Agreed, it's well worth the trip. I enjoyed riding in Cork (the county) but I found that all lot of the rural lanes were relentlessly hilly and badly surfaced, although I guess your route is just an approximation. Most of the R-roads are pretty good to ride.
I would make time to visit some of the islands too. Cape Clear is pretty stunning (with a ridiculously steep hill out of the harbour) and has a youth hostel, I think, you could probably camp. The Skelligs off Portmagee are essential too.
There are campsites, but I would camped occasionally out of sight and it wasn't a problem. I guess it depends how good you are at scouting out sites.
Basically it's really good and you'll have a great time.
