Ireland, you done it again! Breath-taking scenery every day, unbelievable sunshine and the best driving roads we could ask for!
Our Ireland’22 Cannon Run went off with a bang and every one of our Cannon Runners cant wait for the next one!
Starting off our event in Dublin, Twenty Two Club hosted our private launch party where we all got to enjoy some live entertainment from our in house team and party the night away!
READY, STEADY, GO! Mondello Park, Irelands only internationally approved motor racing circuit was our chosen start line location. Offering each of our clients the opportunity to take their pride and joy on the track! SHOWA racing provided full pit access for us to watch the team of drifters tearing up the track and filling the air with tyre smoke. After a full morning of track time and watching some of Irelands finest drifters, we held out first drivers briefing, where each of the guys got to find out everything, we had in store for them on the trip!
80 cars strong, we hit the road for Wicklow Mountains. The sound of Ferrari V8s, Audi V10’s and Lamborghini V12’s filled the air. After the Wicklow Mountains, we continued south toward Wexford stopping off at Jack Whites inn for some refreshments and a break on route, before arriving at our first evening venue of the event! BBQ, live entertainment and Cannon Run family, what a night!
Day 2 - Engines started, from modified R35 GTR’s and S15’s, to Range Rover SVR’s and 5 Lamborghini Aventador’s! We knew the day we had planned ahead was something very special! Our first stop, Waterford, but on route we got to take in some of the beautiful southern coastline and roads on offer. Waterford Council pulled out all the stops for us and had the city closed off for our arrival. Our cars flooded the streets and dedicated on street parking outside the famous Waterford Crystal was arranged for us. The Reg put on a fantastic lunch time stop for us where we all had a well-earned rest and enjoyed the sunshine! Once more, we hit the road, this time with Cork set firmly into our navigations. Another luxury hotel awaited our arrival before Cannon Run night time starts once more, with brilliant hospitality put on in Cork by Clancys bar and nightclub for us! What a night was had by all!
Day 3 - Wild Atlantic Way! What a road! From Cork all the way to Molls gap and beyond, our personal favourite, with some of the most beautiful scenic points on offer, and roads to match that of the best Europe has on offer, once more Ireland really showed us how special it really is. Our destination, Bunratty, Durty Nellie’s. Each year this is a Staple of our Ireland event and each year they leave us speechless. 1000’s of people lined the streets for our arrival into Bunratty and Durty Nellie’s really put on a show for us with live entertainment all day and night, great food and Guinness flowing!
Day 4 - After a phenomenal afternoon and evening with Durty Nellie’s, we head back there to start our final leg, from Limerick back to Dublin. Our Finish line.
Honestly, there is no place quite like Ireland, it really is everything you wish for and more! We cannot wait to be back there next year for our 5 year anniversary and an extended 5 day event where we will take on the North & South. Check out the link below to see what we have in store!
Until then, we love you Ireland!
