Default Single-day trip recommendations (starting from Dublin)

Hi everyone,

I had my bike for a week+ now, used only for commuting to work in Dublin.
Now I'm eager to go on a trip. I'd start small, with a couple of single-day trips.
I'm familiar with Howth/Glendalough/Johnnie Fox's so I'm looking for something different from these now, maybe a bit farther from Dublin even.
Could you please recommend a few routes I could do in a single day?

Thank you.

Try doing the more local photo rally spots from the last few years.
You get some decent roads that you would never find and otherwise and Learn a bit of history on the way.

Also look at the riders rally run by the dmtc.
Bring a tent and money it's great craic as it's a mystery rally.

Not too sure what part of Dubland yer in, so this starts and finishes just off the M50.

https://goo.gl/maps/S9ULKcWCSjL2

Head south on the N81 towards Blessington. Stop into the Hollywood Cafe for a bite of brekkie, or if its too soon into the spin, head for the Perch in Baltinglass. Both are great spots for a nibble.

N81 is a nice road, but has some tricky corners so keep your wits about you.

The road from Tullow to Castledermot is a lovely spin with decent surface all along.

There's a cool little steam museum in Stradbally if that's your kinda thing, but check online beforehand as it has unusual opening hours.

From Stradbally head for Athy and then eventually back onto the N81 and north towards the M50.

Just under 200km so will easily have you out for the full day when you includes stops along the way...
