Cycle the Three Rings (Leisure Cycle)

Available from:

21st April 2019 – 29th September 2019

The Ring of Beara, The Skellig Ring and the Ring of Kerry are known locally as the Three Rings. This is Wild Atlantic Way leisure cycling at its best!

The scenery in County Kerry is second to none and Kerry is not referred to as the Kingdom for nothing. The rugged coastline here in South West Ireland rivals anything to be found anywhere in the world, which makes it a must see destination for cyclists. This trip is accompanied by a roadside assistance vehicle for cyclists “in need”, and also includes a bike mechanic and a post spin massage therapist.
