The Belfast Castle and Saint Anne Square are two of the other iconic places.Day 2: Carrickfergus & Gobbins Cliff PathYou have to wake up early this morning because one of the longest days of the tour is waiting for you.

Following the coastline up north you arrive in Larne, where we recommend you park the bicycle to walk along the Gobbins Cliff path.Day 3: Glenarm & GlenariffToday you’ll ride through the Coast Road that brings you to Glenarm, where you can see a lovely castle built in 1636. After Glenarm we arrive in the village of Glenariff. It is one of the most beautiful villages of the Antrim Coast. At the end of the day you arrive in Cushendall; after a long day of cycling, relax in the town, have a pint or visit the Curfew Tower, which was once a prison. Day 4: Torr Road & BallycastleCross the River Glendun to leave Cushendun and head towards Ballycastle.

Another tourist attraction is the impressive Rathlin Lighthouse on the west side of the island.

If you have enough energy once you reach Bushmills Whiskey Distillery, take a tour!Day 7: Return to DublinAfter a hearty Irish breakfast, it is time to make our way back to Dublin.
