Best of The West
Best of the West
Enjoy the very best the west of Ireland has to offer with our combined “Bike and Hike” tour. Breathe in the salty sea air as you cycle through some of the most spectacular scenery on the “Wild Atlantic Way”. Fill your lungs with the delicate floral perfumes of the Irish wildflowers as you cycle along a network of quiet bóithríns (country lanes). Then receive a foot massage from Mother Nature as you walk along one of the many secluded soft sandy beaches. Enjoy a total sense of freedom as you walk through a landscape steeped in 6,000 years of history.
Hiking to special places over the horizon, to experience amazing beauty that is the very soul of Ireland.
You will be based on the Wild Atlantic Way in the vibrant towns and villages of Ballina, Mulranny, and Achill Island.
