Day 1: Meet and greet at our Hotel in Dublin

It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for – the epic meet-and-greet with our travel crew for the next 14 days! You can either recharge after your long flight at the hotel or grab the bull by the horns and explore the gorgeous city of Dublin. And if you’re feeling extra thirsty, why not settle into a cosy pub with locals and sip on the finest Guinness. The choice is yours!

Day 2: Transfer to Limerick

Today, we have the luxury of taking things slow and embracing the Irish way of life. To start, indulge in a traditional Irish breakfast before we embark on a two-hour transfer to Limerick. You’ll see castles, hills, and views that could rival your wildest dreams. It’s the perfect appetiser for the next 13 days of pure biking bliss!

Day 3: Limerick to Galway

This will be a big first day so hopefully we do not get too carried away in the excitement and folk music at the local pub. We rise at dawn and take an early morning walk around the medieval town centre of Limerick. After a traditional Irish breakfast we head over to the motorcycles and start the adventure. Always heading west out toward the brooding Atlantic Ocean. Following the River Shannon as she makes her way into the ocean at Kilkee for a stretch and cuppa. We then make our way north to the haunting Cliffs of Moher and Hags Head. From the Cliffs of More we then head to Doolin for lunch. Some say it is the prettiest village in Ireland, famous for folk music, historical sites and proximity to the Aran Islands. After lunch it is further north to The Burren – then on to Galway to experience this ancient city of the west’s delights and perhaps take a scenic helicopter ride to watch the sunset over the Aran Islands. More on Galway here! Galway has a bohemian flavour that is typical of the west of Ireland psyche: laid back, relaxed and ready for a party. We will all feel right at home staying here for the evening!

Day 4: Galway to Sligo – 350kms

Today is an incredible ride along the west coast, be prepared for rugged mountains & ancient castles. We’ll ride along the cusp of Connemara National Park, which spans 2,000 hectares of scenic countryside. The park’s Twelve Bens mountain range is a standout feature, with remnants of a great mountain belt that can be traced all the way from eastern USA! We’ll then hit up the charming town of Clifden for a hearty lunch, all while taking in the stunning coastal views.

Along the way, we’ll stop in charming coastal villages, park near thousands of year-old castles and make our way up north to Ballycastle, the northeasternmost coastal tip of Ireland. After soaking in the sights, we’ll head to Sligo for the evening. This northern Irish town straddles the Garavogue River where it meets Sligo Bay. Take a stroll into town for a classic pub meal or explore the medieval ruins, including carved tombs and a 15th-century altar. If you’re interested in local history, the Sligo County Museum is not to be missed, featuring memorabilia of local poet W.B. Yeats, paintings, and stone age artefacts.

Day 5: Sligo to Malin Well

Today’s adventure takes us further north along the breathtaking Wild Atlantic Way, one of the world’s longest coastal routes. As we delve deeper into Donegal, Ireland’s largest county, we’ll be greeted by a multitude of attractions, including ancient forts, high coastal peaks, and other landmarks that tell the story of Ireland’s rich and complex history.

Riding along the coast, you’ll experience a sense of isolation that has helped preserve age-old traditions and the Irish language. For lunch we’ll stop in the ‘Walled City’, Derry. Derry is not only rich in history yet this is the only remaining completely walled city in Ireland. Here you can really witness the long history of tension and violence during the ‘troubles’ period of Irish history.

Continuing along the rocky coast, we’ll reach the Inishowen Peninsula and ride along the famous Inishowen 100 route (it’ll blow your mind). The winding roads along the coastline and mountain peaks are some of the best around, and the route passes many of Donegal’s most famous attractions, such as the Mamore Gap. You’ll be grinning from ear to ear!

In the afternoon, we’ll reach Malin Well, where we’ll explore natural and built heritage sites, including a holy well, a promontory fort, and a hermit’s cave known as the “Wee House of Malin.” Don’t forget to look out for the strange rock formations along the shore as we ride along!

After a huge day of adventuring we’ll arrive at our hotel in Ballyliffin, where you can unwind in the hotel spa and sauna. Maybe even treat yourself to a massage in Donegal’s most popular spa hotels.

Day 6: Malin Well to Belfast

After a tranquil sleep at the Ballyliffin Lodge we’ll rise to the smell of clean air and ocean mist, and set out on our journey to Belfast. We’ll enjoy the last moments of the Inishowen 100 route and travel around the coast through the “Binevenagh Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty”… Yes, it’s outstanding and it’s beautiful! We’ll stop for a cuppa at the Gortmore viewpoint where there are spectacular panoramic views of Magilligan and Inishowen, Islay and Jura in Scotland, and Mussenden Temple and Martello Tower in the distance.

We’ll then head along the Antrim coast, and follow the legendary footsteps towards the ‘Giants Causeway’.  This dramatic sight has inspired legends of giants striding over the sea to Scotland.

As we continue along the coast we stop by, yes another… “Outstanding Natural Beauty” The Antrim Coast and Glens Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty yet this one is a lot different to the Binevenagh area. It includes Rathlin Island, the Glens of Antrim and the coastal area between Larne and Ballycastle, where we will stop for lunch. There is no doubt this area contains some of the most beautiful and varied scenery in Northern Ireland. You will ride through stone arched tunnels with an ocean vista and greenery growing all around it, this section really is an incredible part of the ride!

After immersing ourselves in nature’s beauty, we’ll head to Belfast, the birthplace of the world-renowned ‘Titanic,’ where we’ll stay for two nights.

