Ruth was lovely and an excellent tour guide. Myself and 5 friends booked in last week and had such a great time. Views were beautiful. Would highly recommend this tour.- Patricia G
Had a great afternoon touring around the Old Head of Kinsale with Ruth. One nervous cyclist and she made us both feel very comfortable. She had some good tips for the area and filled us in on the surroundings.- SineadV
My mother and I did the half-day Wild Coast Tour with Ruth on a beautiful day at the end of September. It was a lovely scenic ride, starting at the beautiful Old Head of Kinsale, through beaches along the coast, and then into a small nearby town for a treat. Ruth was a great tour guide with good knowledge of the area. The route offered a couple of optional hills, and it was nice to have the choice to do these. The bikes were really nice hybrid models. I’d highly recommend a cycling tour with Ruth, and would love to return and do the multi-day self led tour she offers!- Jilian M
I can confidently say that Ruth and her bike tours are simply incredible! The first tour was a few hour tour of the Old Head of Kinsale with the whole family (Baby Boomer parents and four adult children). Ruth masterfully sized up the group and led a tour from the Lusitania Museum to Ballenspittle and back where everyone had a great experience. The country side and seaside is so beautiful and the bikes and equipment (helmets and vests, water and locks) were all in perfect condition. Ruth’s tours were gauged perfectly for us. Everyone had fun, saw a lot, and really got a great view of the Irish coastline.- BorregoSailor
