Cycling < Back
Cyclists keen to experience Loop Head on two wheels will be relieved to learn that the peninsula has a very gently undulating topography, with almost no daunting hills. The Loop Head Cycleway is a 65km circuit along the coast roads starting and ending in Kilkee, hugging the shores of the Shannon to the south and the Atlantic to the North. Take it in stages, staying in any of the guesthouses along the way, and arrange to have your bags transported from stop to stop.
Touring bikes are available for hire from Williams Hardware, Kilkee. You’ll also be able to rent helmets, locks (though theft is unusual on Loop Head), and child seats, and you’ll be given a free map. And if you prefer a guided adventure, Bog Road Bike Tours can offer full-day or half-day expeditions, as well as tailor-made tours of from two to five days, including accommodation, food, bike hire, airport pick-up and guide.
