Hello Everyone. My wife and I are beginning to look at possibly taking a tour around Ireland in a few years. Have any of you any suggestions regarding roads, places, etc. you think would be great to see? Would appreciate any input anyone would like to offer.
Hopefully another biker will answer this in a bit more detail than I can, but I can help on a few things. Ireland is small. Very small. A good days ride will go from the top to the bottom, or from one side to the other AND back again.
Also, depending on the time of the year you come, if it's off peak you can get accomadation in just about any town quite easily without pre-booking. This means you can travel with a very flexible schedule. We use a lot of Bed and Breakfasts, and these are rooms in peoples houses, or even larger spots with 5 or 6 bedrooms to rent. They usually will have a driveway to park a bike. unlike the USA (Moab to be specific), Irish bend and breakfasts are not boutique expensive and plush places to stay, they are more basic - very much how normal people live. Hostels are fine too but can be noisy.
Routes: The best things to see are all round the coast. Some things are the big attractions, like the cliffs of mohar Tourist Attraction in Ireland, Things to Do in Ireland - Cliffs of Moher, or the giants causeway, and these can be seen easily by just riding up to them. A full loop of the coast is a good plan to start from, and then refine it depending on how much time you have. 2 weeks would probably do a lap at a reasonable pace and getting to see a good few things, 3 weeks would be better. Any less than 2 weeks, then just concentrate on counties kerry, clare, galway (i.e. the west coast).
And a great thing to include is the hubb meeting in eniskillen, held each year. You can find details here on the hubb, and if you put that into the start of your trip you'll get loads of bang-up-to-date info when your there.
Also, what sort of stuff do you like to see? cities? Countryside? bit of a mix? And how long do you plan to travel for?
Depending on when you go, and when I get back from South America, I can offer you somewhere to stay just outside Dublin.
Have fun with your trip preperations. I will be going to Ireland for about 3 weeks in June next year. I will not be on the bike as I will be travelling with my parents. We will be attending a family gathering in Kerry.
I am planning a trip on the bike in 2017 (when I can get long service leave) and am hoping to do about 7 months in UK & Ireland.
Thanks for your replies. We're just staring to plan the trip. Will likely be in Ireland for two weeks. Looking for great roads to ride on, great people to meet, the usuual things. Will keep in touch with you as we plan.
I live in Ireland and would recommend anywhere along the West or South coast from Donegal to West Cork. Places you must see Delphi Valley, Conemara, the Burren, Dingel, Ring of Kerry and West Cork. The Antrim coast and Glens are beautiful also. We've had a very wet summer and it can rain a fair bit here , but don't let that put you off.
