What our guests are saying:
“Fidelma organised and hosted a fantastic cycling trip through the scenic and storied landscape of the Connemara in West Ireland. Each day was filled with stunning landscapes and memories that will last a lifetime. The trip was some of the most fun I’ve had on two wheels. Fidelma was an outstanding host and the accommodations along the journey were wonderful. I highly recommend Fidelma and CycleWest Ireland as an adventure and vacation” Steven Morris, Mth Degree
“Our trip was fabulous!. You really know how to organize a tour for the greatest scenery and wonderful accommodations. ….the little lanes we spent the majority of our time on were so relaxing and fun to ride on. They also got us into the wilderness and I often felt we were a hundred miles from anywhere!” Dan Peters & Family, Superior, Colorado
“This was one of the best vacations of our lives. We will definitely be taking more vacations with you” ~Barbara and Shane Treadway,
