What Is There To See?
The Midlands can often be overlooked when it comes to Ireland’s big tourist attractions; however there are many hidden gems that are easily accessible and well worth a visit. Why not hire bikes and bring them with you as you cruise the Shannon on your boat exploring the best of what the Midlands has to offer. You can choose from any of our recommended heritage sites and map routes of the local area or decide your own areas of interest. Take a spin on the ‘Old Rail Trail’ Athlone to Mullingar greenway, stroll around the Napoleonic Fortifications in Shannonbridge while on your way to the world famous monastic settlement of Clonmacnoise; witness the beautiful views of Lough Ree from Portlick, visit the 13th century abandoned medieval town of Rinn Duin located on a peninsula jutting out into Lough Ree; tour the wonderful Slieve Bloom Mountains or simply cycle alongside the Grand Canal. The possibilities are endless. There is no need to worry about distance or terrain either as we also have electric bikes available in our shops for rent. Whether sightseeing and tourist attractions are your thing or you simply want a stress-free day out with the family, cycling at your own pace and leisure allows you to enjoy life on a bike.
