Mizen Head to Malin Head 665 miles
In June 2011 I cycled Ireland’s End to End, partly with my friends Si, Sue and Mark.
The customary extremities are Mizen Head, down in southwest County Cork, and Malin Head, up in the north of County Donegal.
The total End to End distance was 665 miles, and took two leisurely weeks of 40–70 miles a day.
I stayed in hostels and inexpensive hotels, and did the trip on my Raleigh Royal tourer.
