The route will leave Stamullen moving north through the counties of Meath, Monaghan and Armagh. Then heading east towards the Mourne Mountains and the main climb of the day over Spelga Dam (just once ;-)) at 167km. The route then returns over the Cooley mountains and down along the coast passing through Dundalk, Clogherhead, and Drogheda before finishing at Stamullen.
There will be climbing, but the scenic nature of the route should make it worthwhile.
