Castles of Ireland Motorcycle Tour

Our Castles Tour is a very special limited availability tour – offering a magical experience!

Best suited for those wishing to take the pace more slowly and relax in exquisite surroundings, often nestled away in remote parts of Ireland.

As the availability on Irish Castles is quite limited, we design these tours on a bespoke basis, typically staying 2 nights in each castle.

Your first and last night is in the 4 star hotel & Spa, The Brehon with 3 x 2 night stays in Irish Castles.

We have selected riding routes with an emphasis on scenery and being off the beaten path. Of course the choice is yours, but you will have an option to shorten the day’s ride should you wish to arrive at your destination earlier.
