Left-side traffic, mostly calm, but can be more lively around Galway and Killarney and some touristic hotspots. Irish country roads can be very narrow with views on bends obstructed by hedges and tarmac being in questionable condition, but you can always ride slowly, hence safely. 260 km of riding take most of the day in Ireland. This format is very suitable for riders who like riding most of the day with some opportinities for sightseeing.   

Arrival: Individual flight to Dublin, bus transfer to Gorey and we pick you up and drive to our tourbase, where you receive your rental motorcycle and start on your tour. 

Option: You can combine this format with  Bed&Bike - tours from our guesthouse. For example, get used to left-side-driving for 3 days on daytours from our guesthouse, then depart for your roundtour.

Map of Wild Atlantic Way roundtour

The Wild Atlantic Way is the longest coastal road in Europe, spanning over 2500 km from the northern tip of Ireland, along the Westcoast to Kinsale near Cork in the South. Actually it consists of many connected roads, which are often, but not always, along the shore. When it leaves the Atlantic Ocean, it curves inlands into the mountains, moors, vast areas and farmlands. The scenery is manyfold and often breathtaking and you will have the opportunity to see many highlights of Irelands rich heritage. On this tour you should feel comfortable with longer days in the saddle. For those who are, this is a very impressive and rewarding tour! 


Your riding days:

1. Day: Individual arrival at Dublin, transfer to our tourbase where you receive your rental motorcycle with a thorough introduction and start your tour.  Ride to Kilkenny, where you will stay for the first night. Visit the pretty town af Kilkenny and it`s impressive castle today or tomorrow.

2. Day: Visit Kilkenny, if you did not have the time yesterday. Drive to Cahir and visit the stunninc norman castle or at least have a nice walk around it and enjoy the park and setting. Enjoy a little coffee break and continue to Blarney.

3. Day: Visit Blarney Castle and enjoy the most beautiful garden and park around it. Ride to the cost: Beara Pensinsula is amazing by motorcycle. Enjoy the beautiful coastlines and ride over the stunning Healy Pass. You will spend the next two nights in Killarney.

4. Day: You can leave your luggage on the room, while visiting Killarney with a number of attractions, or ride the ring of Kerry and some of the amazing mountains of the Killarney National Park.

5. Day: After all the cliffs, you now head to the beach: At the long and sandy Inch Beach you can enjoy a coffee, while watching the surfers in the waves. The drive around Dingle Peninsula offers beautiful views, especially the Slea Head Drive at the westernmost part of the peninsula. On Conor Pass, you can have amazing views with the ocean before and behind you at the same time.

6. Day: A small ferry will help you cross the River Shannon and soon after you will be back to the coast and the Wild Atlantic Way. The Cliffs of Moher are very much visited by tourists, but nevertheless very worthwhile a visit. Along the barren landscape of the Burren, you will head to the vibrant city of Galway, where you will stay for the night. 

7. Day: Today you will follow Connemaras rugged coastline into the moors and mountains of Mayo, which look like a smaller version of the Scottish Highlands. You will see the only fjord in Ireland, Killary Fjord, and pass by Croagh Patrick, Irelands holy mountain, to Westport. 

8. Day: Due to it`s remote location, Achill island is often overlooked by tourists, which makes it a must-ride location for motorcycists. In Ballycroy National Park, you will get a glimpse on how remote rural places in Ireland can be. Ceide Field is a nice stop and important historic site, where early settlements, from times well even before the celtic tribes, have been found. High cliffs make for a scenic location and the small museum with little café inside invites to a lunch break. You continue via Sligo and Glencar Waterfall to Donegal, where you will stay for two nights.

9. Day: You can leave your luggage on the room and visit the cliffs of Slieve Leagues. They are even higher than the Cliffs of Moher and rank among the highest cliffs in Europe. Glencolumbcille is a pretty village in a most stunning location between high cliffs and the backcountry mountains. The very pretty little museum-village displays irish rural life over the centuries and is very worthwhile to visit. From the coast you will ride a long slope through the scenic mountains of the Glenveagh National Park and back to Donegal.

10. Day: You will follow the River Shannon for another while before returning to our tourbase.
