    Just got back from the Killaloe weekend and already you are tempting me back.
    With a bit of luck will be redundant by then so this is a definite maybe.

    Just one query - is Jochen leading the ride out to get there?
    I always wondered why my surname began with G and ended with S

    There's 2 craft type shops in the village, mainly for the Merkins. Other than that 'the ladies what shop' will need to rent a minibus - there's a sweater shop (supposed to be very good for a decent gansey ) back towards Ma'am at the Lough Nafooey turnoff, there's an Avoca shop outside Letterfrack or head to Clifden for a proper day out
    Or youse could just 'stay in' & pamper yerselves

    I will be riding down on the Friday afternoon & I won't be using motorways / main roads & people can follow me. But it's entirely discretionary, I won't force you to tag along
    Just 'cos you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you !

    Remember, experience only means that you screw-up less often.

    I toured Ireland for a couple of weeks last year and stayed in the Leenane Hotel for a couple of Nights. The rooms at the front of the hotel have some great views. In the village there is not much todo and the local pub turned out to be quiet rude only serving food to the locals..?? Making sure they served everyone else before serving us as well. So I'd give that a miss and stay in the Hotel which does a great food and a nice pint.
    The R335 on the opposite side of the loch is in my top 5 roads. So good I rode it twice...


    View from the hotel...


    Looking from the R335 with the hotel in the distance.

    On the R335 with not a car insight.
