    Motorcycle tour in Ireland, Mystical Ireland, Day 1 Welcome to Dublin, Ireland! The tour leaders will pick you up from Dublin Airport and escort you to our hotel. Depending on when you arrive, you may have time to explore some of the many shops and historic sites in this typical Irish city before we meet for the motorcycle handover later in the afternoon. We will have a kickoff meeting in the evening, followed by our first dinner together.

    Motorcycle tour in Ireland, Mystical Ireland, Day 2 Our journey begins on one of Ireland’s most scenic rides, the Antrim Coast Road. After making our way through the lush countryside, we will ride along the coast to the Giant’s Causeway. This World Heritage Site has defended the coast for some 60 million years and is an excellent stop for pictures. From here, we will visit the oldest working distillery in Ireland: Bushmills. Upon arriving at our destination, we recommend a walk through the 17th-century walls of Londonderry, situated on the west bank of the River Foyle, which is spanned by two road bridges and one footbridge. It is also nicknamed the “Maiden City” by virtue of the fact that its walls were never breached despite being besieged on three separate occasions in the 17th century.

    Motorcycle tour in Ireland, Mystical Ireland, Day 3 There is so much to do on your free day in Londonderry! Spend the day exploring the ancient walls or some of the many cathedrals and museums. Alternatively, head out of the city and take a short ride on the Lough Foyle Ferry from Magilligan to the quaint fishing town of Greencastle on the picturesque Inishowen Peninsula. From Greencastle, ride out to Ireland’s northernmost point of Malin Head. Head over to Fort Dunree before making your way back to Londonderry for the evening. Last but certainly not least, enjoy a typical Irish pub for dinner in a local atmosphere!

    Motorcycle tour in Ireland, Mystical Ireland, Day 4 From the wind-whipped tip of Malin Head to the safe haven of Kinsale Harbour, the so-called “Wild Atlantic Way” leads as the world’s longest defined coastal touring route through the wilderness of the west coast of Ireland. It is a sensational journey of soaring cliffs and buzzing towns and cities, of hidden beaches and epic bays.The 2,500 km (1,553 mile) driving route passes through nine counties and three provinces. As we head west on the Wild Atlantic Way, the viewpoints will have you saying “wow” at every turn. We will pass through the enchanting Glenveagh National Park and pass the pinkish glow of Mount Errigal before reaching our destination of Donegal.

    Motorcycle tour in Ireland, Mystical Ireland, Day 5 Today we will enjoy the many vistas as we skirt the west coast on our way to the medieval town of Westport, County Mayo. In the morning we will pass through the city of Sligo – the area around the town has one of the highest densities of prehistoric archaeological sites in Ireland. Later in the day Ballycroy National Park is on our way: one of the largest expanses of peatland in Europe, consisting of 117.79 square kilometres of Atlantic blanket bog, making it a unique habitat with a diverse flora and fauna.
    Westport with its incorporation of the river into the city’s composition is a popular tourist destination and scores highly for Quality of Life. It has also won the Irish Tidy Competition three times in the past and it also won the Best Place to Live in Ireland competition run by The Irish Times.

We will stop at the stunning Cliffs of Moher, rising between 120 m and 240 m between Hag’s Head and O’Brien’s Tower.
