Hi there

We are planning our holidays for this summer and we thought that Ireland could be a very nice and interesting destination. We also though that renting a motorbike after we get there (Dublin) it could be a good way to know the country. Then, what I would like to ask you for are some indications about the following:

-Where to rent a motorbike.

-Routes to drive around the country.

-Places or cities to visit

-And finally, we would appreciate some advices about accomodation.

Many thanks in advance.

Hello, Pablo!

Welcome to the Community.

Wow, what a way to be exploring the Emerald Isle!  This sounds very exciting.  

There is some helpful information with regards to renting a motorcycle on the Vehicle Rental section of the website.  You are able to search for motorcycle rental companies in Ireland here.

I would also like to recommend browsing the ready-made itineraries that are available to gather some great touring ideas.  You've mentioned that you will be arriving in Dublin.  Perhaps exploring Ireland's Ancient East would be a great starting point.

In terms of accommodation, feel free to browse what accommodation venues are available, depending on where you will be visiting and the type of preferred accommodation.

I'm sure that our community members will also have some very helpful suggestions and tips to provide.  This really does sound wonderful.

All the best,

Colin

Why not consider an visit to the beautiful City of Armagh?  One of the stand out attractions in Armagh is the fabulous Navan Centre & Fort.  The Navan Fort is from where the ancient Kings of Ulster ruled, and is one of Ireland's most famous and important archaeological sites, home of the famous Red Branch Knights and Ulster Cycle of tales, and is a place were myth and reality meet.



See www.navan.com for everything about the Centre.

We would love the opportunity to welcome you to our home - Shola Coach House B&B is a 5-star luxury bed and breakfast located just a mile from Portrush and close to lots must see attractions on the North Coast - the Giant's Causeway, Bushmills Whiskey Distillery, Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge and Dunluce Castle are just a few.

Look forward to welcoming you to Shola.

Happy planning

Hi Pablo,

The Causeway Coast and Glens is an ideal place to explore by motorbike.

The A2 Causeway Coastal Route heading north from Belfast on the east coast passes by sandy
beaches, ancient castles, unique geological features and seaward views of islands and Scotland beyond.  Travel through the magnificent Antrim Glens and follow the shoreline through bustling market towns and quiet villages making your way towards the North Antrim Coast, home to Northern Ireland’s only UNESCO World Heritage Site – The Giant’s Causeway. For full details of the Causeway Coastal Route and suggested itineraries visit www.visitcausewaycoastandglens.com or contact ourselves in the Coleraine Visitor Information Centre (colerainevic@causewaycoastandglens.gov.uk) and we will be happy to help. We can also book accommodation for you.
The Causeway Coastal Route is home to several of the locations in the HBO hit series Game of Thrones including Downhill Beach, Mussenden Temple, Ballintoy Harbour, Carrick-a-Rede and Cushendun Caves.
If you are keen bikers you may already know that the area has a long association with motorbike racing and each year during the month of May the North West 200 attracts some of the world's best riders who compete on the open roads between Portrush, Portstewart and Coleraine. There is also a motorbike Museum in Ballymoney.

I hope you have a great road trip in Ireland!

Kind Regards,
Anne
Coleraine Visitor Information Centre

Hi Pablo

Sounds like an exciting trip and I'm sure you'll get to see some of the best places in Ireland. If you are thinking of travelling north then we would like to make you aware of what the Walled City of Derry-Londonderry has to offer. Situated on the doorstep of the Wild Atlantic Way and the Causeway Coastal Route, the Walled City of Derry-Londonderry is a place steeped in history and culture. Many attractions help to emphasise this such as the 17th Century City Walls, Guildhall, World Famous Murals, St Columb’s Cathedral as well as many fascinating museums and exhibitions. The city also provides great options for tours, leisure, shopping and dining. With a wide variety of hotels, B&B's, guesthouses and hostels the city also provides excellent accommodation options if you choose to spend the night here. More detailed information on what the city has to offer can be found in our official visitor guide here.

We would also invite you to contact us should you have any inquiries or questions at all. We are more than happy to help. Our details are:
