Round Ireland

Thinking of doing a Round Ireland early-ish next year.
A cruise that is. NOT a race.
Anybody else interested?

We are based in Cork but could met somewhere on the east coast.

Which direction are you thinking of going?

Baydreamer,

Staring Dublin, then going clockwise (I suspect). Taking say 6 days.
Do need info though, on petrol availability on the round island trip. Can you help?

This was the advise given to these guy's http://www.uk-challenge.co.uk/ doing the same trip last year from http://powerboat.ie/forums/ribs-irel...ity-price.html.


OK. Roughly 100 mile stops clockwise could mean these.

1) Howth or Dun Laoghaire to Waterford.

2) Waterford to Kinsale.

3) Kinsale to Cahersiveen, Co. Kerry.

4) Cahersiveen to Clifden, Co. Galway. (Quay dries)

5) Clifden to Easkey or Sligo in Co. Sligo or Killybegs in Co. Donegal.

6) From your choice of last three to Portstewart nr. Coleraine.

7) Portstewart to Carrickfergus.

8 ) Carrickfergus to Howth or Dun Laoghaire in Dublin.

I live on the west coast (Galway), if you guys are stopping anywhere in Clare/Galway/Mayo and are stuck for diesel give me a shout, i've got a bowser and would be willing to help your re-fuels (Logistically, not financially )
