Ferrybank to Curracloe Loop (Beginner Spin)
Today’s Spin from Ferrybank Pool out to Curracloe is a perfect Beginner Spin of 24kms much of which is on the Wexford Cycle Hub.
We meet at the Swimming Pool Car Park and ride down to the main road at the Riverbank Hotel where we STOP and then turn right. We use the cycle lane for a lot of this section as we cycle into Castlebridge. We go left into the village and then turn right up past the Catholic Church. This small country road goes through Glasgany, Garylough and Ballybeg. At Cooney’s Cross in Ballybeg we STOP and turn right and ride for about 3kms as far as Ballyfarnogue Cross at the main Wexford to Gorey road where we STOP again.When the way is clear we go right and almost immediately left and this little road takes us to the village of Screen.We go straight through the village and cycle for about 4kms to Curracloe. The views of the sea from here are beautiful and at the bottom of the hill we STOP at Curracloe Hotel for our coffee break.
After the break we will cycle on the R742 as far as Fahy’s Cross on the Wexford Cycle Hub. When we reach Fahy’s Cross we STOP and turn left on to the main road back to Wexford. There is a Cycle Path which we use for most of the way back. When we reach the Riverbank Hotel we turn left and ride back up to the Pool. This completes today’s Curracloe Spin.

I live in Castlebridge in Co. Wexford and I am a keen leisure cyclist. I try to get out as often as possible and enjoy cycling mostly within my own locality. I would love to see more people out on their bikes, taking advantage of all the health and social benefits that cycling has to offer.
