      Donegal Coastal Treasures.... Bike Trip of a Lifetime!
      Everything about this tour was simply FANTASTIC. The views were jaw dropping. The E-Bikes were excellent (do get an E-Bike, its hilly and they are so much fun to ride). The routes were off the beaten track and so easy to follow with the GPS system and written instructions provided by our really wonderful Tour Hosts. The B&Bs were delightful with really terrific hosts, easy access to towns, always very clean and included the infamous HUGE Irish breakfasts each morning which will get you all the way to supper. We did every "extra" along the route and I'd encourage you to do the same, its always worth seeing another gorgeous spot. We took our time and stopped at historical sites, phenomenal beaches for picnics and crafts people along the route...there's no need to rush because the mileage each day is so reasonable. I travelled with my husband and our three nieces on the 7 night Donegal Coastal Treasures Tour and all agreed it was the trip of a lifetime.

      E-bike rental
      We rented e-bikes for three weeks. When we needed additional bikes on short notice Seamus delivered them that day. Over an hour away. Seamus also suggested some fantastic routes to ride. Highly recommended.

      Donegal discovery
      We cycled six days on the Donegal Coastal Treasures Bike Tour, the lansdcapes were really nice. Sometimes we could not resist to stop every 100 meters to take pictures... We felt that Donegal County was as nice other more touristic places in Ireland, but a lot less crowded. Seamus and Nora provided everything needed to follow easily the tour, and a lot of interesting informations about the places to see along the way. They also helped us to arrange our arrival in Donegal when we missed our flight to Dublin and had to take the next one! All the accomodations and B&B were nice and comfortable, with lovely hosts.

      Wonderful bike touring in Donegal County
      Had a wonderful 5 day trip on bikes in Donegal county. Rented both e bike and regular bikes, and both were great. Seamus was very accommodating and helpful, and even delivered and picked up the bikes. Highly recommended!

      Best Vacation Ever!
      We did the Highlights of Donegal self-guided bike tour in June -- just two of us. It was the perfect vacation -- beautiful days of riding through the countryside and cozy evenings in small inns. It was super well-organized and totally stress-free. We don't know if it was Seamus's magical route-making or the e-bikes, but every day felt like mostly downhill. And the clockwise loops required very few tricky right turns. The route was mostly small roads and even smaller country lanes. The riding was so much fun! We highly recommend the e-bikes because we never had to think twice about doing the optional extensions, and those optional rides were the best (St. John's Point, Sliabh Liag Cliffs, Port, Glenveagh National Park). We were happy to have enough energy to hike to the top of Mount Errigal on a perfectly clear day -- amazing views of the whole of County Donegal. Seamus and Nora were a pleasure to work with. They were responsive and helpful and provided everything promised.

      Donegal Short Cycling Break
      The views were amazing. You will experience Ireland in a way you just can’t in a car. Riding through the countryside is an incredible feeling. Truly did not want it to end! Advice: 1) Get the e-bike, 2) Do the “extras” (it’s where the really good stuff is!). Seamus and Nora are the most accommodating and professional guides. The B&B’s we stayed in were absolutely grand!

      Amazing bike tour
      This was by far the most memorable event of our summer trip. The sights along the coast, in the mountains and the valleys were spectacular. The lodging arranged each night of our trip was wonderful as were the towns of Killybeggs, Carrrick and Ardara. The bikes provided were very nice, but I think I'll use an ebike next time.

      We would do it again tomorrow.
      We did the 10 day highlights of Donegal tour and had an absolute blast. Friendly folks, beautiful sights, welcoming accommodations and plenty of opportunities to explore well off of the beaten path. Nora and Séamus were super responsive when we were getting the trip set up and laid out a great route. Being able to ride from town to town with our luggage always ready to greet us at the next destination was awesome. I can't say enough about the warmth of the the people in County Donegal. Top to bottom. One of the best holidays we have spent together.

      Backroads and Beyond
      Just finished the 10 day Backroads and Beyond bike/hike tour with Ireland by Bike. Let me highly recommend Seamus and Nora who organized a wonderful trip - spectacular scenery, quiet roads, good bikes, welcoming bnbs, lovely hikes, and friendly people all over Donegal. The weather was kind to us, and a reasonable level of fitness required for biking and hiking. Thanks Ireland by Bike

      A wonderful 10 day cycling trip
      As a group of 5, with 2 on ebikes, we asked Seamus to devise a self-guided itinerary of around 10 days cycling with a rest day in the middle. He did so marvellously. Each day was around 60 to 80km (with one day of just over 90kms), generally on back roads and country lanes which were a joy to ride. The little traffic we encountered was cautious and respectful of cyclists, so we felt much safer than on the roads of many other countries. The scenery was picturesque and at times spectacular, particularly along the coast. Our accommodation was in B & Bs and small hotels and it was comfortable and ideal for our requirements. The bikes were near new and robust and it was handy to have the front and side panniers which were provided (with a high viz vest). All in all, we had a terrific trip and we felt fully supported. We would highly recommend Ireland by Bike and cycling in northern Ireland.

      We rented bikes for 5 days for our self-guided tour & the bikes were delivered to our hotel. Our bikes were in good condition. The customer service we received from this family-owned business was 100% wonderful .... even the a forgotten item was returned to us.

