    If in Sligo visit Carrowmore Megalith Cemetery about 5 miles outside Sligo town, it predates Newgrange and the Pyramids and is a wonderful place with about 65 tombs/cairns/passage graves spread over a small area

    Took a short break in Inis Oírr, Aran Islands after the Trojans rally in Co Clare, did about 5 hours walking, amazing place and an extension of the Clare Burren, my ferry was from Doolin Pier, 30 minute trip, 25€ return, Fab accommodation 30€ in the Shamrock B&B, even gave me a pot of tea and a plate of freshly baked brown bread at 2pm before I took the ferry back to the mainland

    Found a great B&B run by Dieter and Marie in Ardgroom. It's near the centre and signposted from the village.

    Priest's Leap and great biking just south of Kilgarvan nearby.
    I know this is a really old post but Im heading to the Ardgroom area & just wondered if anyone knows the name of this B&B

    Hopefully Peter will spot your post and remember the name of the B&B, or maybe Richie might know it as he lives in Allihies. If not, then it shouldn't be too hard to find as Ardgroom isn't that big.

    All being well you will get the weather as the Beara is a glorious place. Do take the advice above and ride out to the end of Sheep Head. There is a grand wee cafe out there too.
    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.

    Hi Frontwheel,

    It maybe a fantastic BandB but.... Ardgroom only has one bar which makes it a dreary village on certain evenings. If I were you I would either opt for Kenmare for the night as it is a busyish town with lots of bars restaurants and music, or better still (I would say that) I would head to Allihies which is a much more animated village. Where you can stay at the fairly Plush www.allihiesseaview.com or the more quaint Veronica's Band B two doors up from me.

    If you are going out of season you won't need to book. I will be back in Allihies by early June and could meet up for a drink.

    Little Help Please!
    I'm organising a trip for some of our Continental cousins - i need pics desperately and am very suprised i cant find any of my own!
    Nothing specific - generic photos of Ireland / scenery / roads etc. to show why they should come here.
    (though a Bike in the pic would be nice)
    stick them here / or point me onwards.
    It would help a lot.
    Thanks a lot in advance folks.
    appears bright from a distance / dim up close
