Question Ireland bike storage?

My travels are bringing me to Ireland for a few months. I know....horrible timing arriving as winter is arriving! Oh well, never said I was smart.

Sometime in November or December I need to store my bike for a few weeks while I fly to the USA. I have not set the exact dates.

Does anyone know of a place where I can store my bike?

I am willing to go anywhere in Ireland, I can always hitchhike back. I am not fussy with the storage conditions. Even outside is fine if we can cover it with a tarp.

Ireland Bike Storage

Hi Othalan,

I can store your bike near Dublin, drop you to the airport and collect you on your return from the USA.
Let me know your plans via PM and we'll take it from there.

Hi Othalan,
I live twenty minutes from Dublin airport in Co Meath where I have an alarmed and heated workshop. You are more than welcome to store your bike here free of charge. I am a motorcycle riding instructor and could also go for a spin with you offering some pointers on staying safe in Ireland and the world for that matter. Homemade meals and good company also available.

No worries! All part of the adventure, and I've had lots of fun here in Cork.

The new sheepskin is amazing! What an improvement over the old one, than you!!!

Great to hear.......

You should check out a place called Crosshaven in Cork, lovely little fishing village, while there you could go for a wild swim in Church bay..........

Safe travels, talk soon
