The popularity of cycling in Ireland is growing rapidly. According to the Irish Sports Council, over 2 million people cycle regularly.

They’re probably tempted by the 100,000 kilometre network of roads and the fact that not many people live here so the roads aren’t choked with cars. In fact, Ireland is one of the least densely populated countries in Europe.

While you can’t expect to find the cycling infrastructure of its European friends, the roads are largely of the peaceful, local variety. This makes a cycling holiday in Ireland an attractive prospect.

Just be prepared to encounter four seasons of weather in one day!
