Ireland is the third Gaelic itinerary added to DuVine’s portfolio of luxury cycling vacations, following Scotland, United Kingdom and Brittany, France. Despite a reputation for rain, these Gaelic destinations are ideal for cycling. According to DuVine’s Ireland Trip Designer, Stephane Dumont, “[The Dingle Peninsula] feels like many of the roads were designed by cyclists rather than engineers; guaranteed to put a smile on the face of anyone who is lucky enough to ride here.” The area’s cool temperatures ensure a comfortable ride, and the brief, light rain showers are more of a refreshing treat during a day of cycling.

Direct flights from Boston, New York, Toronto, San Francisco, Chicago and other major North American cities make traveling to Ireland an easy getaway. Additionally, DuVine offers Concierge Travel Planning assistance to take all the stress out of managing the travel arrangements outside of the bike tour. This service assists travelers with hotel reservations, private transfers, train tickets, car rentals, and city tours. With DuVine’s expert staff taking care of the details, travelers can relax and focus on getting excited for their upcoming vacation. With departures fast approaching, now is the time to secure space on DuVine’s Ireland Bike Tour.
