Ireland is well known for its rolling green hills – so why not get out there and bike them? 

On this active trip to the Emerald Isle, you’ll find plenty of adrenaline-filled activities that will get you into remote parts of the country and let you see this popular destination in a different way. Of course, there will still be plenty of chances for whiskey tasting and a pint at the pub as well. Get to know Ireland’s rugged side up close and personal.

 

Itinerary

Day 1 Cork
Arrive at any time.

Day 2 Dingle
Heading out of Cork travel east to Midleton and pause to visit a whisky distillery. Enjoy a detailed explanation of Irish whiskey making and a quick sample of the "water of life". Continue on to Dingle and enjoy a free afternoon to stroll around this little town.

Day 3 Dingle
Out onto the hills today, walk through a remote valley following the Dingle peninsula north to south. The hike follows the "Way of the Cows" along an old droving path with ruined villages alongside. Finish up at the village of Annascaul, with time to stop and enjoy a quick pint in the South Pole Inn.

Day 4 Dingle
Cycle out to the westernmost point of Ireland. The route around Slea Head is rugged and stunning with views out over the sea. Continue to cycle through woodlands out to Slea Head. Take in the dramatic views en route to South Kerry and around the coast. Travel through fishing villages and finish at Dingle.

Day 5 Killarney
Seeing the landscape from the water provides a different perspective on Ireland's verdant beauty. Kayak along the three lakes of Killarney and through the Lake District. After crossing the lakes, there is time to explore Muckross House and it's surrounding gardens. Spend the night in Killarney.

Day 6 Killarney
Back on two feet today for a hike in Killarney National Park. The ancient oak woods here provide a suitable backdrop to the walk.
