Burren Breakfast + Biking Tour

By Burren Fine Wine & Food

We’re glad you’re here, because we have something very special for you to connect with the spiritual and powerful Burren landscape by bike. An extremely peaceful tour that travels ancient routes after tasting the local produce of this beautiful landscape. Enjoy an early morning guided cycling tour through the heart of the Burren followed by a delicious mouth watering breakfast at a century old stone house. Starting in the morning when the roads are quieter and the birds are singing, peacefully pedalling through this spectacular landscape is a magical experience for you and your family to remember for many a day after your Burren visit. The cycle takes you to an earthen ring fort, a stone fort, to the town land of Gleninsheen where the famous Irish Bronze Age Collar of Gold was found in 1934, Gleninsheen wedge shaped gallery grave (another of Ireland’s many Diarnaid’s and Grainne’s Bed). Also on route is the world famous Poulnabroune Portal Tomb and Caherconnell stone fort, Poulawack Cairn, the Kilconrney caves,Cahermacnaughten stone fort home to the famous O’Dabhoireann Law School. Finally cycle to the top of the famous Corkscrew Hill to enjoy amazingly beautiful views of Ballyvaughan valley and Galway Bay before coasting down to the old stone house for breakfast. Here you will be greeted with aromas of freshly brewed coffee and home baking. You can choose a breakfast of fresh free range eggs from a neighbouring farm and hot scones straight from the oven or an organic smoked salmon bagel using salmon from the Burren Smokehouse and Manhattan bagels made down the road in New Quay.
