Bicycling is one of the best ways to explore the Emerald Isle. Pedal stone-lined roads along pastures of grazing sheep with a chance to stop and explore colorful villages we pass on the way. Stop at ancient ruins, castles, medieval monasteries, and churches - all testaments to Ireland's long and sometimes troubled past. By night, enjoy the gracious hospitality and humor of the Irish, not to mention hearty food and drink. Throw in the opportunity to experience Ireland's finest traditional music in the pubs of Doolin, and you have the makings for an unforgettable tour.
As you take in Ireland's varied landscapes from coastal scenery, towering cliffs, lakes, fiords and glaciated valleys on your bike you will also be able to soak up the remnants of history and traditions. From hand-knit sweaters, folk music and dancing to Dun Aenghus and the Irish Gaelic language, we're sure this country will capture both your imagination and heart.
