Staying in Derry? No trip to this part of the world is complete without a visit to Ireland’s northernmost point; Malin Head. Cycle Inishowen have introduced a special offer on bike hire for our Derry/Londonderry day visitors of just €12/£10. This means that you can get a return bus to Carndonagh (€8) and hire a bike to cycle up to Malin Head for just €20. The views out across the open Atlantic Ocean are truly breathtaking and you have a good chance of seeing basking sharks, with the area being used to monitor their migrations. There are also special lunch offers exclusive to Cycle Inishowen customers at the Seaview Tavern.
We are easy to get to. Simply catch the 8.55am bus from Patrick Street and get off in Carndonagh. When you get off the bus turn back in the direction it came from and you will see the Cycle Inishowen office on the left, on Chapel Street. We will provide you with a bike, helmet and any other equipment you require, as well as a map and suggested route. You then have the whole day to explore the area up to Malin Head. It is a 50km round trip in total so you can take it at your leisure. The bus back to Derry/Londonderry is at 4.15pm.
Advance booking is recommended to avoid disappointment. You can book online or by phone/text to +353 (0)87 9722 532 and we will send a confirmation message back.
NEW TO THIS TOUR: Add a picnic lunch prepared by Patisserie de Pascal in Carndonagh to take with you. A choice of sandwich, cake and drink for only €5. See Menu.

Late last night we decided to cycle Inishowen today. I left a phone message, expecting that with no notice, the chances of cycling were poor. But I got a call back from Blaise. It was a scramble but we took the bus from Derry and the timing all worked out.
Michael and Blaise were cheerful and helpful. The bikes are hybrid, well serviced and tuned. ( I notice these things as a breakdown can ruin a trip).
What a day! The weather was perfect. We cycled to Malin Head and back from Carndonagh. Scenery was spectacular.
