Irish Cycling Safaris have been organising bike tours in the west coast of Ireland since 1989. Since then we have expanded our cycling holidays to cover the length and breadth of Ireland as well as numerous locations all over Europe. However our ethos has not changed over that time, we still aim to offer good quality biking tours in the most beautiful scenery at affordable prices.

“We had SUCH a great time biking in the west coast of Ireland. The beauty exceeded our expectations. We came home feeling like we really had the chance to truly experience Ireland: it's land, people and culture.”

Clare & the Burren

The Lizmores and Lapkowskis 2018

“We had a great holiday in Ireland and really enjoyed the bike tour. There was so much to see and beautiful scenery and people along the way. The weather was unbelievable! No rain at all and no wind.”

“We had an AMAZING trip. We will be recommending this trip and your company to our cycling friends. So, thank you! Love your beautiful country and long to return one day!”

Paul Mahony

Connemara 2018

Wendy (Gwendolyn) and Dan

Bruges to Amsterdam 2018

“Our trip was wonderful: relaxing and energizing at the same time. The crew aboard the Sailing Home was warm and inviting, and the food was terrific. The ship itself was clean and comfortable, with plenty of deck room for people to kick back and enjoy their surroundings.”

Rob Southwell

Bruges to Amsterdam 2018

“Following two cycles in Ireland, this was our first bike and boat trip. We had a wonderful time. The boat, crew, and bicycles were fantastic. The daily distances were very manageable, the scenery lovely and the lunch stops so good, we didn’t want to get going again. Will definitely do another one, just so many tours to choose from…..”

Tom Haser

Tyler Mcmahon

Swiss Lakes 2018

“We loved the Swiss Lakes tour! The route was incredible. Beautiful landscapes everywhere, quaint medieval towns throughout, and spots to swim all along the way. Switzerland was the perfect place for our first self-guided tour. The cycling routes, the infrastructure, and the train transfers were just incredible.”

Paul Moore

Venice Lands 2017

“Overall this was an excellent tour enjoyed in great weather in wonderful country side. The unexpected highlight was the ferry boat around Venice. Just spectacular. Like cruising through a vast sunlit movie set. We had a really wonderful holiday and would be happy to recommend it.”

Bob Hurley

Wicklow 2017

Ring of Kerry 2016

"Our trip around Ring of Kerry and Dingle Peninsula was excellent! The route each day took us across amazing and challenging terrain. The views were stunning, especially at Slea Head and the Gap of Dunloe. Every time we arrived at a new B&B after a day of cycling, our luggage was there waiting for us along with a warm welcome fro that nights hosts. The whole trip was well organized, well planned, and super fun! Cannot recommend Irish Cycling Safaris highly enough."
