    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 ?

    Even posting a small street map would do the trick, then we could find the waypoint on MapSource.

    Anyway, I've added "Dinos" a chipper just outside Cork city.

    Vireo, how do you create POI on the Nuvi, can you type in coordinates ?

    I had a nice coffee last week in Laragh at the Deli place at the end of the Sally Gap road. Not the cheapest coffee, but tasted good. I rode down from Dublin for a coffee break which is the kind of thing a new bike will bring on.

    FYI. I used a tool called GPS Utility to translate the .gdb file to .kml so I could import it to Google. It seems to support a lot of formats. The url is http://www.gpsu.co.uk/ for the software (free).
    The map is here :
    Google map of greasy spoons, and can be edited by anyone.

    Apart from saving a location on the device as a 'favourite', the only way I know to do so is to create a .csv file with Lat, Long, Description/comment in successive columns. Thus I have "Custom POI's" files such as 'Greasy Spoons'; 'Hotels'; 'Garda speed check areas' etc, each as a separate xxxx.csv file.

    I then use POI Uploader to store them on the Nuvi, or edit/upload via POIEdit or some such appl...?

    I think I need a Zumo.....

    the Dead centre of this Island.

    Heidis,
    Courtyard Coffee shop
    Crank road
    (no - really, it IS called Crank Road!).

    Heidi is sound, prices reasonable, portions are good and Bikers welcomed.
    middle of the town, just off the main street - car park opposite.


    MAG and IRTA have often held meetings there coz it's central, and theres a room for hire nearby - but ...really it's coz of Heidis food

    Give Kehoes Deli beside the Roost Bar a go. Full Fry is excellent. Lunch menu is first class but slightly more than twist both in quantity of food and price. Ted the bosses hubby is a bit of a pain in the a@s*, Alvern boss and great cook. Ted does the hiring and firing of staff waitress is always a looker. Dooh I'm not supposed to say those things any more.

    Streetside Café, Enfield, Co Meath.

    We stopped off at this café on the way to Aherlow and had a good lunch, with friendly service at a reasonable price. Recommended if you are in the area.

    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.

    On the way back from Aherlow Stumpy, Mandy and I had lunch at Locke's Pantry in Kilbeggan, Co. Westmeath.

    The staff were friendly and the service was good. A good spot to stop at again.

    Whilst there you can also visit the distillery museum.

    Kay's Kettle

    Kays Kettle opposite the church in Athleague; 5 k S.W. of Roscommon is good. Kay did a fine rasher roll for me yesterday morning with a mug of coffee; she tells me that bikers are always welcome.

    Brilliant fish and chipper on Howth Harbour sit on wall and eat to hearts content. Beware of seagulls they are very greedy, no fear of humans and will eat HOT chips etc.

    Also Stoops on Skerries Harbour............ you must try the Beer Battered Cod Fillet.........not to be surpassed.
    Coffee shop in Laragh, great bacon in toast sandwiches.

    And of course Maddocks on a Saturday morning for sausages.............they are free!!!!
