Pin It

Discover the breathtaking landscapes, ancient roots and colorful people of Ireland the best way—by bicycle—on this sweep of the country’s west coast.

You’ll roll through the unique lunar landscape of The Burren and past the peat bogs of Connemara … go off the tourist map in the Aran Islands … and explore the historic city of Galway. Along the way, you’ll stay in charming, family-run inns and enjoy special events, such as a walk with a historian and an authentic pub lunch that put you in touch with the warmhearted locals who have the gift of making everyone’s eyes smile.
