Annual Irish Cycling holiday

Lady guests arrive in Youghal by bike from Cobh!

Forget about a car, the location of the nearest bus stop or train station – you can arrive at the Quality Hotel in Youghal by bike – that is, if you are as enthusiastic as sister’s Bridie O’Sullivan and Teresa Haggett!

Bridie hails from Cobh and Teresa lives in London and they have just fulfilled their annual dream, and had a mini holiday at the same time, by cycling from Cobh to the Quality Hotel in Youghal. They have been doing this, every year, since the hotel opened over 10 years ago.

These two ladies are amazing; they visit the hotel every September by cycling from Cobh to Youghal. However, after checking into the Hotel, it’s not yet time to put the legs up as Bridie and Teresa then walk 4 km along the beach to Youghal – and 4 km back! This is followed by a lengthy swim of 10 lengths in the 20 metre pool – WOW! The ladies then forget about exercise for rest of that day and relax with a well deserved dinner, followed by a beverage in the bar later in the evening.

The following morning it’s all action again after the ladies arise. Following a full hearty breakfast, they then cycle the 30 miles back to Cobh!

 Inspirational Ladies – well done!

Teresa travels home from London every year to do this trip with her sister and they are both looking forward to their trip again next September – as the staff at the Quality Hotel also look forward to welcoming them.
