Ireland is a great destination for cycling. The Irish roads are calling all you avid cyclists, with memorable trips in store for the energetic and physically active tourist who loves to travel the highways and byways by pedal power.
Once you remember to pack your rain gear, the Irish roads await to take you on your trails over hills and mountains, or along the Wild Atlantic Way to experience some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world.
Every year there seems to be huge numbers of new cyclists on Irish roads, and for anyone who ever thought about taking a biking trip to Ireland, I thought a little information about the different cycling routes might be a good idea.
Here’s an infographic, with excellent descriptions and stats for the best cycling routes in Ireland.
In my younger days I loved to cycle, and have fond memories of touring around Ireland. I loved flat, fast rolling back roads for a good spin, but always be prepared for a few hills in Ireland.
Happy trails to all who take to their bikes to explore the winding country roads, the hills and valleys, and the tiny villages and bustling towns of Ireland.
Enjoy the open air and the surrounding scenery – there’s no where on earth quite like Ireland on a bike.
