While researching places to stay if cycling in The Slieve Bloom Mts., I came across ‘The County Arms’ in Birr which has an excellent reputation………………..and a leisure centre!

Birr has a fabulous castle, observatory and is a gateway to numerous walks and activities.

Rooms are not available Sun 16th but we can cycle, walk till late & shower in leisure centre. You’ll be back for annual ‘Round Dalkey Island’ Fin Swim on Paddy’s Day! (You can always  have ‘High Tea’ in Finnstown House on the way home.)

Just throwing it out there!!!!!!!!!!!

I will make booking in early January.

Yours in diving, snorkelling, cycling, biking, swimming and related activities.
