Here are a selection of itineraries of different distances and duration - some are within cities and can be walked; the rest cycled or driven. They will hopefully provide you with ideas and inspiration. We always advise that you never try to pack too much into an itinerary - leave the time to relax and to absorb it all and to pick the stop-off places you feel will be of real interest to you. Gauge your time, as you can be certain there will be some attractions along your route that will take an hour or two to experience. We also encourage you to divert sometimes from your tour to explore the hidden Ireland. You just never know what you will find. If you have any suggestions for a tour or have found somewhere special that should be on an itinerary, do email us and let us know.
Lakelands – 2 Day Tour of Lough Key and Lough Allen
Start Location: Boyle, Co. Roscommon
The island-studded Lough Key is arguably the most beautiful lake on the River Shannon, while the rugged surrounds of Lough Allen boast the iron mountain of Sliabh an Iarainn to the east and the old coal hills of Arigna along its western shore.
