This Best of the West trip will take you to some of the best scenery and sights that Connemara has to offer. Highlights include Killary Harbour and the stunning Delphi Valley, and the beautiful town of Westport. You will also head north into Mayo and cycle along the lovely Greenways Cycle Route towards the island of Achill. There will be time to fully explore Achill, with its stunning beaches, before finishing the tour by cycling on quiet backroads to the Museum of Country Life near Castlebar. A transfer will finally bring you back to the start point of the tour, the city of Galway.
This is an easy and enjoyable cycle route. There is very little by way of climbing, and the lower milage leaves plenty of time to explore your stunning surroundings. The distance of the routes also makes this tour more suitable for younger cyclists. There are plenty of options available, on a number of days, if you fancy a break from cycling. For example we arrive early in Leenane, giving you the choice of either relaxing in the hotel spa or riding on to find some fantastic routes.
