Wild Connemara By Bike

The Corrib River sweeps mightily past, rolling to the Atlantic, cheered on by the wails of seagulls overhead. A familiar sound in Galway City – as familiar as the sight of a hundred swans nestled at the entrance to the Claddagh Quay.

What a perfect place to begin your Ireland bike trip - the West. From here we steer toward Connemara, famous for its untamed, wild beauty. As we leave the city and greet the open loveliness of the landscape, the Twelve Bens rise to meet us, their quartzite peaks glistening in the midday sun.

We continue toward Clifden, drinking in the surroundings, mindful that we are spinning through one of the most magnificent stretches in all of Europe. A short detour takes us past the gated entrance to the Ballynahinch Castle estate. Fishing rods and Wellington boots are the uniform of the day, as guests and their ghillies head to the river beat.

A coastal spin to Roundstone village where the Galway Hooker boats set their red sails, billowing on the harbor’s horizon. An intoxicating sight, surpassed only by the extraordinary, white sandy beaches at Dogs Head and Gurteen Bay.
