This Dingle Peninsula bike ride takes you through some outstanding scenery around the Ring of Dingle from Killarney. Within its small area, the Dingle Peninsula has more antiquities, historic sites and varied mountain scenery than any other part of Ireland. On this round trip, you pass through Anascaul, Inch and on to Dingle, the most westerly town in Europe. It is an excellent centre with many famous restaurants, traditional pubs and yet it still retains much of the old-world atmosphere of a fishing village. On the route back, you bike the northern side of the peninsula, passing over the Conor Pass with magnificent views of Tralee Bay and the Maharees and the many beautiful beaches which dot the coastline into Tralee. You finish back at Killarney. Dinners are not provided, the guesthouses will provide you with information on nearby pubs and restaurants.
You are free to choose your own routes, between the accommodation, but you have the service of a back up van (a phone call away) if things go wrong and to transfer your luggage. The average daily cycling distance is a comfortable 15 - 31 miles (24 - 50km). The tour starts and finishes in the beautiful town of Killarney, where we kit you out with your bike.
