Both counties boast grand stretches of golden sands and legendary breaks that lure surfers from around the globe. But there is also an improbably bounty of prehistoric sites, elegant Georgian towns, little fishing villages and good old-fashioned warm-hearted country hospitality.
This bicycle tour is the ideal tour to let you explore the undiscovered parts of the Wild Atlantic Way, the counties of Mayo and Sligo on the West coast of Ireland. Despite their natural wonders and languid charm these two counties remain a well-kept secret, offering all of Ireland’s wild, romantic beauty but without the crowds. Mayo is the more rugged of the two, with scraggy peaks, sheer cliffs, heather covered moors and beautiful offshore islands. Sligo is more pastoral and its lush fields, fish-filled lakes and flat-topped mountains inspired William Butler Yeates to compose some of Ireland’s most ardent verse.
