THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED.

With hundreds of scenic roads and tracks ripe for exploring, there's no better way to see the Irish countryside than on two wheels. Enter this competition and you could be the lucky winner of an IrelandWays.com cycling trip for two...

We're giving one lucky pair the chance to cycle one of the longest traffic-free, off-road trails in Ireland, taking in views of the North Atlantic from the dramatic coastline, and passing the picturesque Seven Arches Bridge in Newport.

The Prize

We've teamed up with IrelandWays.com to give away a five-night self-guided cycling trip for two along the Wild Atlantic Way. Starting in the designated heritage town of Westport in County Mayo, then cycling along the Great Western Greenway, part of the Wild Atlantic Way, you'll pass over the Black Oak river and onto a circuit of Achill Island, with its towering cliffs and Blue Flag beaches, before heading back to Westport to finish the tour. The prize includes:

  • Five nights' accommodation on a bed & breakfast basis
  • Bike rental
  • Luggage transfers between hotels
  • You can see the full itinerary here
