      Day 2

      Coast to Coast on the Beara Peninsula

      The quietest and least-known peninsula in Kerry, the dramatic Beara Peninsula is cycling heaven. We’ll weave across the headland from coast to coast, with time to take in the Healy Pass, a classic Irish cycling route. The undulating views along this under-rated peninsula combined with its plethora of ancient history and fascinating local mythology, make Kerry’s Beara Peninsula one of Ireland’s best-kept secrets and an absolute E-biking gem.

      Tackling our second peninsula today, the Iveragh Peninsula is home to the world-famous Ring of Kerry. Cycling along stretches of the renowned route, we’ll pass the soaring McGillicuddy’s Reeks Mountains, winding past Ireland’s highest mountain following an ancient route named for Oisin, a mythological Irish hero, before arriving in Killarney National Park.

      Today we’re in for a treat with several iconic cycling routes on our itinerary. Cycling through Molls Gap offers panoramic views over the mountains we conquered yesterday before we cross the Gap of Dunloe, home to the iconic Wishing Bridge. Pedal through the lush verdant canopy of Killarney woodlands, E-bike the shores of the spectacular lakes, gaze up the romantic ruins of crumbling castles, hear the clip-clop of quaint horse-drawn carriages, and perhaps even spot the local red deer.

      Cycling the Dingle Peninsula

      The Dingle Peninsula is the final headland in the trip of peninsulas on this exhilarating E-bike tour. After mastering the classic climbs along the Ring of Kerry, we’ll say goodbye to Iveragh’s peaks and enjoy Dingle’s gentler coastal roads. Breathe in the salty Atlantic Ocean air with every pedal stroke as you gaze out upon white sand beaches and the craggy Kerry coastline. Ireland is world-renowned for its whiskey, so after our bike ride today, we’re in for a treat – a whiskey tasting led by a connoisseur. In the evening, enjoy some of Dingle’s live music – a bastion of traditional Irish music.

      Meals Included: Breakfast and Lunch
      Ride Details: 25 km / 16 miles | 480 m / 1,575 ft

      Slea Head, Ireland's Westerly Point

      Slea Head is about as far west as we can go – the next stop west is North America. Looping around this amazing headland, drink in the fantastic views of the remote Blasket Islands, evacuated in the 1950s, before exploring ancient monastic beehive huts, stone oratories and hidden coves of Slea Head – perhaps with time to taste some local whiskey. In the evening, we’ll celebrate the end of our trip with a splendid feast.

      Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
      Ride Details: 53 km / 33 miles | 560 m / 1,837 ft

      Grading Read More

      Blue Graded 4-6
      Our blue graded trips are aimed at people who regularly enjoy road cycling and may have completed a multi-day cycle tour before. These trips include the occasional day with steeper climbs, but with plenty of opportunities to stop and admire the view and take photos.

      Harder days are usually followed by much easier ones both in terms of how much distance we cover that day and the number of steep ascents. Most days these trips allow plenty of time for exploring the surrounding area and enjoying relaxed lunches.

      Distance typically ranges from 30-50 miles each with rolling terrain. On some days you can expect some more challenging climbs and steeper descents. But remember, our support minivan will always be available to offer you a ride if you need it.

      The Bottom Line

      The Bottom Line

      This was my second guided bike trip with Wilderness Ireland, and it was just as fantastic as the first. Our guides, Duncan and Katie were so helpful and took care of our every need. I appreciated their depth of knowledge regarding the local geography, flora and fauna, and cultural tidbits. Our accommodations were lovely, but it was the scenic beauty of the ride that took my breath away. I am so glad thatI have seen Ireland with Wilderness Ireland, and look forward to another trip in the future! Thank you so much.
