|Friends we made on our Irish cycling holidays|
This was our second trip with Irish Cycle Tours; the bikes, the route and accommodation were again first class and the scenery was stunning. We are already planning a return trip next year.
Wonderful trip, professionally organised, totally friendly people everywhere; I hope to be back again.
What a sensational time I had on my cycle tour. It was an amazing experience from start to finish; I was very sad when it ended. All the B&B's were wonderful, and well located. Thank you for your part in a wonderful vacation. I'm already thinking about where to go next; you'll probably hear from me again sometime.
"Our bikes were excellent and a lot of trouble was taken to make sure they fitted well and were suitably equipped"
We had a fantastic trip - all enjoyed it - the Glens of Antrim were absolutely amazing. Many thanks for the organization and back up that really made it all run very smoothly.
Best wishes, Rick Taylor – Bristol UK
Living in Ireland I thought I knew the best cycling routes in the loveliest areas. I didn't. The routes provided took us along roads I never knew existed. Always quiet, sometimes no wider than a tractor, but always ideal for cycling and with the best views around. I thought I could easily find the most welcoming of B&Bs in the most charming surroundings. I couldn't. We stayed in grand family houses, we stayed in restored stone cottages. A full Irish breakfast to set us on our way after a good nights sleep. And then it rained. Living in Ireland anybody can find rain. It enriches our forty shades of green.
For our first visit to Ireland, Irish Cycle Tours provided us the ultimate cycling tour with a challenging diverse scenic route, superb accommodation, all in the comfort of safety.
Everything was very easily handled over e-mail and since I did not know the North of Ireland it was good to have my three week customised trip planned by Irish Cycle Tours. It worked out very fine.
Thanks for organising a great holiday, skillfully tailored to what we were looking for. Beautiful countryside, friendly people and nice towns.
Booking by e-mail was very efficient; response times by Irish Cycle Tours were very quick. This was a repeat trip for both of us and once again we thoroughly enjoyed it.
Booking by e-mail very helpful. Three great days, bikes were superb, great gears, hosts at the B&Bs very helpful, breakfasts were fantastic and the sights on the trip are not to be missed.
We were very impressed with the organised packet of information and route briefing at the start of our holiday. This was an excellent trip that will be remembered for years to come.
We loved this bike trip. The scenery was incredible, the roads were quiet with very few cars and the people brought joy to our hearts.
Great services from the B & B hosts, awesome scenery, a very challenging ride - especially if you take some of the coastal alternatives. We THOROUGHLY enjoyed ourselves and would highly recommend the tour.
The bike tour was a wonderful way to experience the beautiful Antrim Coast - definitely the highlight of my trip to Ireland. The places we stayed were all set in beautiful areas, the detailed maps and thorough directions made it difficult to get lost and Ian our guide had excellent knowledge of the route and besides was one of the nicest people one could hope to meet.
We can’t imagine a better bike touring experience – we’ve already started raving about it to our friends. In four days we saw more varied and beautiful countryside than we thought possible. Everything was great, the people, the scenery, the accommodation & equipment and even the weather. Thanks!
Superb, we enjoyed every single minute. The friendly warm people we met along the way made our experience more enjoyable. Thank you very much. We’ll recommend you to our friends.
The accommodations were wonderful. Every guesthouse B&B and hotel surpassed my expectations. The people were so nice, breakfasts were wonderful and the locations were perfect. The tour was incredible. I can think of no better way to experience the sights of Northern Ireland that on a bike.
It was a great vacation. A very varied tour with a bit of everything – coast, glens, countryside, great views and objects of interest. Everything was very well organised and I hope to spend another cycling holiday with your company.
For us this tour had just the right amount of "hand holding " by our guide, coupled with the opportunity tobe as adventuresome as we cared to be. Northern Ireland and the Antrim Glens are very very beautiful, inviting and friendly.
I had a fabulous time. This was an excellently organised tour and cycling is the best way to see suchbeautiful countryside. Ian was a terrific guide, very dedicated and knowledgeable and added a lot to the trip also had wonderful sense of humour.
Well we had a great week. The bikes were excellent and we had fantastic weather all week.
Our trip exceeded our expectations in all aspects. The scenery was spectacular, the people open and friendly and the tour impeccably organised. We enjoyed everyone’s contribution to our wonderful vacation. We are looking forward to returning.
A fascinating tour - very carefully researched, organised and planned. Huge variety and the bicycle is an excellent way to discover it. The route notes were very well prepared the bicycles had excellent gearing and Ian our guide had excellent knowledge of the area. We came expectant and returned tired but delighted. Others should share our delight.
The variety of the tour was much more that I had expected. Being on the coast in the morning, forest and glens in the mid-day and farmland at day’s end made me truly appreciate the Antrim Glens and Causeway Coast area. It was structured enough with documented details to give me a good comfort level but had additional flexibility with the guide’s daily sessions giving me options each day. The Irish Cycle Tours ended up being a fabulous time.
I thought the trip was great. From the coast of day two to the Giant’s Causeway of day three. I couldn’t stop taking pictures. I recommend this trip to anyone who has time to see Ireland.
Had a marvellous time. A great way of discovering Ireland. With an alternative of hard and easy hills this tour is definitely worth all of it.
A great tour. Full of beautiful scenery on a great safe route. Accommodations were excellent with yummy breakfasts. Great routes, bikes and guide.
Our trip was wonderful. Thank you for the great experience. We’ll never forget it and definitely recommend it to people we meet. Thank you.
Well-organised tour. Countryside and coast were beautiful and everyone was so friendly and helpful. The tour was very enjoyable even though hard at times.
First class booking arrangements very detailed route notes and excellent accommodation. It was great to have a granny gear on the bicycle and Ian our guide was terrific – a great host, tour guide and all round PR person. I felt I could depend on him if any problem arose. A magnificent tour. I will recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see Northern Ireland by bicycle.
