Independent Cycle Tours
For the first time in Ireland you can go on a multi-day cycling holiday with family and friends away from traffic. With 130 km of towpath to explore, the Royal Canal Greenway has as adventure for everyone. We have made it easy for you to organise your own independent cycle tour and recommend three to four days to enjoy the full length of the Royal Canal Greenway. There is a wide range of accommodation to suit all budgets, from bespoke B&B’s and guesthouses to four star luxury hotels, the choice is yours.
- Book your bikes and panniers
Bike can be rented from Maynooth, Kildare or Clondra, Longford for your cycle tour. There will be a pickup or drop off charge of €25 per bike with a minimum of four bikes. Please advise us when booking your bikes and we can arrange collection. If there are only two people, bikes can be returned to Maynooth on the Dublin to Sligo intercity train. Please note only two bikes are allowed per train and need to be reserved online when booking your train ticket.

The accommodation listed below has been carefully selected to appeal to all budgets. We would recommend booking your accommodation early to avoid disappointment.
- Luggage Transfers
As we are committed to keeping our carbon footprint to a minimum, we encourage you to consider carefully whether you want to avail of our luggage transfer service. We do offer luggage transfer between accommodation each day and these can workout quite expensive for individuals, couples or small groups. We do encourage guests to pack light and carry their luggage in panniers on the bike. If you do choose this option, and you have extra baggage that you do not need for the cycling trip, we can arrange to move this from the starting point to your destination.
