Donkeys Have Souls, Too is the season premiere of The Amazing Race 12.
Teams must fly to Shannon, Ireland. Upon arrival, teams must make their way by taxi to Rossaveal ferry port to Inishmore and find Teampall Bheanain. At the church, teams must sign up for one of three ferries departing in the morning at 8:00 am, 8:30 am, and 9:30 am. The first two ferries can only accommodate three teams, while the last ferry will carry five.
Teams must take the ferry back to Rossaveal and choose a marked car to receive their next clue.
Teams must drive themselves to Cleggan and find Cleggan Farm. Once there, teams must take a tandem bike to search for their next clue.
The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to ride a high-wire bicycle across a windswept ravine suspended almost 200 ft above the North Atlantic, while their partner, sitting 8 ft below, is taken for the ride until reaching their next clue above the wire.
The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:
Teams must choose a donkey and fill each of its baskets with 15 pieces of peat. Then, they have to walk the donkey back to the entrance of the farm to receive their next clue.
