The Sheefrey Pass Bike Tour
"Fabulous! If you have an opportunity to do this bike tour, do it! We were a group of four...all in our late 50's. Only one rides bikes regularly. We all had a ball. These electric bikes are amazing. They're easy enough to figure out and going up hills is a breeze. This is a perfect way to really see the spectacular scenery. We rode on a small country road, so only saw a car or two the entire time. Our tour guide was fantastic as well. This was a real highlight of our trip to Ireland."..."
