Cycling in Ireland

Kenmare, County Kerry

Ireland's varied landscape makes the island an ideal cycling destination. Here's how to get the most of its gorgeous scenery and fantastic cycling trails

If you’re looking for a way to explore miles of Ireland’s beautiful landscapes, breathing in that fresh, crisp air, not to mention having all the time in the world to stop and smell the heather, then you should definitely consider hopping on a bike on your trip!

Take a guided tour along the Wild Atlantic Way with your baggage transferred each time you change location; self tour Ireland’s Ancient East on a bike rental picked up in its towns and villages; pedal the same roads as the pros did during the Giro d’Italia Big Start in Northern Ireland; or make the most of the cities’ bike schemes to get you going on your two-wheeled adventure. With spectacular cycling routes to suit any level – from casual sightseer or intrepid road racer to mountain biking enthusiast – just strap on your panniers, put on your helmet and let’s cycle.
