For those not coming home on Sunday, who fancies catching the MotoGp over pub lunch somewhere like Kilarney after a ride round the lakes taking in the Gap of Dunloe?

I will be heading upto Naas after that to get a b&b for return ferry Mon am.

Yeh, count me in. I'll start heading north afterwards, or maybe sit in the sun getting wrecked and stay put :D

I was a bit gutted I was missing the GP, I would have gone. So next best thing.

Right - Twin Burner - your barred! Not jealous - just dont have the ticket fees to fund that trip....side note, do you know u cant park ur bike by ur tent? Something about a lockup onsite...

Raymo - Dysan - It was gonna be a date but now its a party -though I MUST get round the lakes and the Gap of Dunloe first - I think the Brit GP always started late compared to European rounds so if im right it will be about 2pm?

Straight off to Dub after.

More the merrier - you are comin on TLD arent you - would be a bit of a spin for lunch otherwise lol.

Raymo - shouldnt be issues with b&b adhoc - sometimes you need to go from one to another but if ones full, they usually call one close by for you and check availability before sending you there...very friendly like that.

Im planning on heading towards Dub to stay over before gettin to the ferry at 8.20 Mon AM so Newbridge area is good for me if you want to stop there overnight - get there about tea time id say - then head to pub!

2 Q's to ask any b&b - 1. do you have rooms? - 2. is there a pub within stagering distance?

If you dont mind sharing a twin - some hotels will have good deals with pub connected..
