Take your time to meander and dally, as you uncover three of Ireland’s most captivating counties on the world-famous coastal touring route.

There’s no need to rush on this two-week tour, encapsulating some of our favourite corners of Ireland’s northwest. Take in the colour of Connemara’s ‘capital’ while exploring the outer reaches of the Gaeltacht by eBike. Head north via the long way to Co Mayo and wonderful Westport in the shadow of Croagh Patrick – ‘Ireland’s holiest mountain’ – before strolling the strands of achingly beautiful Achill Island. Top off your tour by discovering wild Donegal and dipping your toe into Derry, including a boat trip amidst some of Europe’s highest sea-cliffs and a visit to the island’s northernmost extremity.

We’ve spent time uncovering hidden locations and seeking out the most appealing accommodation all along this lazy route, wrapped up with one or two special experiences to deliver a holiday you’ll never forget.
