    I've had a route planned for a while now and have been tweaking it now and then, pretty much got it down now and am at the stage I am looking at campsites.

    First night needs to be around the Dublin area as we don't get off the ferry till 12:30 and need to hit the furthest Eastern point on the way down. This should get us north of Dublin by dinner time roughly so I don't want to fight our way through Dublin at that time of night then have to set up tents and that before we eat.....everyone would be worn out and grumpy

    We will travel roughly 170 miles that afternoon, and so I want to find a nice campsite for us (suggestions welcome).

    Second and third days we are going to hump some miles in, each day will be no more than 250 miles but I have found that to be enough for most. We will stay around Cork on the second night and around Dingle on the third night

    We do less miles going up the west side as I am advised there is more to see and more challenging roads.

    Fourth night will be in or around Cong and the fifth night will be at Raboomdeas Mum's up near Donegal.

    Sixth night will be in the Port Rush area where people can see the Giant's Causway and other local attractions, then off back to Larne

    Under 1400 miles in all around the Emerald Isle.

    I will be happier once I have settled on the campsites then I can tweak the route to suit.

    Anyone with a Garmin GPS can have the route to load onto it once I have converted everything to mapsource (what a shit program to work with), let me know who needs it.

    Bring it on

    Cheers Andy,

    That one was top of my list but Dave aka Dakar has given me another option that he thinks is better.

    Good effort though, will get on the phone tomorrow

    Camping

    A wee update for you all on how things are progressing.

    Hopefully everyone who has given me their email addresses now have sponsor forms, if not then forward me your email address and I will send you one.

    Camping for the first night, that's the Sunday night in Ireland is at this place:

    http://www.northbeach.ie/

    They charge 10 euro a skull. Tried to get a discount for those of you that are sharing a tent but they wouldn't wear it

    Second nights camping, that's the Monday night is here:

    http://www.garrettstownhouse.com/

    Managed to get them down to 6 euro a skull
    The place doesn't officially open till the beginning of May so it should be relatively quiet......until we arrive
    Anyway, Kinsale has 40 - 60 restaurants in it and is known for its good nosh, the guy doesn't mind us cooking onsite, there is a wee camping kitchen/room, and although its not stricktly legal he reckons we could barbecue on the blue flag beech if we tidy up after ourselves

    The third night I am thinking will be under a tiled roof somewhere in the Dingle penintula....and must sell beer or Guiness
    Haven't picked anywhere yet although I do have some ideas.

    Suggestions welcome

    TOLL ROADS IN IRELAND

    Just a quick tip make certain you have plenty of euro coins as there are a lot of new toll roads with nice barriers about in Ireland so keep that in mind.
    Paul
    Also a lot of new roads here don't show up on garmin navigators not even on 2010 upgrades. Also new motorway to Belfast parts don't show.
