Continuing our popular ‘End to End’ theme, this superb cycling holiday takes you just over 400 miles the length of Ireland from Mizen Head in the south to Malin Head in the North. Shorter and slightly easier than the French and UK ‘End to End’ holidays this tour offers some excellent cycling through the delightful Irish countryside.
The trip starts at Cork from where we transfer you to Mizen Head to begin the cycling. The route takes you along the coast of Bantry Bay and through the hills of Kerry. We continue around the mouth of the River Shannon, crossing the river to continue north past the Cliffs of Moher and across the limestone plateau known as ‘The Burren’. From here we turn inland to continue through lovely quiet countryside of remote lakes and rivers.
The route takes you briefly across the border into Northern Ireland, passing around Lough Melvin and the head of Lower Lough Erne, before crossing back into the Republic of Ireland to the attractive little town of Donegal. You then continue across the Blue Stack Mountains, on to the Inishowen Peninsula, and across open moorland to Malin Head, the most northerly point on Ireland. The following day we transport you to Londonderry or Belfast to return home.
Accommodation on this trip is in small hotels or guest houses.
