Explore all that is truly Eire—ancient Celtic ruins, pastures speckled with grazing sheep, and the timeless charm of traditional Irish pubs.

There is no better way to experience Ireland's rugged southwestern coast than by bike, and there is always something great to discover. The grandeur of Country Kerry will come alive, from the rugged beauty of the Wild Atlantic Way to the glacier-carved Glencar Valley to the peaks of the Macgillycuddy's Reeks mountain range. Have your camera ready for the unspoiled terrain of the Beara Peninsula, steeped in myths and legends and rich in archaeological history. Then, settle into the warmth of our outstanding accommodations, share in jovial banter over a pint, and absorb the underlying spirit of the enchanting Emerald Isle on your bicycle vacation of a lifetime.

Trip Wows
  • The wild, pale grey mountains and stunning patchwork of peat bogs provide a truly unique and breathtaking backdrop for cycling

  • Enjoy a fresh pint of Guinness or a glass of Irish Whiskey in the pub over some good stories with our local friends. They call this cherished part of culture the “craic”

  • The spectacular beauty of the Ring of Kerry also provides an amazing insight into the ancient heritage of Ireland

  • Learn the art of chocolate making at a private tour and tasting with chocolatier, Benoit Lorge

  • Explore Bantry Bay by boat with our local guide and perhaps catch a fish or two; and enjoy an entertaining and anecdotal historical walk with our favorite Kenmare local

What Guests are Saying

Guides were FANTASTIC. The trip itself was spectacular, one day better than the next. Irish Songs sung by our guide, talk on the history of the Republic and Northern Ireland, the history of Kenmare; made you understand how proud the people are of there country. The rides, the views, were all amazing. Would highly recommend this trip, and these guides made it very special.

This was my 20th trip with Trek Travel and it was one of the best! The scenery was breathtaking, the riding superb, and the meals exquisite. The 26 mile loop we did through the Gap of Dunloe was the most scenic, engaging, and enjoyable ride I have done in many years. I would love to do it again!

There are so many highlights on this trip it would be hard to choose one. The green of Ireland just seems to be greener than any other place on earth. The people of Ireland welcome visitors like they are long lost friends. Cycling the Ring of Kerry area gives you some of the best scenery and views in Ireland-climbing the Gap of Dunloe week in and week out was one of my favorite parts of the trips. I was always ready to resist the urge to eat too many chocolate while visiting Lorge Chocolatier – Handmade Chocolate, and I usually failed at that. Overall, it's hard to describe the feeling of connectedness to the earth and to history while you are in Ireland, but it is a feeling I would suggest you never miss experiencing.
