In September 2021, I had the opportunity to experience Ireland’s beauty firsthand through bike touring, hiking, and camping across the country. My father, who has been visiting Ireland three times a year for the past 30 years, has also shared his insights and love for this enchanting land.
Ireland is often associated with rain, sea cliffs, castles, and of course, its iconic pubs. While you will certainly encounter these elements during your trip, there is so much more to discover. From the famed Guinness beer to the picturesque lakes and rolling country roads, Ireland truly has something for everyone.
During my cycling adventure, I met some incredibly friendly locals and enjoyed countless cups of tea and cookies. For those who love the outdoors, Ireland boasts a diverse array of camping options, including campgrounds, wild camping spots, and farm stays.
The country’s excellent infrastructure makes it easy to explore by train, bus, or car, although cycling enthusiasts can also navigate their way around with ease. I am eager to share my experiences and tips to help you make the most of your journey through this captivating country. I have no doubt that you’ll fall in love with Ireland just as I did.
