Connemara is often described as the 'western wonderland of Europe', and when you come here you'll see why: it's where rugged mountains soar above breathtaking wild Atlantic beaches. Your route will take you both inland and along the coast, giving you the chance to soak up the region's dramatic scenery in all its diversity.

This tour is typical of our 'gentle cycling' ethos, featuring relatively short distances and no big hill climbs, so there's plenty of time to explore the various cultural and natural attractions of the area - all part of the fun. There's also some fantastic accommodation en route, including some unique hotels with wonderful restaurants serving up local seasonal food with a characteristic Irish charm you won't forget!
