travelling by train from Dublin to Killarney with bikes

We are planning to cycle the famous Ring of Kerry with Killarney as our jump off point over a 2 day period, with an overnight stay in a B&B along the way sometime around mid July.

For this, we'll take a train from Dublin with our bikes (2-5 persons).

We haven't done this before - the train ride, the cycle run (but we are training for this now) - thus any advise will be highly appreciated. In particular:

1. Are bikes allowed in trains going to Killarney? How much does the usual fare cost including the bike?

2. In going around the ring, are there B&Bs along the way, say in between so we could at least halve our trip?

Recommendations are very welcome!

Thanks a lot

See www.irishrail.ie for timetables and fares [on-line at least 7 days in advance is the cheapest option]. Most trains require a change of train at Mallow. For your bikes see http://www.irishrail.ie/index.jsp?p=120&n=153 but there is a maximum of 3 per train on the Killarney leg.
