Tour description

A four centre, 5 nights and 4 days biking self-guide bike ride of the Dingle Peninsula and Coast in County Kerry, Ireland. Starting and finishing in Killarney. 5 nights bed and breakfast in en-suite guesthouse accommodation, transfer of luggage each day, hire of a hybrid touring bike and detailed notes and maps, Telephone back-up and emergency support throughout.
This Dingle Peninsula bike ride takes you through some outstanding scenery around the Ring of Dingle from Killarney. Within its small area, the Dingle Peninsula has more antiquities, historic sites and varied mountain scenery than any other part of Ireland. On this round trip, you pass through Anascaul, Inch and on to Dingle, the most westerly town in Europe. It is an excellent centre with many famous restaurants, traditional pubs and yet it still retains much of the old-world atmosphere of a fishing village. On the route back, you bike the northern side of the peninsula, passing over the Conor Pass with magnificent views of Tralee Bay and the Maharees and the many beautiful beaches which dot the coastline into Tralee. You finish back at Killarney. Dinners are not provided, the guesthouses will provide you with information on nearby pubs and restaurants.

You are free to choose your own routes, between the accommodation, but you have the service of a back up van (a phone call away) if things go wrong and to transfer your luggage. The average daily cycling distance is a comfortable 15 - 31 miles (24 - 50km). The tour starts and finishes in the beautiful town of Killarney, where we kit you out with your bike.

Richard - 
 
After stopping off in Wisconsin for a few days, we have now returned back to our home in Montana and begun settling in. I've finished cropping and editing all the pictures I took and they look great! We will review and remember our wonderful trip many times throughout the winter months and beyond. Fletchers should also be back home, and we'll get together this coming week to swap our stories of Reeth and the Cotswolds. 
 
Doug and I just want to thank you again for organizing such a terrific trip! Your thoughtful attention to details in routing and lodging, and your personal care was so very much appreciated. 
 
If ever we get the chance to return, or hear of anyone else planning such a trip, you can be assured that we will be contacting you. 
 
I hope your fall season is enjoyable. 
Thank you again. 
Warm regards, 
Mindy and Doug Ferrell
