New for 2024, our Emerald Isle: Ireland tour starts and finishes in the UK and crams in most of Ireland in eight days.
EMERALD ISLE: IRELAND
You will get to ride the rugged coastline and detour to the most southerly point in Ireland, Mizen Head before a night in Bantry. Hemmed in by sea and mountains this West Cork town has its own climate and even palm trees! On our Ireland motorcycle tour, you will ride the famous Ring of Kerry taking in the untamed coastlines, the friendly towns and the rustic villages as you head for Killarney. From Killarney you ride the Dingle Peninsula heading for Ennis, the county town of Clare, with its charming old town centre criss crossed with narrow streets. En route you pass the South Pole! This famous pub was owned by Tom Crean the Irish Antarctic explorer who travelled with Scott.
Galway, a harbour city on Ireland’s west coast is our next destination. Sitting where the River Corrib meets the Atlantic Ocean the city’s hub is 18th-century Eyre Square, a popular meeting spot surrounded by shops and traditional pubs that often offer live Irish folk music. From Galway we leave the coast behind and head across the centre of Ireland to its heart. You have two nights in Dublin, which surely won’t be enough! The Temple Bar, Malahide Castle, Christ Church Cathedral with it’s 12c crypt and The Guinness Factory all await. We will enjoy a farewell dinner in the heart of the city an then its time to head for home.
With a week to explore this most welcoming nation, you’ll get to learn all about the ‘Old Country’, ride some of the most enchanting roads in Europe and enjoy more than a pint or two of the black stuff.
