IOM Manx GP - & Wild Atlantic Way Motorcycle Tour

Octane fuelled racing on the famous Isle of Man followed by a super coastal ride of Ireland's north western parts of The Wild Atlantic Way.

This very special motorcycle tour combines our Classic Wild Atlantic Way motorcycle tour with the Isle of Man MANX GP on the famous TT course. It’s been designed for riders who want to ride in style, see the best of the West coast of Ireland, and spend a a full week soaking up the atmosphere at the The Isle of Man MANX GP festival. It’s such a great event – reserved for the purists! 

Start and finish your tour close to Dublin International Airport in Malahide, just 15 min from our Lemonrock HQ.

The tour leaves from Dublin port to ferry across to the Isle of Man.  Spend 7 nights in a 4 star hotel centrally located on the promenade in Douglas. On your return, you can unwind by riding around Ireland’s famous Wild Atlantic route.

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.

Upon returning to Ireland, the tour heads west to the coast and brings you northwards along the Wild Atlantic Way, before riding the coastal route in Northern Ireland to Belfast. Finally returning to Dublin. Truly a trip to be remembered!

    • Mulraney – acclaimed as Ireland’s best small tourist town, a European Destination of Excellence – it is a superb stop for taking a walk on the beach and enjoying the spectacular views.
    • Achill Island – Achill has a long history of human settlement and there is evidence that Achill was inhabited as many as 5,000 years ago. Megalithic tombs and promontory forts testifying to this can be seen at Slievemore, along the Atlantic Drive and on Achill Beg Island.
    • Kildamhnait Castle is a 15th century tower house associated with the O’ Malley Clan, who were once a ruling family of Achill. Grace O’ Malley, or Granuaile, the most famous of the O’ Malley’s was born in Clare Island around 1530. Her father was the chieftain of the barony of Murrisk. The O’Malleys were a powerful sea faring family, who traded widely and refused to submit to English rule. Grace became a fearless leader and gained fame as a sea captain and pirate.

    • The route takes you up as far as Gweedore and into Glenveagh National Park
  • Departing from Donegal, you’re riding north to the Innisowen Peninsula, which is home to the most northerly part of Ireland – Malin Head.
  • We’re taking the eastern side of  the peninsula and meeting the short ferry to Greencastle. The ferry will take you into Northern Ireland where the speed signs are now in Miles per Hour – so be warned! You’ll also need some Sterling currency for your few days in Northern Ireland.
  • The coast road takes you over to Portstewart and Portrush, home to the famous North West 200 Road Races – you’ll be riding on the famous circuit, but mind your speed!

  • Today’s ride will bring you back cross the border towards Carlingford Lough.

  • We’ve picked out some nice riding routes which will bring you through Shercock and on down into the picturesque village of Moynalty.
  • From here we have selected another twisty riding road which brings you through Kells and into Slane. Slane is famous for its concerts at Slane Castle and its whiskey.
  • The road follows the Boyne Valley into Navan and we take a slight detour to the Hill of Tara. It contains a number of ancient monuments, and, according to tradition, was the seat of the High King of Ireland.
  • Back onto the Boyne Valley until you arrive at the heritage town of Trim, where you will spend your final night. Trim is home to Ireland’s earliest and one of Europe’s largest Norman Castles. This castle featured in the movie, Braveheart – you can ask some of the locals in the pubs if they starred in the movie!
