Active Adventure


 - Ireland: Connemara Bike - Freewheeling Adventures
The cliffs, coves, beaches, moorlands, and beautiful, quiet lanes of Western Ireland are the setting for this fabulous ride. Dramatic skies, bracken and heather-clad hills, and remarkably emerald fields create scenery beyond your imagination. This is the landscape that inspired Yeats and Joyce to their litany of legendary prose. Populated by the musical folk of Celtic descent, the pub-peppered villages create wonderfully photogenic opportunities for exploration and indulgence in rich Irish culture. This is a place where you'll wish you lived.

Starting at the Cliffs of Moher, you will descend to the coastal village of Doolin. From there, you will ride around the ancient Burren before ferrying out to Inishmore, the largest of the Aran Islands, to see such highlights as the cliff top fort of Dun Aengus. Another short ferry will take you to County Galway, where you will meander along the convoluted coast and many of the wee villages which make Connemara such a stimulating, rewarding place to ride. You will spend two nights in a lodge near the shore of Lough Inagh, surrounded by inviting mountains and breathtaking stillness. Finally, an exceptionally scenic ride will take you along the Sky Road.

Typical Day


 - Ireland: Connemara Bike - Freewheeling Adventures
If you want to travel with van support and cheerful, caring guides, and have most of your meals included, a guided trip is the best choice for you. Your luggage is carried for you, and on most days, the guide(s) will pass you in the support vehicle frequently to offer you snacks, drinks, and opportunities to catch a lift. The groups usually congregate for picnic lunches and special affairs, but otherwise tend to spread out along the route during the day, each rider choosing his or her own pace. Because you will be sharing your holiday with other adventurers likely to have a few things in common with you, your evening dinners become enriched by shared stories and entertainment, and you may make friends who will share your future adventure plans.

Sleeping and meals


 - Ireland: Connemara Bike - Freewheeling Adventures
Accommodations are high-end, well appointed inns, resorts, or hotels. We ensure that you will have a private bath, and aim to find the most unique, accommodating, comfortable accommodations available.

We provide excellent nutrition for hungry adventurers. Breakfasts are always included. On self-guided trips, we provide the information you need to make good lunch and dinner choices. On guided trips most lunches and dinners are included. We prepare picnics for you along the route, we provide healthy snacks for between meals, and we dine at the best restaurants we know, making exceptions only when the freedom to explore is the most appropriate option. We ask you for information about your dietary restrictions and preferences before you arrive. Vegetarians, seafood lovers, children, and discriminating palates can usually be well accommodated. If you have specific dietary needs, such as kosher or very restrictive diets, please ask before booking.

Other Information


All adventure prices are per person, and based on double occupancy. Single occupancy charges reflect the cost of having a room by yourself. If you prefer to share or to avoid the extra cost, and are joining an advertised departure, give us as much notice as you can, and we will do our best to match you with a roommate of the same gender. If you reserve at least 120 days in advance, and are willing to share a room, we will waive the charge even if we are unable to match you with a room-mate. From 120 to 60 days ahead, the charge will be reduced by 50%. Within 60 days, the single occupancy charge must apply until we are able to match you up. Any charge will be refunded if we are later able to match you up with a room-mate. Please note that where suitable shared occupancy is not available, a pro-rated single occupancy charge will apply. Please also note that private groups are not eligible for single occupancy exemption.

Discounts Offered


Rewards apply to any guided trip as advertised, booked directly with Freewheeling. They are not applicable to self-guided, self-supported, private or customized trips, or new departures requested less than six months in advance unless they fill (10ppl+). They can be combined with each other without limit, but cannot be combined with any other discounts, prizes, or rebates.


Referral Rewards
If you have referred new customers to book directly with us since your last Freewheeling Adventure, you are entitled to a reduced cost. Each new guest who mentioned you as a referrer will allow you $125 off your next trip in the same season. Qualifying referrals apply to new guests, excluding family members, who have never traveled with Freewheeling before, and who identify you as 'where they heard about FA'. They apply to your next payment once they have confirmed a scheduled guided trip of five days or more. You can ask your referrals to tell us you recommended us, or you can simply give us their name and contact details yourself. Unless they are already on our list, we will send them our invitation, and once they book, can apply the credit to your next adventure. Please claim the reward when you reserve your next trip, or before your final balance is due.
