Is Dublin to Galway in 3 days is possible? And is this route suitable?

Going to be cycling from my house in the south of England to liverpool, where I will get a ferry over to dublin with my dad. Once I arrive in Dublin, I'm thinking of cycling to galway as it doesn't seem that far away - and I like the idea of cycling across the great nation of Ireland :)

My plan is to go along the canal from Dublin to Tullamore, and then to Shannon harbour. Where I will make my way on the roads to Galway ---> most likely following something like this (someone elses route that I managed to find online): http://www.mapmyride.com/ie/birr-l/day-3-shannon-harbour-to-galway-route-71342710

I understand that I will be going against the wind, and I believe I'm an average cyclist. But would this most likely be possible in 3 days? And would you say this is a good route to follow? I've found a few people talking about the canal, but I've read nothing about shannon harboue to galway - making me suspicious about doing it.

Also if anyone has any advice / recommendations about crossing ireland, then I would immensely appreciate them! As I have no experience with cycling at all in Ireland.

Many thanks for any replies given,
Rob

Hi Rob,

Did you ever do the Dublin-Galway ride? I'm planning on doing the same myself this summer so any tips would be gratefully received!
