Pack your sense of adventure and get away from the everyday
Cycle through Irelands most scenic National Park and explore the forested hills, sprawling heather moors and jagged rock formations that make the Kingdom of Kerry so truly spectacular. This four-day Irish Escape offers a comfortable yet active way to get away from it all. Base yourself in the charming country town of Killarney and cycle your way over the scenic Gap of Dunloe, a boat trip around the famous Skellig Islands and on the lakes of Killarney, with ample time for short gentle hikes and to meet the locals and discover friendly local pubs along the way. A countryside escape awaits.

Welcome to the Kingdom of Kerry and the charming town of Killarney. Unpack your bags and make yourself comfortable, secure in the knowledge that you will spend the next three nights in the same accommodation, with no need to repack until you leave. After the 2 pm group meeting, get a bike fitting with the group followed by a short test ride to make sure everything is working properly. This afternoon’s ride is an excellent introduction to cycling in the Killarney National Park, a 3-hour flat ride that takes you out of Killarney town and through classic rolling scenery to reach Torc Waterfall, one of the largest in Ireland. Take a rest and enjoy the sounds of the water crashing down the green moss-covered rocks, Follow the path around the lake then turn back towards the Muckross House, enjoying stunning views of the lower lake and McGillicuddy Reeks. Upon return expect a mix of paved road and forest trails. Highlights may include sightings of rare red deer herds in native oak forest, a centuries-old yew tree at the centre of a ruined abbey and idyllic lakeside and mountain views, all towards a well-earned brew at the end of the day.
