This tour leads us through the vast and rocky lands of Connemara over the moors and mountains of Mayo and Donegal up to the scenic Fanad Head in the very North of Ireland. With a little loop through Northern Ireland we continue cruising inlands back to our tour base. You will experience about half of the famous Wild Atlantic Way on our jouney. Nature is stunning in the northern part of Ireland and traffic is very low - with the exception of sheep and cows on the roads....
Highlights of this tour:
The vibrant city of Galway
The medieval Abbey of Clonmacnoise, the scenic Kylemore Abbey and Aughnanure Castle
Slieve Leagues - the highest cliffs in Europe - even higher, than the well known Cliffs of Moher
The pretty little towns of Donegal and Westport
The impressive Glenveigh National Park
And many wonderful roads in phantastic landscapes…
The first day is the arrival day with individual flight to Dublin and transfer to the tour base. You will get your bikes with detailed instruction and test drive and will be equipped with navigation systems and panniers. The entire route is already pre-programmed on the navigation system. If you have booked the guided tour, you will meet your guide today. You will stay overnight in our guesthouse from where you will start your tour the next day.
After a strengthening breakfast the tour begins. From our guesthouse we head inland to the west via the villages of Carlow and Roscrea to Birr. Here the beautiful Birr Castle awaits you and there will be several possibilities for a lunch break. Continue on to the medieval monastery complex at Clonmacnoise, which lies picturesquely on a hill above the Shannon River. Today's overnight destination is the lively and colourful city of Galway. There are some typical Irish pubs and restaurants and a long beach promenade where you can enjoy the first evening of the tour to the full.
Galway is the gateway to Connemara, a rocky and wild region of Ireland. Today you leave the inland behind you and drive along the coast via Kilkieran until you reach the road and the Twelve Pines. A good photo stop for a breather. You now follow the lakes until you see the impressive Kylemore Abbey Monastery. Also a very nice photo motif. We continue to the Killary, the only fjord in Ireland. It cuts deeply into the landscape, lined with wild rhododendrons, which in bloom picturesquely underline the scenery. You meander further through the mountains, along the lakes, and arrive in Louisburgh. Following the coast you will reach Westport and your overnight stop for today.
On today's stage you will see typical Irish areas that only few tourists reach. Today you drive to Achill Island and enjoy the spectacular views on the road to Keem Bay. Back on the mainland, your route takes you north through Ballycroy National Park to the Ceide Fields. There is a View Point here, from where you will also have a beautiful view of the coast and the sea. In the big arch you will then return to Westport where you will stay overnight again.
From Westport today you will head north to Sligo, past Glencar Waterfall, which lies at the foot of Ben Bulben. A table mountain and the landmark of Sligos. You leave the town of Donegal behind you for the time being and continue on to Glencollumbkille. There is an open-air museum with historical history and a small café and it is worth taking a breather. On the way back you will pass the Sleave Leagues, which are one of the highest cliffs in the world. The view is spectacular and absolutely worth a visit. The town of Donegal, your overnight stop for today, has a pretty town centre and a nice harbour and you can end the day in one of the many restaurants and pubs.
Today you will take a drive through County Donegal. Via Ardara and Dungloe the journey goes to Burtonport. A small harbour village from where the islanders reach the mainland. Via Anagry and Gweedore you will reach Glenveigh National Park. The mountains become big and the landscape wide and beautiful. The drive to the Fanad Head Lighthouse - the highlight of this stage - is a dream. In a big curve we drive along the edge of Glenveigh National Park via Ballybofey back to Donegal.
Today is the last day of your journey, but still not less beautiful. Via Carrick on Shannon you go to Mullingar. A typical Irish town with colourful shops, pubs and restaurants where you are sure to find a delicious lunch. A little further on is the Belvedere House, which is also nice to look at, and the café next door is perfect for a coffee break. Via Kildare and Baltinglass we return to our guest house.
Transfer to Dublin. We recommend to spend another day in Dublin before you go home - the capital offers many sights and is absolutely worth a short stay.
