Our Irish cycling holidays
Ireland is a dreamy place to explore by bike. Our cycling holiday here explore the unspoilt and utterly beautiful Connemara region on Ireland's west coast. Long regarded as the 'emerald of Ireland', the landscape here is full of surprises. There's the rugged Twelve Ben mountain range, lush nature reserves, serene lakes, picturesque fishing villages, remote and pristine sandy beaches, and beyond that, miles and miles of Atlantic ocean stretching as far as the eye can see. The area is also famed for its warm hospitality, and we've certainly found some fantastic hotels offering excellent, friendly service and delicious food.
Why choose a cycling holiday in Connemara?
The network of cycle paths and country roads, many of which are very tranquil with cars few and far between, make the region an ideal place to explore by bicycle. Armed with maps and your route directions, you can travel at your own pace, stopping at whim for a photo opportunity, a nose around the local village or a slice of cake. As usual, we transfer your luggage from hotel to hotel so it's waiting for you when you arrive at the end of the day. There are also some great attractions to visit en route, including Connemara National Park, Kylemore Abbey, Killary Fjord and even Inisbofin Island, where you will stay for one night. Our cycling holiday in Ireland is also a classic example of our 'gentle cycling' ethos, with no more than 20 miles a day of cycling. This makes for a leisurely, relaxed holiday which is ideal for families young and old.
