I simply love exploring and the bicycle. It’s a beautiful world out there and there couldn’t be a better way to explore than on 2 wheels. I want to share my passions, that’s why I’ve put together this blog about traveling and cycling in the West of Ireland. Let me know what you think about my little collection of travel tips & cycling routes around Mayo & Sligo.

Cycling around around Mayo and Sligo

Cycling Route Mayo Sligo Loop
Peaceful Lough Easky

From the river – to the lakes – to the sea. This beautiful 76km loop could easily be the best cycling route in Mayo and Sligo.
Start cycling from Ballina and the route will take you through the windy gap by Lough Talt, over to Lough Easkey and back along the Sligo coast. This part of the Mayo and Sligo countryside is amazingly beautiful and completely off the beaten track. The roads are quiet except for lots of sheep traffic. The lakes are a great spot for a swim or a little picnic. Cycling back along the coast you will be passing through the picturesque seaside villages Easky & Enniscrone. Take the opportunity for a refreshing dip in the sea or a relaxed coffee on the beach, before heading back along the Coast road into Ballina.

What to do in Enniscrone?

Enniscrone is the perfect destination for a daytrip from Ballina and a great pitstop on this cycling route through Sligo. Check out ’10 things to do in Enniscrone’ for more information.
