"Guinness" is the most common answer when men are asked what spontaneously occurs to them about Ireland. The proverbial "green island" has much more to offer than beer and dairy products!

Ireland offers, apart from countless historical sights and the beautiful nature, for motorcyclists also beautiful winding roads, of which the Ring of Kerry is certainly the most famous, but by far not the only one. Especially in the Wicklow Mountains and on the peninsulas in the west (Mizen, Beara, Iveragh and Dingle) bikers will find almost everything that makes a touring biker's heart beat faster.
Exactly in these areas we want to take you away and show you the beauty of Ireland on narrow, winding and lonely roads! Of course we will also visit some sights along the way, such as the impressive Rock of Cashel. And in the evening you will surely have the opportunity to discover that "Guinness" tastes even better in a typical Irish pub with live music than in Germany.
Motorcycle tours through Ireland are, just like those through Scotland, something very special. You have to get involved with the country, the people and the culture, which of course requires some time. This is the reason why we, unlike most other organisers, do not just "take Ireland along", but concentrate on the most beautiful corners of the Emerald Isle and explore them extensively.
Day 1: Arrival in Rotterdam to the ferry.
Individual or joint journey from the service station Geismühle Ost (A57 ) to our ferry connection from Rotterdam to Hull. As this is a night ferry, we arrive the next morning rested in the north-east of England.
Day 2: Across the north of England and by ferry to Ireland.
As the ferry from England to Ireland gives us the schedule, we travel from Hull via highways and motorways to the ferry port of Holyhead, from where we transfer to Dublin, the capital of the Republic of Ireland. We spend our first night in Ireland at the Maldron Smithfield Hotel in Dublin.
Day 3: Wicklow Mountains and Rock of Cashel.
Today we ride through the Wicklow Mountains where we visit the ruins of Glendalough. Afterwards we go to the symbol of Ireland, the Rock of Cashel. We will spend the night in the ****Hotel Baileysin Cashel.
Day 4: To the base hotel on the Ring of Kerry.
Today's leg takes us over the Knockmealdown Mountains, along the south coast of Ireland and with a stopover at Drumbeg Stone Circle, to the Hotel Kenmare Bay. We will spend four nights in our base hotel.
Day 5: Over the Beara Peninsula.
Today we ride across the mountains of the Iveragh Peninsula to Kenmare and from there a round trip across the beautiful Baeara Peninsula.
Day 6: Shehy Mountains & Ring of Kerry
Passing Ireland's highest pub, the tour takes you over the Shehy Mountains and then around the Iveragh Peninsula on the world famous Ring of Kerry.
Day 7: Ring of Dingle.
Less known but therefore not less interesting is the ride over the Ring of Dingle, which we will do today.
Day 8: To the Cliffs of Moher and through the Burren.
We leave our base hotel in Kenmare and ride through County Kerry and Clare to the famous Cliffs of Moher and on through the Burren to our overnight stop at the ****Hotel The Meadow Court.
Day 9: Across Ireland to Dublin.
After a visit to the ruins of the Clonmacnoise monastery we ride across Ireland back to Dublin. Here we will spend the afternoon visiting the Guinness Storehouse.
Day 10: Tour of Dublin and ferry crossing to the North of England.
As our ferry to Holyhead does not leave until the afternoon, we have time in the morning for a short tour of Dublin. After the crossing to Holyhead we ride through Snowdonia National Park to our last stop-over hotel.
Day 11: Across the north of England to Hull to the ferry.
As our ferry in Hull does not set sail until 20:30, we take a little more time on the way back across the North of England, ride only a short distance on the motorway, and take some beautiful landscapes and sights along the way.
Day 11: Journey home.
Joint or individual return journey to Krefeld or home.
