Description

Day 1: Dublin
Individual arrival in Dublin and hotel accommodation. Free time available to explore this vibrant and popular city. Discover the cathedral and the castle, the museums dedicated to J.Joyce and the whiskey distilleries, and the Ha’Penny Bridge, an arched pedestrian bridge built to unite the two banks of the Liffey. Don't miss a visit to the Guinness brewery and a walk in Temple Bar, the most lively point of the medieval center, a crossroads full of pubs, theaters and cafes.

Day 2: Dublin – Enniskerry (30 km)
After the delivery of the bicycles, the tour begins following quiet roads to the coastal city of Dun Loaghaire and the charming village of Dalkey where you can stop for lunch. You will continue along the scenic Vico Road with its beautiful views on Killiney Bay heading inland towards the charming town of Enniskerry. A transfer (not included) can be arranged to the famous Johnnie Foxes Pub, the "highest" in Ireland, where you can spend a traditionally Irish evening with good food and great Guinness, along with excellent musical entertainment.

Day 3: Enniskerry – Glendalough (48 km)
After breakfast, you can visit the beautiful Powerscourt Gardens before heading towards Sally Gap Road to Roundwood, in the heart of the valley between moors and lakes nestled between hills. After lunch, you will continue to Laragh which is located behind the monastic village of Glendalough (which means valley of the two lakes) with the ruins of the abbey founded by St Kevin in the 6th century and its distinctive round tower.

Day 4: Glendalough
Today you can rest staying in the vicinity of Laragh and Glendalough or walk along one of the many marked trails around the nearby lakes. The Wicklow Mountains area is very frequented by tourists escaping the chaos of Dublin: it's nearby, green, quiet. Almost everyone stops to visit the monastic site of Glendalough, one of the most suggestive in Ireland. But the real charm are the two lakes that make the valley so wonderful. It's no coincidence that right here St. Kevin decided to retire to a solitary life: silence reigns unchallenged, the pines drop vertiginously to lick the still water. Beyond the gothic ruins of the monastery, you have the opportunity to choose from a series of beautiful walks in the green woods that surround this area.

Day 5: Glendalough – Aughrim (40 or 51 km)
Today you will have the opportunity to do two different routes, both directed on the east bank of the Avonmore river. You can choose to visit the village of Avoca, or opt for the wild mountain scenery on the ancient military road, built to allow the British troops to access the rebellious tribes of these valleys, once wooded. Today's destination is Aughrim, a lovely village with numerous testimonies of its ancient splendor.

Day 6: Aughrim – Wicklow (48 or 65 km)
Today you will again have the choice: you can cross the low coastal hills to cycle north along the coast and take a dip in Brittas Bay, a beautiful blue flag beach; or venture into the wooded hills on almost traffic-free roads through remote villages to admire the mysterious Motte Stone before descending towards the coast and Wicklow, a welcoming seaside town with Viking origins.
 
Day 7: Wicklow – Dublin (50 km)
 
The last stage will take you back inland, to the village of Roundwood where you can stop for lunch. Alternatively, you can cycle along beautiful country roads until you reach the village of Enniskerry, where a transfer (not included) will take you to Dublin for the last night of the tour.
 
Day 8: Dublin
After breakfast, end of services and individual departure.
