Itinerary

You can look through our itinerary by clicking on the days below. The 7 day tour basically runs from Saturday to Friday.

At 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 Shannon Airport.

However, 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.

The 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.

I'll 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.
