The 12 Day Tour consists of 12 full days of cycling. If you prefer a more strenuous challenge we also run a 7 Day tour. The first day is our transfer and arrival day. The total distance is 1,040 km averaging 87 km per day. The total elevation is 9,708 m averaging 809 m per day. The 12-Day Ireland End-to-End is a moderate tour. Some days do include moderate climbs and medium level distances. Depending on how regularly you cycle and what distances you are used to, you will most likely need to do some training. Don’t forget you have 12 days in a row without a rest day.

The tour is primarily on quiet roads with a small number of joining sections on busier roads. Some cycling in towns and cities is necessary, particularly at the start and end of the day. The route is very scenic with the following itinerary (note figures may differ slightly):
