AN OVERVIEW OF OUR ECOTOURISM PRACTICES
NATURE AND THE ENVIRONMENT
CycleWest offers cycling tours in Ireland that combine authenticity and ambiance by emphasizing small groups, a relaxed cycling pace and charming accommodation. In this way, we hope to deliver a unique biking experience. By travelling by bike we introduce a greater immersion into local communities and families on our trips. You get to meet and engage with local villagers and learn more about the local culture.
SMALL GROUP TRAVEL
Our guided tours are designed for individuals from all walks of life and of varied interests and abilities. We usually limit the number of participants to a small group: 8 – 10 persons in each group. This way we can offer a uniquely personalized experience to each of our guests. We provide vehicle support and luggage transport. By travelling as a small group we can truly have a positive interaction and social exchange with the people we meet and visit.
SUPPORTING LOCAL SERVICES, GOODS AND PRODUCE When you travel with CycleWest Ireland you will be supporting local communities, local food producers and artisans, local business and by doing so, you creating your very own rewarding experience! At CycleWest Ireland, we celebrate the authenticity, the diversity and quality of country homes and hotels.
Our portfolio of Hotels, Lodges, Guesthouses, B&B’s and restaurants support the local community and local food producers from the area you visit. Our hand picked selection is made up of owners who have worked hard to make sure their business has a positive impact by making significant contributions to their local community, have a proven passion for serving local and organic food and in many cases, work hard to reduce the environmental footprint of their place to stay.
Each location has been selected for its personal and charming qualities. Typically family owned and run, we offer a superior selection of Bed and Breakfast guesthouses, country houses and hotels have been tried and tested on your behalf! A wonderful breakfast made of home grown, organic or locally sourced produce is provided at the beginning of each day’s cycling. At the end of each day, we have selected a variety of restaurants, many award winning, that are known for the finest Irish ingredients: local seafood, freshwater fish, vegetables and farmhouse cheeses all featured, often from their own gardens, farms and rivers. Many places have special environmental and historical significance. We like to give our guests the opportunity to learn about places you visit and their impact upon the country you are visiting, areas of natural focus and the local heritage.
