A quote from The Irish Poet, Seamus Heaney in 1972. It refers to the 'Troubles' in Northern Ireland at a time when they were at their most deadly. Well...summer has come to Northern Ireland and its treasures are for the exploring! For such a small country there is a remarkable diversity in landscape. From the coastal vistas of the Giants Causeway Coast to the valleys & dales of the Antrim Glens to the majestic Mourne Mountains. If you're an active cyclist you will love N. Ireland for its absorbing cycling - the terrain is anything but flat. Mix in homely villages, bustling towns, lively pubs and foot-tapping music and you have a cycle tour to remember!
