Enjoy a bike tour where you visit many of the best known landmarks on the island of Ireland. This tour follows the North Coast with ever changing and dramatic coastal views. Start your journey in historic Derry City. Along the way you stay in pretty towns and villages. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to stroll or swim at one of the many sandy beaches. Visit Bushmills and sample the whiskey from the world’s oldest distillery. If you are a Game of Thrones fan, this cycling holiday will take you to many of its iconic filming locations.
On this self-guided bike tour we use small family run bed and breakfasts and guest houses, apart from Derry where you stay in a small hotel. We have chosen the accommodation carefully to best suit the needs of the cyclist. The locations are in pretty towns and villages. We have chosen locations close to the village centres where you can comfortably walk to local restaurants and pubs.
Choose a single, double (one double bed) or twin (two single beds) room. Rooms have their own private bathroom.
We choose locations as close as possible to the village or town centre, so that you will be able to stroll out in the evenings to have a meal and then afterwards you can check out the local entertainment!

“We were pleased beyond words with the two tours (Yeats Country & Lakelands and The Causeway Coast) we took in August, 2019 with Ireland by Bike. The owners have planned extraordinarily beautiful routes through Northwest and Northern Ireland, chosen charming B&B’s, supplied near flawless cue sheets/maps paired with a GPS unit, and provided exceptional in-person and phone-call service. The scenery on The Causeway Coast tour was absolutely stunning with dramatic cliffs meeting the sea, lush farmland with roller coaster hills, and deep green glens. Seamus and Nora, your cycling tours top our list of favorites!”
