meself and a buddy did this last year
we were getting a few photo rally points whilst getting to malin head for the annual malin head to mizen head trip in 1 day

the road from castlederg to maghera, across to torr head via ballymoney / armoy, was narrow, but the surface was fantastic and was twisty with it, one of the best days out, lots of stuff to do and see on the north antrim coast, highly recommended

the route

Jaysus you'd need a fifty mile straight stretch of freeway to ride a Harley on.

Or you could use it to plough a field

Hi,i can recommend going from rosslare-dungarvan-cappoquin-clogheen-fermoy-mallow-killarney.If you are staying in killarney 2 nights,do the slea head drive one day(towards dingle),the ring of kerry the next(towards cahirciveen/waterville,stop on valentia island for grub!)
Returning i can suggest killarney-kenmare-bantry-skibbereen-clonakilty(worth staying a night,campsite and good pubs)-kinsale-cork-dungarvan-rosslare.
Enjoy your trip.

savage bit of road, bit bumpy and rough in places, but loads of tight bends and corners, tis 80km road, need to watch out for the usual mobile speed traps & tractors,

another class bit of road
http://g.co/maps/9etu3

best road found lately, Navan at the Round O Pub head out towards Kings Court through Nober. In KingsCourt town, (2nd round about) take a right for Dun Na Ri forest Park. Its about 1 Km down this road on the left. I've never seen or been to a better place. Such a relaxing driver after returning from a hectic India where they would run you over and drive off.

Wheeeer de fook is dat, is the first thing enters my head, so I'm compiling a database showing the best biking roads around the country, I know there are websites and this has been done before, but on a larger pan European(spits) basis and with more emphasis on camping & s cenery etc.

It's a small country, and you're not let out for long on a Sunday (if at all CharlieIRL *cough*) so a quick blast around a series of nice sweeping corners with a good (not necessarily billiard table smooth) surface where you can get the power down early and have a bit of craic is more important than any s ceneryetc. even if its in the middle of nowhere and takes a shitty road
Instructions are below and simplified as much as possible (will form part of an overall 'Best Biking Roads' database when complete) and the rules are :

No apes / old-timers sticking down motorways or 'cork to donegal on a goldwing' type shyte. These routes will be personally inspected and may be used on future 'discerning harley rider with tassels and tatts making mutual hitherto suggestive eyebrow movements while looking for friendship and maybe more, runs' so if there's any bog roads with craters the size of Bogmans mouth it'll be an automatic 2-month sentence for rehabilitation with Cecil

How to add routes ;
