Welcome to the Aran Islands Bike Tours! Join us on one of our fully guided cycling day tours of the three Aran Islands!
The Aran Islands are found in the middle of Galway Bay, approximately 10 kilometres north of County Clare.
The largest of the three, Inishmor, meaning big Island, lies to the north and is very popular spot for visitors all year round, while Inishmaan, (meaning middle Island) is the most quiet and traditional of the Islands. Inisheer, meaning the eastern Island, is the smallest and nearest to County Clare and the Cliffs of Moher.
Explore these thriving islands’ history, archaeology, nature and culture with a warm welcome from local guides, Patrick & Kelly and our crew.
We want you to enjoy your holidays, so we take care of everything! Our tours are full day tours, with ferry ticket, packed lunch, bikes, and guides all included.
For day trippers, the tour begins and ends at the Doolin ferry terminal or for those choosing to enjoy the Islands a bit longer, we can meet you on the ferry terminal on the Islands as well.
Tours are relaxed and informal and we aim to tailor the pace and focus to the needs of the group.
Galway County Council, along with the Department of the Environment and Roinn na Gaeltachta, have announced a new plan to address the danger of cliff erosion on the Aran Islands.
After a number of engineers reports it has been decided that the best and most cost effective way of preserving this incredible natural phenomenon, is to have the more important parts of the cliffs, plastered.
As there are over ten miles of cliffs on the three islands, it has been decided that the work will be confined, for now, to the cliffs under the two great island cliff edge forts, Dún Aengus and Dún Dubhchatair (Black Fort)
The excessive cost of scaffolding has ruled out this traditional method of plastering and the authorities have now settled on a method which involves plasterers abseiling down the cliffs.
They have accepted a tender from the vastly experienced Connemara based construction company, Aibreain Ó hAmadán Teoranta, and it is hoped that the first stage of this conservation project will be completed before the winter storms arrive. ... See MoreSee Less
