6 14.454

    Co Antrims answer to The Galley. Again take away only, can wait for your fish but choice, variety, size and quality worth it.

    3. The Pitstop, Balloo Rd, Bangor, Co Down.
    N54 38.355 W5 40.125

    Choice of Take away, roadside trucker type set up or sit-in and enjoy huge variety, from Ulster fry to Sunday dinner, and pots of tea/coffee, very reasonably priced and large portions.

    4. Cafollas, Conway Square, Newtownards.
    N54 35.588 W5 41.773

    Small family run diner, sit in or take away, everything from beans on toast to Ulster fry and fish and chips and the famed Cafollas Ice Cream. Get there on Saturday and avail of the street market being overwatched by the bronze statue of Blair Mayne.

    5. Daft Eddies, Sketerick Island, Co Down.
    N54 29.287 W5 38.896

    Bar/Lounge/Restaurant overlooking Whiterock Bay and the yacht club. Outside tables are a favourite in the dry weather.

    6. Herrons Country Fried Chicken, Bridge St, Comber, Co Down.
    N54 33.072 W5 44.551

    Personal favourite and very tasty better, (we think) alternative to KFC. Take away only but Kebab on chips with chicken gravy sauce to die for. (Not real kebab meat, just fried chicken diced, but Mmmmmm)

    7. AJ's Downpatrick Rd, Crossgar, Co Down.
    N54 23.748 W5 45.637

    Just agreeing with Geno here and adding waypoint. Top Nosh.

    Sorry if the waypoints are not 100%, but if you get that close you'll see them. Think thats enough for me for today, beginning to look like advertising section in Yellow Pages, hope they have been a help.
    I like the idea of the photo rally but this just seems soo much more rewarding

    My additions are 'Brams Cafe' (signposted) just off the Fairview park end of the Malahide Rd Dublin (nice breaky all day afaik) and 'Gerrys' just off camden st. Their where I go anyway.

    Good idea.........except my Garmin Nuvi dont require MapSource (so I don't have it) and it dont deal with with GDB files I can create POI files if the data can be presented in a .csv spreadsheet-type format? Any chance of running the two formats in parallel on this thread?

    I know, I've got to get a different GPS......

    Maynooth

    Twist Cafe , Fagan's Lane, Maynooth (opposite Straffan Road). Great breakfast, served all day AFAIK. Has become a regular Saturday morning haunt for me.

    Not so much of Greasy spoon but great grub, reasonable priced and well worth the ride out is the Speckled Door on the old head of Kinsale. Sorry I don't have GPS co-ordinates yet. It has great parking and is in a fantastic location.

    Cheers

    Chris
