CYCLING IN IRELAND
On our group cycling holidays we bring
together groups of people from all over
the world. Our daily cycle is a leisurely
30 - 40 miles which we find gives plenty
of time to stop and explore your surroundings.
Longer options are available for those
who want to stretch their legs.
Our Antrim, Donegal and Kerry safaris are
hillier than the other routes but happily
there are no large mountain ranges to cross
in any part of Ireland.
We take up to 20 people on each tour and
many come on their own. A great group spirit
develops as people swap stories over dinner
at the end of the day.
Although the guide will not be cycling
with you, he or she will be driving the
support van and shall make a sweep to ensure
that all is well and offer lifts to those
who want a break. This provides a sense
of freedom in that you can travel at your
own pace in the security that our guide
is there for you in the event that you
might need them.
All our group bike tours start on a Saturday,
simply click on any of the area's to the
right that you are interested in travelling
to and discover our tours in the area along
with the group departure dates.
and Kerry Ref ICSCK
The dramatic, unspoilt beauty of the Beara
Peninsula is undoubtedly the hidden gem
of the South West. We have now changed
the focus of our safaris here to reflect
Mayo and Galway Ref
Connemara is perfect cycling country, where
roads go around the hills rather than over
them. The scenery changes from dramatic
mountain ranges and fjords to sweeping
open bogland and a rocky fractal coastline.
The Highlands of
Donegal is a place apart from the rest
of the Republic, in many ways closer to
Scotland than to Dublin. It has some of
our most dramatic scenery, a particular
music tradition, a distinctive accent and
a friendly welcome.
West Cork Coastline Ref
The road winds along the River Lee and
the West Cork Coast, where the smell of
the sea battles with the scent from bracken
and wild flowers. This tour starts in Cork
City and finishes up in Kinsale.
Clare and The
The Burren has a maze of backroads with
little traffic, and fields of exotic flowers
and cracked limestone. The county's greatest
pride is in its traditional music, which
means that most villages will have a range
of sessions each night.
The Ring of Kerry
and Dingle Peninsula Ref
The ring of Kerry is famous throughout
the world for its spectacular scenery.
While the main roads can be busy, we avoid
the traffic by taking some hillier options
that criss-cross these two dramatic peninsulas.
The Wild West
Mayo Ref ICSWM
Mayo has some of Ireland's least known
and most beautiful scenery. We set out
from Westport and circle around Lough Conn
for the first two days before heading North
to the Atlantic and the wide-open plains
of West Mayo. Our rest day is on Achill
The Glens of
We circle around the spectacular roads
and villages of the Glens of Antrim combining
the drama of the coastal road with the
beauty of the Glens. We have the chance
to visit the Giant's Causeway as well as
the village of Bushmills to sample its
liquid delights! The route incorporates
several sections of cycle path developed
by Sustrans as part of the
cycle route project.
