Found a class route in Donegal. Starts of a lovely scenic route with no traffic through the Donegal mountains from a beautiful town on the west of Donegal. Then after Ardara (N56) you get a sweet road no straights all bends, perfect new road as well....Best road I've been on so far.

I like this route

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&sour...3&ie=UTF8&z=11

Some great twisties and long sweeping bends. Good surface most of the way too

I wouldn't pass to much remarks on the directions in Drogheda. You'd be going past the hospital and taking a left straight out the Ballymakenny rd

For anyone in the Wexford\Waterford/Kilkenny Area The R700 between New Ross and kilkenny is quite an enjoyable road with lots of twistys and reasonably good road surface.

Heres the link.

This is perhaps too obvious to bother mentioning...
Antrim Coast Road and Glens

I built this route in Google Earth, created a Google account specially for you guys and laboriously imported the whole shebang into Google Maps; that shows how much I like biker.ie

The good thing about Google Earth is you can get an idea of the terrain, as in these images:
coastRoadGlencloy01.jpg coastRoadGlenariff01.jpg coastRoadGlendun01.jpg coastRoadTorrHead01.jpg
If you set your 'Tour' options right (i.e. close in, slowish speed and high angle), you can get a reasonable idea of what travelling the route might be like.

I've taken some of your URLs and opened them directly in Google Earth for a mouth-watering muck-about

A lovely one with best of both, Blessington, baltinglass, castledermot, carlow, athy, kilcullen, naas and home. Fill the tank but a great blaster on a fine morning. Take in Kilkenny and castlecomer if you've got the time. Round trip hour and a half.
