Enjoy a magical Guided Bike tour with us taking in the very best parts of both the Ring of Kerry, Dingle Peninsula & the rarely travelled Kerry head Peninsula. You will get to see what surely is the very best scenery in Ireland. Kerry has so much to offer you as an active traveller, from the raw views out into the deep Atlantic Ocean, the Blasket Sound and Slea Head to the magnificent rolling hills of agricultural land to the stunning scenery of The Skellig Ring and the Brida Valley. Kerry is a true gem of history, culture and unforgettable scenery. And all this while you stay in our handpicked accommodations with the opportunity to eat in the regions finest restaurants and enjoy music and dance in the region’s best pubs as the perfect end for a enjoyable day in the saddle.
For the duration of your Guided Bike Tour your guide will be on hand to support you and introduce you to stories of this land. Full van support is provided by the guide so you can choose to cut a day short if you wish and jump on board. No need to worry about heavy bike bags as all your luggage will be transferred between accommodations. To help you carry whatever you need on your daily journey we provide front handle bar bag and rear pannier bags. These are fully optional should you not want them. Bike bags are generally a lot more comfortable than back packs and your back will be less sweaty if you do use them. Each bike is equipped with a bottle cage you can keep hydrated on your journey!