Day 7: Belfast (Rest Day)

Wake up in the picturesque city of Belfast and take a moment to unwind, or start your day early and get lost in the city’s charm. With an array of activities to partake in, we suggest visiting the Titanic Museum, touring the iconic ‘City Hall’, and exploring the local markets. Immerse yourself in the rich history of Belfast and its people.

When the sun sets, we recommend making your way to the Crown Bar – the most famous saloon in Belfast, dates back to 1880 and once one of the iconic Victorian Gin Palaces in the city.. Sip on a few glasses of Guinness, tap your foot to traditional Irish music, and before you know it, you’ll have made a hundred new friends. Belfast is one of the friendliest places around… so who knows where the night will take you.

Day 8: Belfast to Wicklow

After a rest day in Belfast (or maybe not very restful depending on what you got up to), we jump back on the bikes and head south towards southern ireland! We’ll journey inland for a little change of scenery, along the mountain range of The Sally Gap. This route is truly amazing, The road (known as Old Military Road) was built shortly after the Irish Rebellion (1798). The road was constructed by the British Army who wanted to drive Irish rebel forces from the area. The scenery that you’re treated to from your seat as you twist and turn along the road that climbs up to Lough Tay. You may even recognise this area as the film location of movies such as Braveheart, Excalibur, PS, I Love you and the TV series Vikings.

We’ll stop in the charming village of Glendalough for lunch at the cosy Wicklow Heather. Before entering Wicklow, we’ll continue to cruise through the Wicklow Mountains National park and stop by Ireland’s biggest waterfall, the Powerscourt waterfall. This is a 398-ft. waterfall in the mountain’s foothill, with ancient trees, sika deer & rich birdlife.

We’ll arrive in the Northern region of Wicklow by the afternoon, named the ‘Garden of Ireland’ and check into our seafront lodge in Bray. Bray is a very funky town with elegant terraces, quirky shops and cool cafes.

Day 9: Wicklow to Kilkenny

Start your day with a calming stroll along the seafront of Bray. The day’s journey is not too strenuous but is packed with stunning views of Ireland’s countryside. As we head west, the Wicklow Mountains offer a rich variety of landscapes. The scenery changes from lush green pastures with gentle valleys to the dramatic and awe-inspiring ancient glacial valleys of the Wicklow Gap.

Our destination is the charming medieval town of Kilkenny. We arrive in the early afternoon with plenty of time to explore the city. Kilkenny is renowned for its landmarks, including the 12th-century Kilkenny Castle. Take a step back in time and experience “Ireland’s Medieval Mile,” a discovery trail that winds through the city. There are many stories to uncover in Kilkenny, so we recommend booking a local walking or cycling tour to hear about the county’s vibrant heritage and history.

Kilkenny City is a perfect blend of modern and medieval, a cultural treasure with 12th-century wonders mixed with exciting art galleries, award-winning eateries, independent boutiques, and a rich art culture.

Day 10: Kilkenny to Cork

Kicking off the day with an exciting detour, to Jerpoint Park which hosts a Monument of notable importance: The Lost Town of Newtown Jerpoint. Here you have the option to go on a guided tour of the lost city and take a step back in time.

We’ll continue south, stopping in the seaside town of Tramore for lunch and follow the south coast road stopping in a quaint village like Dungarvan. We’ll leave the coastal views and head inland following the path of the majestic River Blackwater, one of the longest rivers in Ireland. As we travel down south to Cork through Fermoy, In archaeological terms, this is one of the most interesting spots in Ireland, with many centuries-old castles, round towers, and other historic structures.

Our day will end in the charming city of Cork, where you’ll have plenty of time to explore. For a unique experience, climb to the top of St. Anne’s Church and ring the 18th century Shandon Bells.

These mountains stretch all the way down to the Lakes of Killarney, with the park covering everything from peaks and valleys to isles and plains, and even spilling into the outskirts of Killarney town.

After lunch in Killarney, we will continue along the Ring of Kerry, one of the most scenic routes in Ireland. Its rugged coastlines, rolling countryside, and beautiful scenery have made it recognizable all over the world. Be sure to check out the video of the dramatic landscapes!

We’ll pause at the stunning Rossbeigh Beach for a refreshing dip in the Atlantic (if you’re brave enough), and you’ll even have the option to hop on a boat to the epic Skellig Islands, where ‘Star Wars’ was filmed.

We’ll call it a night in the quaint port town of Dingle, which was once a major trading hub in the 16th century. Fish and hides were sent out, and wine was shipped in. You can cosy up with a good drink from the local distillery or take a stroll around the charming town.

Nevermind Adventure Tours Ireland

Wild, rugged, magical and mythical. Ancient land of kings and gods, fairies, incredible hospitality and of course – intoxication.

In ancient Ireland the pagan inhabitants believed that this land was inhabited by invisible spirits, faeries, demons and goblins. They believed that everything had a meaning and these deities would surround us and meddle in our affairs and that these were indeed our ancestors, past, present and future. Many still believe that these magical elven beings still roam this dream world today interfering in the affairs of men and women hindering some and helping others and generally providing entertainment for themselves. Who knows if this is true but I sure do hope so..

We meet at our hotel in Dublin on the 16th May. From here we transfer to Limerick and collect our bikes to start the ride. From Limerick we hug the amazing and rugged Atlantic coastline. Heading always north via Galway, Malin Beg, Derry and Belfast; and stopping at some incredibly funky locations along the way. Of course there will be the famous brewery tours, distilleries and the oldest pub in Ireland at over 1000 years old!
We then head south along the east-coast taking some surprise inland detours; all the way down to the southern coast, Kilkenny, Cork and the Dingle peninsula. Finally we will arrive back in Dublin on the 28th May and part ways.
