Default 2 day starter course

Hi,
Got my provisional so looking to do the 2 day intro course early next year. Probably gonna take 2 days off and do it during the week. Any recommendations for courses/instructors in cork? South Tipp would do fine too but I imagine cork is more likely.
Cheers!

I did the two day lgbt, never sat on a bike before. I think it is too much too soon. I came back for a third day.

A lot of instructors say they only do lgbt in two days but I would shop around until you find someone who'll give you half days or evenings and let you do it properly.

Both Declan and Eddie at bikecraft do the two day. Declan without a doubt has better facilities, a big wide parking lot, both have nice bikes mt07 for a2 and full. Declan had a gn125 last time I was there for the A1 and Eddie had a ybr125 and a few Benellis.

I think if you have never sat on a bike you'd be better off buying a cheap dirt bike or even road bike and ride it around the garden or parking lot etc.

I'm not really sure who to tell you who to go with, when I did a2 with Eddie there were 3 of us on the first day and 4 of us training on the second day, I was on the back as I had the most experience and ended up losing communication a few times and getting stuck at red lights. But on the flipside I still felt I got better training off him and he was fair on price €400 for two days. Declan sat in his office pretty much for the first day so I got no real feedback, and it was around the parking lot the whole day, it got boring after the first hour. With Eddie we hit the road almost immediately, so probably not the best choice if you're new. Did A1 with Declan, A2 with Eddie.
