Connemara and The Burren is our most popular tour for a very good reason. It is stunningly beautiful and we use only the very finest hotels that serve outstanding food often fresh from the rivers, lakes and seas you are overlooking while having dinner.
The Burren is a biking and hiking paradise with an enormous amount of unique plant life and wild flowers. We ride through quaint villages and visit the world famous Cliffs of Moher, with views of the Aran Islands and take a hike with a local botanist and archeologist. Stunning coastal rides combined with country lanes surrounded by peat bogs on both sides, make this diverse area one of Europe’s most desirable biking destinations.
Connemara is an area of breathtaking beauty; the Twelve Bens mountain range are visible at all times, the Maumturks in the distance, Sky Road, Roundstone (in our opinion Ireland's prettiest village), Kylemore Abbey, Lough Inagh Valley, the majestic Killary Fjord (Ireland's only fjord), Lough Corrib, 13th century Ashford Castle...This is enchanted Ireland in all its glory with historic sites around every corner. The back roads we use are quiet and are mostly flat although there are a few rolling hills. Sky Road (optional) is probably the biggest challenge of the week.
