Stage 7. Lahinch to Galway

Okay, there are no excuses for this one – this is the flattest section of the whole Wild Atlantic Way and it passes through scenery that you won’t find anywhere else in the world. You’d be mad to miss it! We’ll spend most of the day cruising through the Burren (Ireland’s Great Rock) where some of the island’s most unusual and striking scenery will roll out before us.

We’ll keep the beautiful Burren landscape on our right and the wild Atlantic Ocean of Galway Bay on our left so you’ll be surrounded on all sides by the sheer beauty of the Wild Atlantic Way. The bike is the best way to experience the Burren’s eerie lunar landscape; we’ll fly along the quiet coast road where the Atlantic waves crash up against the rugged rock before freewheeling into Ballyvaughan for our famous lunch stop. The warm welcome in the village and a lunch of homemade seafood chowder, fresh fish and organic local meats are a perfect complement to the wildness of the Burren landscape!

After lunch, we’ll head off again towards Kinvara, one of our favourite villages along the Wild Atlantic Way where we’ll stop for coffee and maybe a sweet treat before taking to the road again and making our way to Galway.
