Testimonials for Ireland by Bike Cycling Holidays

Cycling down Granny Valley, Ardara, County Donegal, Ireland, with Ireland by Bike.

Ray Friedman and Jen-Jen Lin

My wife and I loved our bike trip with Ireland by Bike. The routes Seamus designed are gorgeous – through open meadows, by oceans and inlets, and across mountain valleys. This is a truly stunning part of the world. What made it especially nice is that 80% of the roads had almost no traffic. We also loved the freedom of a self-guided tour. We started early some days, and after lunch on other days – whatever we felt like. We took more or fewer side trips, based on how energetic we felt. If we found an especially relaxing spot, we

Clara Ni

“This was my first time on a cycling vacation, and prior to training for this trip, I hadn’t been on a bike in close to 10 years. I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised by how smoothly everything went. I gave excellent marks for the value for the money because of how nice it was to have the entire trip essentially planned out for us. To not have to deal with the hassle of booking, logistics, and hauling around gear and luggage was wonderful. On the whole, I had a most amazing time, especially as we

Richard Johnson

“We really like Donegal County. Compared to the other places we went (Galway, Ring of Kerry, Dublin) it was much less crowded with tourists (ironic, coming from a tourist).” -Richard Johnson, Seattle, USA. Treasures of Coast and History. April 2018

John and Vickie Hornbeck

“This tour was perfect for exploring the Atlantic coast. The small towns and restaurants had the best seafood ever! Biking allowed us to meet and talk with many people who were unbelievably friendly. Seamus was delightful and even tracked us down the second day when it was extremely rainy and windy to make sure that we did not want a ride to the next B&B. We would highly recommend this trip to both experienced and relatively novice bike riders. John and Vickie Hornbeck, Oregon, U.S.A. (HIGHLIGHTS OF THE HIGHLANDS) June 2017

Marie-Ève Ouellette

“This trip is magical, one of my best so far! My expectations were pretty high and it was even better than anticipated. I felt safe on the road with the combination of small road + GPS + map + Odometer. The bike was in good shape and I felt reassured that if I needed support you would be there for us. I feel this was a very high quality tour, nothing cheap or cheesy about the choices you made for us. You must love what you do and it clearly shows. Thank you so much!” Marie-Ève Ouellette, Québec, Canada. (KNOCK

Cycling vacation in Donegal Ireland with Ireland by Bike

Dianne Dicks

“Mary and I have been on a number of bike trips in Germany, Italy, Spain and here at home all over in Switzerland but the trip you planned for us tops them all when it comes to discovering backroads and extraordinary landscapes, cozy and friendly accommodations and your personal care along our route. You obviously know the type of trails seasoned cyclists like and you chose the accommodation at B&Bs with friendly hosts we will never forget. It was my first trip to Ireland but it will not be the last. Many thanks to you and Nora for taking such

Fergus Mc Taggart

The route was certainly hilly but this reflected the tour description. For me (aged 69) the route was tough going. However, there were sufficient options to make the routes less or more demanding according to fitness. I very much enjoyed the trip and would be happy to recommend it. Fergus McTaggart, Cheshire, U.K. (NORTH WEST GRAND TOUR), July 2017

Gary and Lene Mohle

“Everything from booking over the internet to meeting Nora on the morning of our departure, we were very impressed with everything. Although it was biking a self guided tour, it was great knowing that Seamus and Nora would help out if needed, checking in with us at the end of the first day to make sure that everything was good. Would definitely recommend to friends or family. Well organized, well done. Thankyou !”  Gary and Lene Mohle, Ontario, Canada.  (HIGHLIGHTS OF THE HIGHLANDS, JUNE 2017.)

Cycling Holiday at Glenveagh

Derek and Cindy Olinger

“This was our first adventure vacation and I cannot imagine a better planned or better supported one. You did everything and more than what was advertised and we came away feeling it was worth every penny.  The personal service, attention to detail, and willingness to help every customer is clear, excellent, and appreciated. We enjoyed meeting the other customers at the B&B’s or on the road, noting that they were all equally impressed with the experience.” Derek and Cindy Olinger, Florida USA (HIGHLIGHTS OF THE HIGHLANDS) May 2017
