Irish romantic poet, W.B. Yeats described Sligo on Ireland’s northwest Atlantic coast as “Land of Hearts Desire.” The Wilderness Ireland office is based in Sligo. So these are our local roads and you’ll benefit from our insider knowledge of each route. Sweeping mountains, miles-long empty beaches and bustling music-filled towns, Sligo is Ireland’s best kept secret. On quiet country lanes, find epic backdrops, friendly locals and an eclectic array of superb food stops dotting the county. This region is perfect for a self-guided cycling adventure. Each evening, feast upon Sligo’s fresh seafood and mingle with locals in one of the many wee pubs for a pint and some Irish trad music.
Biking up to 40 kilometres (25 miles) daily, there are also options to extend each day’s cycling for those wanting a bigger challenge. We’ll provide emergency assistance and luggage transfers so you can relax and enjoy the trip with peace of mind.
This is a self guided cycling tour, meaning you can bike at your own pace, stopping at your leisure to soak up the incredible scenery. You’ll have detailed route notes and a bike computer, as well as a mechanic on call if you require assistance. Self guided tours allow you to enjoy linear routes and more flexibility. However, do note that you’ll have neither a guide nor support driver on the road with you while you’re cycling.
