Ireland

Returning to Ireland summer of 2020 or 2021 to enjoy some of the best cycle touring in Europe along the western coastlines, outlying islands, and Northern Ireland. Looking to share the adventure with one other sociable, M/F cyclist over 40. If you've never been there before or reside in western Montana, even better.

Fly to Shannon. Three weeks or longer. B&Bs, 40-60 miles a day. Light, daily rainfall, cool temps. Little sun. Prehistoric settlements, lots of stone walls, conviviality, Gaeltacht (Irish-speaking) regions. A ride on the "Happy Hooker."

An extensive network of peaceful, narrow backroads, rolling hills, stunning mountain passes, beautiful greenery, lovely towns and villages, the world's friendliest people, and finger-tapping trad music in the pubs at night make Ireland ideal for bike touring.

Downright addictive I'd say, Jack!

Cycled around ireland last year. Just for you to know : some guidebooks say that you have best weather for cycling Ireland in April, early May.

We did it and had 2 days of rain during six weeks of cycling.

Ireland - Good Choice Indeed

Dirk and Linda,

The Irish climate and I are close friends.  I've toured by bike all over the island nine times now. Yes, it's that grand.
