Due to the incredible popularity of Connemara as a cycling destination, we have two tours running in this beautiful part of the country. The other tour in this area is Connemara, Galway & Mayo
On the Connemara - Best of the West trip we take in some of the best that Connemara has to offer including Killary Harbour and the stunning Delphi Valley and the beautiful town of Westport. However we head north into Mayo and cycle along the lovely Greenways Cycle towards the island of Achill. We have a chance to explore Achill with its stunning beaches before finishing up our tour cycling on quiet backroads to the Museum of Country Life near Castlebar. A transfer at the end of the week brings us back to the start point, the city of Galway.
This is an easier cycle, there is one day of climbing on our Connemara, Galway & Mayo tour which is not on this tour. Also mileage on this tour is a little lower which makes it a more suitable cycle for younger legs. There are also options to take a break from cycling on a number of days, for example we arrive early in Leenane and you have the choice of relaxing in the hotel spa or you can keep cycling on some fantastic routes.
Terrain: This tour does not involve any major climbs and it is a good option for those looking to take it a bit easier.
