North West Grand Tour

8 Days Mod-Advanced 546 KmAVG 78 Km

From the Yeats Country around Sligo Town to the rugged Highlands of Donegal, Ireland’s North West is a perfect area for Ireland cycling tours. In this tour, Ireland reveals its wonderful landscapes at their best. Cycle through verdant valleys. Slip off your shoes for an invigorating foot massage – courtesy of the fine sand and crystal clear water at one of the many beautiful beaches! Cycle through wide open expanses of quiet and peaceful bog lands. Breathe the sea air at the top of vertigo inducing cliffs. Stop in welcoming little villages and savoir the laid-back atmosphere and the warm local hospitality. Hear the vibrant traditional music for which the area is famous. Travel through time as you discover stone age, bronze age and Celtic tombs and forts.

This, the most challenging of our Ireland cycling tours, starts in the “Yeats Country” in Sligo Town. From here you wind your way north, sometimes along the coast, sometimes inland. You complete a circle of the Donegal coast and highlands, before finishing in Donegal Town.

If you are inspired by wonderful landscapes, and love to get off the beaten track then this is one of the best cycling tours you will ever experience. On most days you cycle between 80 and 90 km (50 – 60, miles) making this bike tour ideal for the cycling enthusiast.
