Stage 5, Déardaoin 26ú Bealtaine / Thursday 26th May

Castletownbere - Blarney 156 kms.

Stage 5 heads from Castletownbere to Blarney, with the 156 kilometre route beginning with a quartet of third category mountain primes, then ramping up over the second category climbs of Moskeagh and Windy Gap.

The latter comes 25.3 kilometres from the end of the stage and will certainly set up a tremendously exciting finish in Blarney.
