Not really a big report..but..I had intended to rent a bike in Ireland and toot around Connemara. After driving to my destination I would like to let everyone know, if you intend to cycle in Ireland, buy life insurance first! :ogbiggrin: The roads are often stone walls on both sides with barely enough room for two cars to pass..in fact, some lanes, there is barely enough room for one car..we had about 1' on either side into our house rental. Having said that, some truly hero rides in and around the west coast north of Galway. Stay safe everyone.

I did a cycling safari tour in county Clare some years ago, just south of Connemara. Similar experience to you, @scott43 , with the narrow roads (at least cars are smaller too) but it was an awesome time.