      Ireland by Bike outrivals them all!
      The Yeats Country and Lakelands bike tour (7 day/6 night) caps our 46th week-long bike tour in Europe. What sets this tour apart from all the others is the full hands-on control that Seamus and Nora have over all aspects of their bike tour operation: prompt, knowledgeable and courteous replies to inquiries; itinerary planning that demonstrates their deep knowledge of the region by incorporating interesting sights and low-traffic routes; use of GPS and clear turn-by-turn directions for efficient navigation; personal briefing at tour start; close relationships cultivated with owners of carefully-selected accommodations; reliable e-bikes equipped with accessories suitable for cycle touring; and personal transferring of luggage. Take a bike tour with Ireland by Bike knowing that Seamus and Nora are behind you all the way!

      Fantastic e bike tour ofnremote northwestern Ireland
      6 Day E bike self guided tour of Donegal - Nora and Seamus couldn't have been more professional or helpful in getting me riding. The e bike they provided was top notch and their detailed instructions as well as the provided GPS guide made my solo trek hassle free. As for the scenery of north western Ireland- well it was vast and gorgeous and I felt like I had the entire place to myself. Their choices of accommodations were top notch and I would highly recommend their services

      Bespoke bikes with all the extras
      We were fortunate to be the first riders of brand new bikes which were very well built. We experienced a smooth cycle, but it is a very hilly place so lots of gear changes which the bikes handled well. The owner was very helpful giving us all we needed, panniers, hi viz vests, map of cycle rides, bike locks and helmets. Overall excellent service and value for money. The cycle routes were a bit long for us as we are not keen cyclists. But we got on well considering

    It was a beautiful experience. Getting the bikes was so easy, it was so professional yet so personal. Customer service was superb. Clear and easy directions were supplied with maps. Bikes were incredibly good, well serviced and we didn't use up the battery at max power. Looking forward to go back with kids. 100% recommend it.

    This was a real treat, the electric bikes are a gamechanger. We were staying in a campervana and wanted to see all the sights without having to pack up the van every day. We also didnt think our fitness levels were upto the hills around the area so Electric bikes were the answer!

    Very comfotable, reliable, and just made the whole cycling thing so much easier. We rented the bikes for 2 days and had a brilliant time in mixed weather conditions. Stopped into the Glencolmcille woolen mill aswell and bough 2 jumpers, the handy bags on the bikes meant we could carry them with us.

    I'd highly recommend this as the best way to get around up here. Easily do 40km a day and thats from someone who is not a cyclist.

    First time on an ebike and had a great day. The bike pick up and instructions from Seamus was really well organised. We did the cycle to silver strand …..would recommend bringing your towel and togs in the spacious pannier…even if you don’t go for a swim at least you will have the option. On Seamus’ recommendation we also did the short cycle to the Slieve League cliffs and is such a great way to avoid the walk from the car park as you can cycle all the way to the viewing point. My only regret is that we didn’t plan our trip to Donegal better so that we could take the ebikes out for a second day as there were a few other routes that Seamus had that looked really interesting.

    This was an incredible adventure and one I happily recommend. My daughter and I were so impressed with everything about the experience. The accommodations were comfortable and having the baggage portaged by Seamus each day made it easy. Our BAndB hosts were lovely at each stop. The GPS on the bikes took us off the beaten path and allowing us to enjoy an “in the weeds” Irish experience. The people and sights along the way provided us with such an authentic Irish feel. At almost 70 I was just a bit nervous about the rigor of the rides but I had absolutely no problems. I would do it all over again. Ireland May be the only vacation destination I was “homesick” for when I returned to the states.

    A brilliant day, 2 parents and 2 teens (16 and 18) spent many an hour savouring the beautiful views and lovely fresh air.
    2 of us hadn't ridden e bikes before - but we all loved them. Easy to ride, they made steep mountains a breeze. Friendly and helpful business - highly recommended.

    What an extraordinary way to take in the sights of Coastal Donegal.
    It was my first time on an e-bike and it rode so smoothly and comfortably. Nora and Seamus have curated such a special experience. They provide you with all of the safety info as well as excellent directions, maps, informational brochures to accompany your ride. And that’s before you see the spectacular sites that this beautiful corner of the world offers. 10/10 experience. Thank you so much!

    Seamus was amazing! The weather forecast for the day of our tour was not great. I was in contact with Seamus the night before and he could not have been any nicer. We had a window of “good” weather to go out and he offered to open the shop early for us to get out and take advantage of it. We were grateful! We only did a part of the “tour” but what we did see at the first couple of tour stops was amazing. The equipment is top notch and easy to use. Dry bags and everything you need included. We are casual bikers and this was perfect for an activity while in Ireland . If only the weather had cooperated! Highly recommend!

    Great trip with Ireland by Bike. Bikes were great, wonderful B and Bs, directions good (GPS and cue sheets,) and gorgeous scenery. Felt like we saw the real Ireland. Rides were a great length - long enough to see things but short enough to stop, chat, take detours, photos, etc. Seamus and Nora thought of every detail, and even arranged for incredible weather. Liked the ebikes given the steeply rolling roads. Would recommend to anyone. Thanks for a great trip!

    Great day. The electric bikes are a game changer for the hills of Donegal. All very straightforward even for cycling novices. Great service from Seamus. Obviously the local scenery is stunning but you probably already know that. We did the route recommended by Seamus. Took about 6 hours and we stopped and spent time at all the spots you would want to. Highly recommend and great fun. 👍
