Cycling South Leinster

Great Road Routes

South Leinster has a surprising variety of terrain, boasting canals, blanket bogs, rolling woodlands, golden beaches and brilliant green pastures interspersed with fields of golden barley. Quiet roads with excellent surfaces make this beautiful corner of Ireland perfect for exploring by bike, and the abundance of great climbs and descents, notably in the Slieve Bloom and Blackstairs Mountains, adds some exciting challenges.

A journey through this picturesque countryside is also a trip through the ages, with many historical places of interest along the way. Break your journey with pit stops at round towers, restore mansions and attractive gardens like Emo Court, traditional lighthouses such as Hook Lighthouse, or the birthplaces and graves of great Irish figures like Shackleton and Wolfe Tone.

There are graded routes to suit all abilities and each route is illustrated with a colour map, photos, a gradient graph, and key facts and statistics. Information is also provided on the many natural landmarks and historical sites en route. Each trip guarantees a terrific day out for the curious cyclist.
