Cycle the Sally Gap…
Have you thought about cycling the Sally Gap, but thought it might just be too difficult, well we have the solution for you – the cycle begins at the top of the Sally Gap!
Included Gear: brand new Trek bicycles, new bicycle helmets, hi-viz jackets, lock and safety kit.
The cycle begins with amazing views at the top of the Sally Gap. From here you will cycle mostly downhill back to Laragh. At Laragh you may decide to grab some lunch at Lynham’s, or maybe you would prefer to pack a picnic. After lunch you can visit Glendalough (the 2nd most visited site in Ireland), or you may decide to head back towards Rathdrum, stopping at the Wool factory on the way back.
The beauty of the cycle is that you can take it at your own pace and visit only the sites you want to see. You can stop to take pictures and enjoy the scenery as you please. The cycle begins at 10.30 a.m. and you have until 8 p.m. to return to the campsite, so enjoy the day!
Kayak the Avonmore River … The tour finishes right on our own beach! Some kayak experience is necessary. You must signup for the tour the day before. The journey lasts approximately 1.5 to 4 hours (you may want to stop halfway and lay on the beach) Each group will be briefed the night before. All gear is provided – kayak, paddle, helmet and life jackets. Single and double sit-on-top kayaks available – extremely safe.
If you love the water, then you will love this tour! There’s nothing more relaxing then floating down the river listening to the birds sing while watching the fish jump out of the water.
Both of these specials are offered during April, May, June and September
