Cycle through green landscapes


"Forty shades of green." That's how Johnny Cash described Ireland’s beautiful countryside. Marvel at the Emerald Isle’s green hues with your own eyes by renting a bike and cycling through its verdant landscapes. From small islands with crashing waves to silent mountain peaks, you won't be disappointed.

If you’re looking to get away for the day, ask your local agent for the best way to get to Inishbofin Island, six miles off the coast of Connemara. Admire the surroundings from your bike as you roam through pastures and pastel-colored beaches. Further north, Inishmore, the largest of the Aran Islands, is perfect for peaceful walks. Be sure to pause at the top of the cliffs and catch your breath as you take in the view.

The Mountains of Mourne in Northern Ireland are also a biker's paradise. Its gorgeous descents and panoramic views over Northern Ireland's highest mountains are sure to impress. Rest assured, in addition to equipment rentals, bike uplift services are available in Rostrevor.
