Reviewed August 10th, 2014We rented a house in inishowen for a few weeks and decided to rent bikes during our stay there. Cycle inishowen delivered to our door with all the gear we needed and with perfectly maintained bikes and maps. We were able to tour around our area at our own leisure, bike to the local beaches, stores and just explore. Although being from Canada it was a little intimidating biking on roads with no shoulders we found the drivers very accommodating. A great way to see the area and a great little business.
Our bicycles are quality Ridgeback velocity hybrids with Shimano components. We talk you through the basics of gears, brakes and road safety to make sure you’re comfortable with the equipment before you go on your way. Each bike is supplied with helmet and high visibility vest for your safety. You also get a lock, panniers, handlebar bag, pump, puncture repair kit and discounts redeemable at local businesses and attractions. Every customer gets the loan of an Ordnance survey map of the area as well as a small booklet of suggested routes prepared by Cycle Inishowen. Cycling is a great family activity and we have a wide range of accessories for children including trailers and child seats available for a small fee.
A Picnic Lunch prepared by Patisserie de Pascal in Carndonagh can be added to your bike hire which we will deliver out to you with the bikes or will be waiting for you when you come to collect from the office. The Picnic Lunch consists of a choice of sandwiches, cake and a drink. View Menu here and tell us what you would like when booking.

A must do in Inishowen!

This is a great day out for young and old. Cycle Inishowen can drive to your location to provide you with bikes or you can cycle to your destination and get a lift back home again. Oggy and Blaise were very friendly and helpful and it was great value to rent the bikes for the day (we were a group of 5 and got discount.) If you are visiting the area or even if you live in Inishowen you should def give this a go!

3 Night Tour - €450
Perfect for those who want the challenge of cycling to the end of the country; this is a short break with a large sense of achievement. Three nights accommodation and evening meals,accompanied by two days cycling in which you will cover 75km. This package has a good mix of different terrain levels and is a great taster of all the area has to offer.
5 Night Tour - €725
The five night package is a shorter version of the seven night itinerary and has four days of cycling covering 130km. This tour follows the peninsula along the same routes as the longer holiday but does not cover a complete loop. Starting at the neck of the peninsula, in Burt, the five night tour brings our cyclists up the west side of the peninsula, finishing with a trip to Malin Head, the most northerly point of Ireland.
7 Night Tour - €995
Our seven night itinerary is designed as a circuit to cover the whole peninsula (200km approx) and is our recommended holiday. Inishowen is often described as ‘Ireland in Miniature’ and this route shows that to best advantage. For those who want to really explore Inishowen and get a true feel for the area the seven night itinerary is the best option. This gives you plenty of time to make the most of your Donegal adventure and see the sights at your leisure – with plenty of cycling too!
