Since 2016, we've run a series of features titled Discover Britain in which we provided you with a collection of short rides around England, Wales, and Scotland. The routes, which were all created to be doable over two days, could be pieced together to create an epic round trip of the UK, and due to the popularity of them we've decided to get ourselves on a ferry to bring you a full circumnavigation of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

While the route proposed should take no longer than two days, if you're travelling over from mainland UK you'll want to allow yourself four. We made the journey from Fishguard to Rosslare on a Friday and were back in work by the Tuesday feeling reinvigorated from a fantastic ride of discovery around Ireland's South East coast. Regardless of which ferry crossing you get (there are two times: 13:10 and 23:45), you'll be best off getting a hotel in Wexford so that you can start the ride on the morning feeling refreshed with a full day ahead of you.
