Let's see, We are back in Ireland for a quick chat with the various family members to say goodbye to all. We are finally moving on to the continent and will stop freeloading.
So to sum up for Ireland:
Gas is easy to find but only the 95 octane. High test is hard to find. Prices from .85 to .95 euro. ( same price in Scotland just in pounds YIKES!!!)
Eating in the gas stations is easy cheap and shockingly very good. Most have a deli/hot food service.
Pubs are great. 'nuff said
Now to the roads..... 95% of them are narrow bumpy and have no sight lines around the corners. Bring all the suspension you can cause you will need it. Being on the wrong side of the road adds to the fun.
As a Canuck converting from the Cdn$ Ireland, particularly Dublin, can be expensive. To conserve your cash try staying outside of the bigger towns in B&B's
Although this is no gaurantee. We are not camping but that would obviously be less expensive again. We do have a camp stove with us so we can cook simple meals and make coffee in anyplace we stay.
We are off to France on Sept 12th taking the ferry from Roselare in Ireland to Roscoff in France. Will let you know how the Irish Ferries handles bikes.
