White Rose Tour 6 Tour of Ireland
Mapsman have teamed up with fellow adventurers and motorcycle touring company White Rose Tours to provide a suggestion of additional maps and guides to accompany their tours for 2018.
To be expected from a quality tour operator, White Rose Tours provide detailed turn by turn instructions and GPS maps for the tour but we believe it is always useful to have a map or two as well.
Our suggestions for this tour are:

Join us on our circular tour of Ireland
This tour was extremly popular when we did it a few years ago, unfortunately I missed it due to illness, so I thought the time had come to do it again.
The tour spends a night in Galloway & Dumfries before taking a ferry to Northern Ireland. Having ridden the beautiful Antrim Coast we enter Donegal to start our anti-clockwise tour around Southern Ireland. Passing through Donegal we continue down the Atlantic coast through Sligo, County Mayo and Galway and across the Shannon River into County Clare. We ride the Dingle Peninsula before stopping a couple of nights at the popular tourist town of Killarney. A free day allows you to explore further, and the opportunity to ride the famous 'Ring of Kerry'. The tour continues onto the Beara Peninsula before returning via Cork and Wexford to Rosslare where we catch the ferry home.
It is no accident that we have taken this route, as the Atlantic coast side of both Ireland offers the very best of scenery and interesting roads and now is perhaps best known as the 'Wild Atlantic Way'.
This tour will appeal to all riders alike. Being an escorted tour, we provide route instructions and Garmin waypoints for those wanting to ride independently, however, for those new to touring, the guides are quite happy to escort you each step of the way.For more information on this tour or to book go to
