IRELAND END-TO-END IN 7 DAYS
The 7 Day tour consists of 7 full days of cycling. If you prefer a more leisurely challenge we also run a 12 Day tour. The first day is our transfer and arrival day. The total distance is 575 miles, averaging 90 miles per day. The total elevation is 28,000 feet, averaging 4,000 feet per day. The 7-Day Ireland End-to-End is a challenging tour with some longer days in the saddle. Days vary, but generally the route has some climbs of medium difficulty and a few which are challenging. You will most likely need to train for the event and ensure you are fit enough to complete the distance and climbing.
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. Roads are generally well surfaced and suitable for road bike tires of 25 mm or more. We recommend a good quality and well-fitted road bike with dropped handlebars for the 7 Day tour. If bringing your bike in a box, we can remove it and return it to you at the end of the tour. The route is very scenic with the following itinerary (note figures may differ slightly):
