Connemara is one of the most popular destinations for cyclists coming to Ireland. It's easy to see why Lonely Planet claimed that our Connemara Safari was one of the must do cycling trips in Europe. This Safari starts and finishes in Galway city, Ireland's liveliest city with cobbled streets of entertainers, pubs spilling over with merriment and the wonderful backdrop of Galway Bay. The tour starts with a transfer to the village of Clonbur, away from busy roads, where the cycling starts. Our route takes in the best of the area including the colourful town of Westport, the pilgrimage mountain of Croagh Patrick, the stunning Delphi Valley, Killary Harbour, Kylemore Abbey, Clifden and the famous Sky Road. We ride across spectacular open bogland, pass deserted beaches. On our last day we take a ferry over to the Aran Island to visit the dramatic hill fort of Dun Aengus. We stay overnight on the Island and take the late afternoon ferry back to the mainland on our last day.
