Day 1 - RetroVentures HQ Co. Limerick to Killarney Co. Kerry
230km / 145mi / 4.5hrs riding time
Due to its short duration, this tour is suited to those who will already be in Ireland, rather than flying in. With this in mind, you may arrive direct at the RetroVentures HQ or we will arrange a transfer for you from Adare, Co. Limerick or Limerick City (both included in the price). We must arrive at RetroVentures HQ by 9am for an 10am departure.
Here you'll get introduced to your retro ride. Tea, coffee and refreshments will be served. After a tour and safety briefing, you'll hit the road for your first ride heading west. You'll travel via the Foynes Flying Boat Museum, Tarbert, Listowell, Dingle Peninsular, up, up and over the Conor Pass, and down into the seaside town of Dingle. From here you will head west on the Slea Head drive for the most spectacular scenery, then east via Inch Strand to Killarney Town.
Killarney has a wealth of shops, restaurants, pubs and live music to enjoy.
Day 2 – Killarney Co. Kerry to Killarney Co. Kerry
260km / 165mi / 5.5hrs riding time
You'll leave Killarney bright and early heading through the Killarney National Park on route to Moll's Gap. You'll take the lesser known Black Valley road to the breathtaking Gap of Dunloe. From here you will join the Ring of Kerry via the Glencar National Park and Blackstones towards Glenbeigh, Mountain Stage, Portmagee Harbour, Valencia Island, Geokaun Mountain, Bray Head, and onwards through Kerry Cliffs, Waterville and the stunning Killarney National Park back to your accommodation for a second night.
Day 3 - Killarney Co. Kerry to RetroVentures HQ Co. Limerick
240km / 155mi / 5.5hrs riding
You'll head to the pretty town of Kenmare this morning, and then snake your way over the mountains to Glengarriff where you can take a short break and enjoy this lovely coastal town. From here you will head west again to pick up the famous Healy Pass - one of the country's best motorcycle routes, and then onwards to the quaint Kilmakillogue Harbour where a nice pub awaits for lunch.
Refreshed, you will head back towards base via Kenmare for a shopping browse, Kilgarvan and Killarney.
Once back at the RetroVentures HQ, you can return your bike, unload your luggage, get 'de-briefed', and then you’ll be given the option of a final night’s stay in Adare with transfer, or a transfer to your next destination, whether that be the airport or another part of Ireland to continue your holidays. For those flying out the next day, we can arrange overnight accommodation in Adare or at the airport and a transfer to the airport. Transfers to Adare, or Limerick City or Shannon airport are included but a 3rd night’s accommodation will be extra.
