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 in this traffic. 250km of riding take most of the day in Ireland, but on this tour the distances are slightly shorter, which leaves you with plenty of time for sightseeing.  If you like to visit less and ride more, feel free to prolong every days trip by yourself. This format is very suitable for riders and riders with pillion assenger, who have a bit of motorcycling experience and like riding a good part of the day.

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.
