I knew I was right about the no right turn. The same person insists that there must be a right turn at Harolds Cross and Charlemont Street, but, there isn't. Seems odd that they wouldn't allow cyclists to remain along the canal after they go round the harbour. Am I right thinking there is no way for the cyclist to legally go from the new cycle route onto the south side of the canal bank and continue along the good cycle lanes on that side without turning through some side streets to get back to the canal?
I'm planning on using the canal as my route to/from Howth on Friday, trying to sort it out in my head now.
You'll have to box turn after the bridge, at the junction of Grove Rd and Parnell Rd. Contuine on up Parnell Rd and Dolphin Rd until you get to the luas track, there's a cycle lane beside that; joins onto the new Canal Track.
