A unique part of Ireland hugging the coastline with a rocky limestone landscape, sprinkled with vibrantly coloured flowers.

Our tour start in the historical town of Ennis, renowned for its traditional music. We set off through rolling countryside on quiet backroads towards the Atlantic Ocean where we stay on its shores listening to the waves rolling in.

Each night we stay by the coast and every day our cycling is rewarded in some way. From the famous Cliffs of Moher (Europe's highest) to the wonderful freewheel into the village of Doolin (famous for its three pubs that compete to have the best music). Or the spectacular coastal ride from the matchmaking town of Lisdoonvarna to Ballyvaughan with the Burren on one side and views across to the Aran Islands, Galway Bay and Connemara beyond on the other.

We cycle deep into the heart of the Burren passing by its megalithic tombs and limestone plateaux on our way back to Ennis for a final night together.

Although the terrain is undulating,  the mileage is not too high and this would be one of our least challenging tours in Ireland. Also due to the myriad of backroads in this area,  the Clare tour is a great choice for making a bespoke tour to your exact needs,  making days shorter and easier is always an option.  

We offer an "easy" tour in the area,  which takes in an extra rest day and starts in Ennis and finishes in Galway. We offer a "family" tour which has reduced mileage each day. As well as this we  offer shorter tours in Clare.
