Well, I can finally write to tell my experience in green Ireland.
My journey start on 4th of August, with the fly from Bologna to Dublin and, it's better, I explain my project in two words: Ireland in MTB.
My intention was to travel as much as possible in Ireland with my MTB, with a series of stages that I had set out to do.
My journey was divided into five stages, which I reached every time using the train (mine is not a travel bike so I could not move only with that):
1) Dublin (4 - 9 august)
2) Athlone (9 - 12 august)
3) Galway (12 - 19 august)
4) Limerick (19 - 22 august)
5) Kildare (22 - 24 august)
6) Dublin (24 - 25 august, only for the return trip to Italy).
Well, the first few days I walked around Dublin, from Phoenix Park to the Poolbeg Lighthouse, with a visit to Trinity College and all the pubs that were possible, with the help of a friend who lives in Dublin.
Along with this friend I also went to the Howth Peninsula, a really nice place.
And finally, my first bike journey: as my first mountain bike trip I chose the Powerscourt Waterfall, here below a picture.
A journey of 70 km in the countryside south of Dublin.
But this picture is not enough to explain my experience in Dublin, on the contrary ... I traveled around the city and I could see Temple Bar, Portobello (I had the hostel there), the center with Hal'penny Bridge, the Spire, and I I'm in love with Dublin.
And, last but not least, Tracy, my bike!
At the next post for the Athlone step!
