If anyone is touring in Ireland at the moment or planning a tour you are welcome to come along to Leitrim Cycling Festival in the northwest of the country. It runs from the 17th to the 19th of September in the small picturesque village of Kiltyclogher. It's a beautiful part of the country off the beaten track with a quiet network of roads that are ideal for cycling. There is camping available and lots of family friendly events, music, art, and food!

Hi Laura, thanks for the info, very great idea. Never been to Ireland, but am planning a cycling tour around the country. Not sure if I will manage this year, but latest the next one shall work out. Would you know more exact dates for 2022?
The dates for this years festival are 20th to 22nd of May 2022. It would be great if you could make it! Best of luck planning your tour around Ireland. If you need somewhere to stay when/if you're in the North West drop me a line.
All the best,
Thanks a lot Laura. Will see what can be done. All the best, Henryk
