Mizen Head is the most southern most point of mainland Ireland
As good as place as any to start the Wild Atlantic Way
They even give you a starting line
The route winds up the west coast
Through foggy Irish mist
Over mountains with wonderous views
Mountains where Irish legends such as Finn Mc Cool sat.
A coast where there are fishing villages both small
With cliffs towering out of the sea
Relics of stone age and Celtic history dating back 5000 years
Quintessential Irish pubs
And then at the end
After 6 days of challenging riding
At Malin Head the most northern point of mainland Ireland
They provide a finish line

Once again, lovely photos of what looks like an incredible trip. How nice it would be to travel through this kind of landscape during the day and then to end up in a cozy pub with a good pint and some proper live music after stopping. What could be better? Happy trails!
It was an amazing ride. Challenging in terms of different road types, the weather and resisting having too many pints lol
How beautiful! have always wanted to go to Ireland and Scotland. Doubt I will ever go. : ( Thank you for sharing the pics, I LOVE the start, finish line. Did you do a practice start and rev your motor?;) Did you wheelie across the finish hehhe kidding.
Arh Mick it be lookin grand. The tarmac looks a little brutal for sure, and the scenery will be caste in rock in your memory. I remember you telling me once. Guinness, now there’s a hearty meal.
A nourishing meal to be precise lol
