CYCLING TOUR HIGHLIGHTS

  • Galway city – a wonderful cosmopolitan city which has managed to retain its traditions while being at the forefront of music, culture and hospitality in Ireland.
  • Glimpsing the highlights of Connemara will leave you eager to return and discover more.
  • The variety of scenery and attractions you will encounter in such a short time – beaches, coastline, mountains and valleys as well as a National Park and a Gothic castle.

Chloe’s tour highlight: With this tour the wonderful contrast between Galway city and the cycle route in the heart of Connemara leaves you feeling refreshed and as though you have been on a much longer holiday.

Itinerary

Day 1

Arrival to Galway

Arrive to Galway city where we will collect you and bring you from the buzz of this vibrant city to another world of remote, hauntingly-beautiful landscapes, quaint villages and endless views. We will equip you with a bicycle and all you need to explore this western fringe of Ireland, a place shaped by the Atlantic Ocean and thousands of years of history.
Settle into your welcoming accommodation and enjoy your first evening in the heart of Connemara.

 

Day 2

Explore Connemara


We have planned this day to include a variety of the most scenic routes, impressive views, world-class visitor experiences and charming villages. Your tour will include cycling quiet back roads through small, traditional villages while you visit a Gothic abbey, a National Park and even a sheep dog demonstration on a working mountain farm. We know Connemara like our own back yard and we have chosen its highlights to ensure you have the most memorable experience.

Day 3

Departure

Today, after a leisurely traditional Full Irish Breakfast, we will bring you back to Galway city to continue your onward journey. You will leave with a store of memories to treasure until you return!


Accommodation

The B&B option means you will get to stay in a family home where the personal touch and attention to detail is second to none. A true Irish welcome awaits you as well as home-cooked food, comfort and a taste of traditional Irish life.

While you may be staying in part of the family home this does not mean that you will not have privacy and high standards of accommodation you require. Cosy rooms, modern facilities and care and attention are what these properties excel in.

When you select this tour you will have the chance to stay in either hotels or B&B/guesthouse accommodation. The 3* hotels that have been selected are all comfortable, well-appointed properties which also boast their own character and style. You may find yourself in a historic manor house hotel, one with a modern twist or get a 'room with a view' overlooking a shimmering lake or a golden beach.

However they all share the same high standards of hospitality and service and will guarantee you a warm welcome, good food and a relaxing experience after your day on the road.
