MH2MH cycle tour – Day 3

Tralee to Lahinch

A fairly flat and long day today, and from Tralee the route goes ’round the houses’ a bit to take in the lovely coastal views that the landscape affords. Then cutting back inland a bit to Tarbert for lunch and a ferry across the border between the counties of Kerry and Clare. Then again, hugging the coast for the best views, to Lahinch which is a small but perfectly formed village famous for it’s amazing surfing and surf schools.  (Description based on route notes from Peak Tours).

A very windy day with occasional sunshine between the clouds but at least it was another day without rain! We cycled through rolling farmland and some small villages in County Kerry to Tarbert for lunch. Then we took the Shannon ferry across to County Clare and cycled to Lahinch in extremely bluster and gusty conditions but thankfully the windy was generally behind us so it was quite exhilarating!

Next: Day 4 – Lahinch to Galway
