Self-guided cycle tour Irish Lakelands

Yeats Country and Lakelands

Experience first hand what inspired Yeats to write such beautiful poetry. 

If you were to pick one area in Ireland that is ready-made for the perfect cycling holiday, it would be hard to find better than the area around Sligo and the Northern Ireland border.  With quiet roads, beautiful unspoilt countryside and unforgettable hospitality, this is an area that is perfect for exploring by bike.  You follow the coast from Sligo to the beautiful villages of Mullaghmore and Ballyshannon, before taking a loop through the peaceful lakelands that straddle the border with Northern Ireland.  On your way back to Sligo you cycle through the stunning Glencar Valley.

If you would like to spend more time exploring this undiscovered corner of Ireland, we offer a 12 day version of this tour.  For those of you looking for something a bit more challenging, we also have an option of a 6 day moderate tour.

It’s time to embark on a journey of discovery in this hidden corner of Ireland.
