Cycling Holiday in the Burren

A memorable cycling adventure in the Burren & Cliffs of Moher

The rocky Burren is a national park and one of the most unique landscape types in the world. The karst limestone bedrock, blanketing the countryside is full of rare flora and fauna. The land is criss crossed with an ancient network or roads and small laneways making it an ideal place to explore by bike.

The Burren has been inhabited by humans for millennia with some historic sites, such as Poulnabrone Dolmen dated to 2,500BC. The area is dotted with hundred of archaeological sites of interest spanning the Bronze, Iron, Early Christian, Viking and medieval ages.

This cycling tour takes you to small traditional Irish villages full of culture and tradition. The villages of Doolin and Lisdoonvarna are strongholds for traditional Irish music. In the long summer evenings, the pubs come alive with nightly music and storytelling.
