I'm looking for one other sociable individual (M/F age 35+) with a light sense of humor, flexibility and a love of good conversation to join me for a four-week trip in two of the most hospitable and ruggedly beautiful countries in Europe.
June and July of 2022. Flying into and out of Shannon in County Clare, then biking through Galway, Mayo, Sligo, Donegal, Derry, Antrim, Cork and Kerry. Overnights in B&Bs. 40-60 miles a day. Dinners in restaurants and pubs. Lively traditional music sessions at night.
We'll bike around the magnificent Connemara loop and remote Dingle Peninsula, hike Croagh Patrick, climb Glengesh Pass, Moll's Gap and Macgillycuddy's Reeks, wobble on the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge and the Giant's Causeway, visit Belfast and Dublin and enjoy an extensive network of lightly-traveled back roads. Ferry trips to the Aran Islands, Skellig Michael and Inishturk, plus two short train rides.
Ireland's fickle weather, gray skies and daytime highs of around 60° F mitigated by the beautiful scenery, exceptionally friendly people, pre-historic sites and requisite pastry, tea and hot soup stops along the way.
