Absolutely perfect race, amazing scenery, lovely people, great route, long challenging climbs and some brilliant 40mph+ descents, the only slight downside was some of the roads were very rough but i feel that added to the race, biggest disappointment was we had to shoot of straight after the race and didnt get to enjoy the craic afterwards.

Excellent event, stunning scenery, and the closed roads makes all the difference. Well, when you remember you can cross the white line that is!

A fantastic ride through a beautiful part of Ireland. The route is lumpy but no hard climbs, the run South along the western seaboard of Ireland is beautiful but expect the prevailing winds to object to your progress! Closed roads events are rare and make this a very special and fast route. Looking forward to being back next year.

Overall i really enjoyed the day, but it was my first cycling event so hard for me to compare. Closed roads made it really unique though, and the route was fantastic. However, I must sat that the food stops were not good, particularly the last couple considering approximately 1400 people competed when up to 2000 were expected. The t-shirt for which i paid €20 for was poorly designed, it could at least have had the year on it, and the goody bag was laughable. I had no problem with the entry fee, but felt that in exchange for this, the goody bag could have been a bit more worthwhile.
