Sunday 6 – Saturday 12 August 2023
Our view: Riding in Southern Ireland on great roads (& we’ll be honest – some bumpy ones!) with stunning scenery along the Wild Atlantic Way. Day’s off with optional ride-outs, staying in 3* & 4* hotels, this will certainly suit riders & pillions alike.
The Tour starts in Dublin and finishes in Rosslare. After checking into our 3* hotel in the early afternoon we then visit the Guinness Experience (entry included). Tonight is a free night to explore Dublin & the famous Temple Bar district full of bars & restuarants.
The next day we ride cross country to our 3* riverside hotel in Sligo which is located on the Atlantic Ocean & famous for shellfish. This is another free evening for you to explore the town.
On day three we ride South following the Wild Atlantic Way stopping to see the fabulous sea stack at DownPatrick Head before heading towards Galway where we stay at another 3* hotel for 2 nights. Dinner is included this evening.
The next day we offer an optional ride-out into the Connemara National Park passing peat bogs and more lovely scenery. Returning to our hotel the evening is at your leisure, there are restaurants nearby or alternatively Galway is a short taxi ride away.
On day five we visit the Cliffs Of Moher (entry included) then we ride round the Dingle Peninsular which includes the Conor Pass, stopping for photos at the highest point. Our 4* hotel tonight is in the centre of Killarney where you have a free night to enjoy live music in the many bars & restaurants.
The next day we ride to the famous Ring of Kerry then to the Ring of Beara including the Healy Pass. With photo opportunities, coffee & lunch stops en-route our next 3* hotel is close to Blarney Castle and dinner is included tonight.
On day seven we walk across to to visit Blarney Castle (entry included) and for those who need to get the gift of the gab you can kiss the Blarney Stone!! After coffee in the town where Moby Dick was filmed we head to Rosslare for the evening ferry to Fishguard.
This will be a fully guided motorcycle trip from the moment you arrive in Dublin. The routes have been researched to ensure that we always stop every hour and a half for coffee, lunch or fuel so riders – and pillions – will not be too long in the saddle. As we use our tried & tested “2nd man drop-off” marker system with a permanent tail-end rider there is no need for you to refer to road books, maps or GPS.
We stay in good 3* and 4* independent hotels, all with character, all with secure parking and all biker friendly.
