It is fair to say that for a leisurely day out it is hard to beat cycling in Killarney going around our beautiful National Park. There are numerous cycling routes around Killarney and many designated tar covered cycling paths.
A high light in cycling in Killarney around National Park is taking a round trip to the Gap of Dunloe. This is not a usual type of cycle route but it is a most enjoyable one.
If you decide to cycle around the National Park via Muckross and Torc Waterfall and then back through the Black Valley and the Gap of Dunloe you can expect to cover a worthwhile 45km.
You can choose a more leisurely route and take a boat from Ross Castle through the Meeting of the Waters to Lord Brandons Cottage and cycle the most breath taking route in Killarney through the Black Valley a rather steep climb onto Molls Gap and then for a downhill jaunt back into Killarney town.
When you are with us at the 19th Green guest house you are actually on one of Killarney most scenic cycle paths – The Fossa Way. From our front gate you are on a loop that takes you along the Deenagh River, over the Cnoc Na Ri viewing point with the spectacular views of Lough Lein and the Mac Gillacuddy Reeks Mountains as a back drop.
Should you wish to venture further afield while staying at the 19th Green guest house there are numerous options for cycling in Kerry – The Dingle Peninsula is a 42 km cycling route in Kerry taking in Sleah Head, Ventry and Dunquin – a marvellous cycle
