Welcome to Cycle Holidays Ireland, the local Irish bike tour operator along the Wild Atlantic Way on the West Coast of Ireland

Our tour is all about cycling along the quiet laneways and Atlantic coastline of Western Ireland. Every aspect of our bike tour has been meticulously built and perfected over the past 18 years. Our support will afford you all the opportunity to explore the villages and countryside at your own pace. Our tour attracts folks who want to stop off take photos and chat with locals they meet along the way. Because of our ability to transfer the entire group you will get to explore vastly different regions including Connemara National Park, Burren National Park the Aran Islands, Cliffs of Moher as well as much of the Wild Atlantic Way. I almost forgot to mention the important thing, there will be Guinness. Our unique support system facilitates seasoned bikers as well as the novice.

Irish culture still flourishes in these regions. The ancient native Irish language (Gaelic) is still spoken by locals going about their daily business. We will teach you some Gaelic throughout the tour. Enjoy traditional Irish music sessions in the pubs after cycling through picture postcard countryside. The small villages and towns you will visit during the tour encompass the true Irish spirit.


This is a family owned and operated tour. The tour has been built on success with many customers returning with family and friends. All of our tours for 2019 are guaranteed to run thanks to the number of customers already signed up. This means we have the wherewithal to provide the best equipment eg. Specialized Sirrus Comp bikes with lightweight E5 alloy frames and carbon forks, very competitive prices and no danger of cancelled dates due to low participation. Just like any owner operated business the tour benefits greatly from the constant presence of the person with ultimate responsibility.

Our local knowledge, experience and superior level of support provided sets us apart from other tours. Cell phones are provided to cyclists allowing a high degree of individual independence while remaining safe in the knowledge that support is ever present. This means your not tied to the group during the daily ride. We encourage the group to spread out and do their own thing.

Two support buses and a motorcycle comb the daily route offering transfers over any hilly sections you decide not to cycle. Take as many transfers as you wish tailoring the daily route to your ability. Think of the support busses as ski lifts. Utilizing the transfer system allows us to open up stunning coastal areas that were once the preserve of only the most advanced cyclist. This is the only tour in Ireland supported with two busses and a motorcycle. We provide route maps and more importantly route profiles. We alert you to historical sites you will encounter at different points along the route. You then take all this information and tailor the following days ride to your own liking.

Looking forward to guiding you through my part of Ireland next Summer,

John Heagney.
