Ireland

Specialitytourism Ireland

What makes cycling in Ireland so different? Perhaps the landscapes: roads off the usual tourist routes, steep hills and valleys contribute to the island’s varied terrain. Or it could be its size: because the island is so small, you can go from a rust-colored peat bog to a white sandy beach in no time.

Glide along Dublin‘s urban landscapes, traverse the plains ofIreland’s Hidden Heartlands or, if you’re feeling in the mood for a challenge, venture up Mourne Mountain or Connemara’s Twelve Bens for steeper trails. Whatever kind of cycling you want to do, you will find the perfect route here.

The entire island is crisscrossed by numerous greenways, designed especially for cyclists, in some of the most scenic landscapes there are. Discover the Great Western Greenway, which runs from the town of Westport to Achill Island, or the Waterford Greenway, which connects Dungarvan and the town of Waterford.

If you want to get off the beaten track, meet the locals as you pass through small villages and bustling towns, and get in touch with nature, a cycling vacation in Ireland is perfect for you.
