    Hi Tony.
    I hope the weather stays good for your trip.
    I also hope I'm not too late....
    I live in the south and my parents live in west Cork so I generally don't have to look for accommodation when I'm in the area and can't give you any specific recommendations. There's a wide range available from camping to nice hotels. What sort do you need? It's fairly expensive but B&Bs are generally good value for single night stays.
    The west Cork and south Kerry area are ideal for bikes but bear in mind that travelling speeds are lower here than in the UK. 65 kph is a realistic average speed and maybe think about stopping somewhere on the way here or on the way back, or both.
    I love all the peninsulas, the five fingers from Mizen to Dingle ("Daingeann" on signposts to confuse tourists), my favourite being Beara, Iveragh the one I know least well, I've tended to avoid it because it's more touristed than the others. PM me if you'd like more specific roads to ride otherwise just get happily lost. Keep your tank topped up because some areas are a bit low on fuel stations that stay open!
    One last thing is that the road from Macroom to Ballymakeera (main road from Cork to Kerry) is closed for the next few weeks.
