This route has everything from long straights to sweeping bends... Road surface mainly good... Few spots to watch out for but mostly safe... Enjoy :-)
Lovely road with some nice twisty bits.
Quite a testing run going up from either end, the surface is mostly average to bad, but there is a sweet spot of nice new tarmac. Watch out for the cyclists... poor buggers slogging up that climb
Cambers on the road will keep you on your toes as you go over the top!! Probably best suited for a DualSport, I found it a challenge on a laden Adv bike. :-)
Good fun on a smaller bike. Tight roads with good views. No fast sweepers here... :)
A good alternative when you don't want to use the Motorway. First stretch from Gort is the nicest, nice views and the odd interesting stretch. The second half is gentle roads, nice scenery, with the odd Irish curve coming out of nowhere.
If heading East towards Dublin, get onto the Motorway just North of Tullsmore. Takes about 50mins more than M'way from Gort to Dublin!
