What you'll do
You can come up to our base in the Galtee Moutains (one hour drive from Cork City) and we will ride the bikes around the Galtee Castle Woods and then up into the mountains and then Hike into the Galtee Mountains, the highest inland mountain range in Ireland. The bikes are Rad Rhino fat tyre electric bikes with plenty of torque to help you up the hills and enjoy the downhills. I will share my knowledge of the local area while we cruise the trails and hike in the mountain. We will picnic with a hot drink and healthy food in the mountains with beautiful views. We also have accommodation available in a wooden yurt or a converted horse truck. Both can sleep up to 4 people each. https://www.airbnb.ie/rooms/5239784 https://www.airbnb.ie/rooms/20274465
