Throughout the trip the organisation and support was faultless. That was apparent in the run up to the trip and after its conclusion. Would I do Lejog or any other trip in the future yes I would and pedal Britain would be my first port of callRob Mckelvie (LEJOG June 2018)

Summary of Tour

This superb 10 day tour offers varied cycling through the delightful Irish countryside as we travel the 595 mile perfectly designed route from Mizen Head, Ireland's most SW point to Malin Head, its most Northernly point.  Being shorter and easier days than Land's End to John O'Groats (LEJOG) allows for some later starts / earlier finishes enabling you to relax and recover by taking advantage of any Hotel leisure facilities, indulge in the fantastic local produce or explore historic towns. 

 

A stand out feature is the people, they are just so friendly and hospitable, the Irish charm is well known around the world. Most towns and villages still have at least one pub where you can find traditional evening music sessions taking place, enabling us to indulge in experiencing the famous 'Irish Craic'.

We'll journey through a varied landscape of mountains and moorland, dotted with quiet peaceful villages and isolated farmhouses. Ireland's wild and craggy coastline is spectacular, with mile upon mile of crystal clear sea, sandy beaches, small rocky bays and traditional fishing harbours.

After transferring you from our Hotel at Cork Airport to the start point at Mizen Head, our route uses an excellent network of minor roads taking you along the Mizen peninsula to Bantry Bay and into the surrounding mountains. Turning inland we cycle the dramatic Black Valley and it's unique mountain pass, The Gap of Dunloe. We venture deep into picturesque County Kerry with the amazing Killarney National Park, and then cross the Shannon Estuary by ferry.

We skirt Wild Atlantic surfing beaches and towns before visiting the iconic 'Cliffs of Moher' for a quick selfie and along the distinctive karst limestone plateau of the Burren. Through County Galway, onto the vast open bogs, loughs and mountains of Connemara. From here we enjoy even more stunning scenery including the Sky Road and a glacial fjord, Killary Harbour.

After Galway's enticing old pubs and Irish traditional music we continue to the pretty town of Donegal, before tackling the Inishowen Peninsula's remote moorlands and vast sea loughs that lead us to Malin Head for an epic finish.

From Malin Head, we provide a convenient coach transfer back for our overnight stay in Belfast.
