Hi, Last summer i set out from belfast cycling 800 miles around ireland tightly hugging the coast clockwise and i returned home from Galway. I cycled on average 65-70 miles per day and camped each evening in my cheap argos 1 man tent. The weather was lovely and i enjoyed the peacefulness of camping. This year i am going to cycle irelands end to end. I know i can shed quite a few kilos without my camping gear and it would be nice to be able to change/dry my clothes. Would people recommend camping or staying in b&bs/hostels? The camping would be cheaper, but not by all that much, maybe 10 euro a night cheaper than hostels. Benefits i see of camping are that i enjoyed the freedom of it, i actually became quite attached to my tent and enjoyed putting it up and living in it. I didnt interact with many people, but i was okay with that, i dont mind being on my own. The obvious benefits of hostels are less weight and added comfort. However they can be more expensive and take me away form the connection of cycle touring? Also i wouldnt want to show up to find that its full, so i would need to book ahead of time. This would be okay but what if i have a bad day or get lost and cant make my destination, or if i have a good day and feel i can keep going another few towns. What do people think?
