The Nire Valley Drop is a sportive for mountain bikers. With a choice of either 25k or 45k routes, that it is a fantastic day out on a bike. The course provides plenty of manageable challenges and brings you into some of the most untouched, scenic parts of Ireland.

This event is growing in popularity and fame and if you are a mountain biker chances are you have heard of the Nire Valley Drop, but now is your chance to take part in this unique event. We have great before and after facilities, with parking, hot showers, refreshments, bike wash.

There is a hostel and plenty of bed & breakfasts in the area for those that wish to travel to the event. There are few places where you encounter nature in the raw. There are even fewer places where you and your bike can challenge nature knowing if you don't tame nature it will tame you.

In years to come when all is forgotten the whisper of the words "Nire Valley Drop" will get your adrenaline pumping as you smile and say "I was there too".
