to Cycle Holidays Ireland, the local Irish bike tour operator
along the Wild Atlantic Way on the West
Coast of Ireland.
tour is all about cycling along the quiet lane ways and Atlantic
coastline of Western Ireland. Every aspect of our bike tour has
been meticulously built and perfected over the past 18 years.
Our support will afford you all the opportunity to explore the
villages and countryside at your own pace. Our tour attracts folks
who want to stop off take photos and chat with locals they meet
along the way. Because of our ability to transfer the entire group
you will get to explore vastly different regions including Connemara
National Park, Burren National Park the
Aran Islands, Cliffs of Moher as well
as much of the Wild Atlantic Way. I almost forgot to mention the
important thing ,,, there will be Guinness. Our unique support
system facilitates seasoned bikers as well as the novice.
culture still flourishes in these regions. The ancient native
Irish language (Gaelic) is still spoken by locals going about
their daily business. We will teach you some Gaelic throughout
the tour. Enjoy traditional Irish music sessions in the pubs
after cycling through picture postcard countryside. The small
villages and towns you will visit during the tour encompass
the true Irish spirit. Take
a look at many of the photos in this website. Note how often
people are off their bikes doing stuff. Its all about the journey,
not the destination. This
will be your tour, ridden at your pace, tailored to your ability.
We don't run tours in any other part of the world, we just make
a mighty job of this one.
will spend each night in coastal fishing villages complete with
harbours and old fishing boats. We provide you with the opportunity
learn much about the people, history, traditions, sport, and music
that shaped our unique culture. We specialize in the West coast
of Ireland and know it in a manner that only locals can.
My family / ancestors have lived, farmed and fished this coast
since the 1700s. This accumulated knowledge of the landscape,
weather, culture, and history will be at your disposal throughout
is a family owned and operated tour. The tour has been built on
success with many customers returning with family and friends.
All of our tours for 2018 are guaranteed to run thanks to the
number of customers already signed up. This means we have the
wherewithal to provide the best equipment eg. Specialized Sirrus
Comp bikes with lightweight E5 alloy frames and carbon forks,
very competitive prices and no danger of cancelled dates due to
low participation. Just
like any owner operated business the tour benefits greatly from
the constant presence of the person with ultimate responsibility.
local knowledge, experience and superior
level of support provided sets us apart from other tours. Cell
phones are provided to cyclists allowing
a high degree of individual independence while remaining safe
in the knowledge that support is ever present. This means your
not tied to the group during the daily ride. We encourage the
group to spread out and do their own thing.
support buses and a motorcycle comb the daily route offering transfers
over any hilly sections you decide not to cycle. Take as many
transfers as you wish tailoring the daily route to your ability.
Think of the support busses as ski lifts. Utilizing the transfer
system allows us to open up stunning coastal areas that were once
the preserve of only the most advanced cyclist. This is the only
tour in Ireland supported with two busses and a motorcycle. We
provide route maps and more importantly route profiles. We alert
you to historical sites you will encounter at different points
along the route. You then take all this information and tailor
the following days ride to your own liking.
forward to guiding you through my part of Ireland next Summer,
