can look through our itinerary by clicking on the days below.
The 7 day tour basically runs from Saturday to Friday.
this point I think it might be helpful to outline the transfers
we provide pre and post tour. As the tour is exclusively based
in the West of Ireland it would make sense to fly directly to
flight scheduling may not always allow you to take a direct flight
to Shannon Airport so rest assured its not a big deal to fly into
Dublin airport and take a train to Limerick. If you fly into Dublin
airport, take the train from Hueston station in Dublin to Colbert
station in Limerick.
To reserve tickets online go to http://www.irishrail.ie/
Tickets reserved online work out much cheaper than purchasing
in the train station on the day. Tickets can only be purchased
within 28 days of journey date. I would recommend taking one of
the early afternoon trains as the later departing trains can be
very crowded as many people depart Dublin city for the weekend.
vast majority of our tour participants like to get to the start
location (Bunratty) the evening before the tour starts. To facilitate
this we will be available to run transfers on Friday from Shannon
airport or Limerick train station.
If you wish I can also reserve your accommodation for Friday in
The Courtyard, Bunratty. You will also stay there on the first
night of the tour so you enjoy a very civilized start to proceedings
on Saturday morning.
get some of the bike sizing and fitting sorted on Friday leaving
you with more time for cycling on the first day of your tour.
