The Wild Atlantic Way Tour

6 Hours 50 Km

The Wild Atlantic Way is a 2,500km touring route following the west coast of Ireland from Inishowen all the way to County Cork. We have put together a full day cycling tour along the Wild Atlantic Way as it passes through Inishowen taking in some of the finest scenery anywhere in Ireland. Our experienced and friendly guides bring the area to life with stories and local history as you make your way to Ireland’s most northerly point.

Malin to Malin Head and back

We’ll start the morning by meeting by the bridge in Malin – a quiet little village in the north of the peninsula. From here we take the beautiful and quiet coastal road, following Trawbreaga bay to Five Fingers Strand. The cycling is extremely flat in this section and so a great opportunity to warm up, before we meet the first ascent on the way up to Malin Head. The cycling can get a bit tough but there is no rush and the guide can give advice about gearing and technique for hill climbing. You are rewarded with exceptional views back on Inishowen and out to the Atlantic Ocean, with every twist in the road bringing a new vista. Our friendly guides will tell you about the area as we pass through it – and stops to enjoy the views and take photographs are highly encouraged! Our route passes country churches, farms with cattle and sheep, and breathtaking sea views throughout the day.

We generally stop for our lunch in the Seaview Tavern – a great gastro pub that specialises in seafood, and overlooks the pier where so much of their menu is sourced from! A lunch (value up to €10) is included here, but you are very welcome to supplement that yourselves and have a full dining experience. The pub is very close to the very top of Malin Head, and is in a beautiful location.

Depending on weather and the experience of the group we will adjust the length of this tour – there are different options of road that lead to Malin Head and the guide will recommend options based on what seems appropriate for everyone to return to Malin by 3pm.
Inclusions
Hire of one of our modern 24 speed hybrid bikes including helmet and comfort accessories, lunch and the services of one of our guides.
