Bike Hire

Because we’re located just 400m from the Wild Atlantic Way, renting a bicycle during your stay at Goleen Harbour is the perfect way to experience the stunning coastal landscape your way and in your own time.

When you visit, experience the wild and natural scenery of the rugged Wild Atlantic Way by renting a bicycle and taking yourself off around the winding ‘boreens’ (that’s Gaelic for ‘small country roads’) of Goleen. Enjoy the sensation of the fresh Atlantic Sea breeze blowing into your face, and experience the wonder of undisturbed silence, broken only by the sounds of nature.

The Mizen Peninsula offers some of the best cycling roads and routes anywhere in Ireland, with breathtaking scenery at every turn, and the spectacular coastline always in view. Spin out to Mizen Head and the Wild Atlantic Way discovery point and stay a while to soak up the scenery, take a few snaps and experience the beauty of your natural surroundings.

From here, traverse the iconic bridge and pay a visit to the fascinating lighthouse museum, to learn about the history of the area in a fun and visual way. Hop back on the bike and head to Barleycove beach, before stopping for a pint and a bite to eat in the stunning town of Crookhaven.

Note: All our bikes come with helmets and locks, and we have a great selection of bikes to suit all ages and cycling levels             
       

Experience highlights

  • Stayed a week at the area so me and my husband decided to rent bikes. That was a perfect thing to do here and Matt’s hybrids were brilliant for these roads. The service was also excellent and everything went very smoothly, so we can warmly recommend Goleen harbour for bike hire. Thanks Matt for all your help in making our holiday week perfect.
