I had a great time with you in Ireland. It was definitely the highlight of my trip. I don’t think I will make it back next year but please keep me posted on your tours as I would like to do the southern half sometime and maybe even take in the North West 200.

Peter Hutchin :
Thanks for the video. Brings back good memories of a great tour.
The tour to my mind equals any tours I’ve done in mainland Europe and it’s closer to home! I will recommend Wild Irish to any tours discussion.
Many thanks for your patience and consideration. Your skill at keeping your anchor in tow are to be commended!
Best wishes Peter and Caroline July 2019
Really good to hear from you, many thanks for the video, it really captures the holiday. Good to show Heather, my wife. We will be back !!!!
Thank you for a great week July 2019
Just dropping a line to say a big Thank You for the very enjoyable Whole Way Round Tour we did last week.Having done quite a number of tours over the last decade with different of operators, I think that you have got it right. The group was not large, so we didn’t get strung out all over the place. The accommodation was good, I would happily have stayed longer in all of them. You took us on a variety of roads that were scenic, challenging and showed some of the most charming towns. Above all you made us all feel most welcome and you did your best for us to get the most from our holiday. We now consider you a friend that we had not yet met! Strongly recommend your Tours for those who want a great time in Ireland.
Best wishes, Peter and Janice.
Ride Safe! July 2019
Paul FitzGerald led 7 of us round the South and North Wild Atlantic Way. It was excellent. The routes were well planned, minimised traffic and the daily mileage was spot on. We rode a great variety of roads including twisting mountain passes, open sweepers by the coast and the Northwest 200 road circuit. The scenery ranged from pleasant to gorgeous to stunning. The hotels and the cafes we used for mid morning and mid afternoon tea breaks were well chosen. Paul is a knowledgeable, charming and conscientious group leader – he set a good pace for the group and did a fine job of recovering the very occasional stray bike. I think I can say that all of us had a great time and lots of laughs on this well planned and well organised tour. July 2019
Just returned from my second tour, organised by Paul but this time it was in a car!! Having enjoyed my motorcycle tour in 2016, I asked Paul if he knew anyone who could arrange a similar tour for car drivers, as I had some Australian relatives visiting. Paul, naturally, stepped up himself and put together his first-ever car tour and what an amazing job he did! At our request, he chose a good mix of hotels and pubs for our accommodation. His routes were, as ever, wonderfully scenic, even if some of the roads were a bit on the teeny side for a car! I have no idea how he also managed to organise the almost perfect weather we enjoyed. Thank you again, Paul.

Hello riders! We just returned from a 6 day self guided tour Paul put together for our honeymoon. What an amazing experience. The pictures we took don’t give the sceneries justice. Every hotel we stayed at was amazing and had great food. Every hotel knew it was our honeymoon and did something special for us. We really enjoyed it and we look forward to coming back with friends.

Just returned from a 6 day self guided trip with some friends where Paul booked and planned all the arrangements for us and had an amazing time. Paul met us at the ferry port and led us out of the City which was a great help . We then rode some stunning roads to our hotel with the odd detour even though Paul had mapped out the routes in advance for us , the different Garmin Sat Navs gave us different routes ! Over the next few days we had some “challenging” roads especially on my Victory Vision Tour ! Connah Pass being a memorable experience!! I have to say the hotels and food were first class and the staff in all the Hotels were really friendly and helpful. And of course the roads and stunning scenery made it an amazing trip and I am sure we will be back for more Irish hospitality and Guinness!! Thank Paul from all of us for a great trip.

“A group of 6 of us booked with Wild Irish Tours and headed to Ireland in May 2018. We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 days touring the South West. Paul had sourced fabulous Hotels with great service and food (and Guinness!) and provided us with excellent routes for our non-guided tour. He took care of everything from the moment we enquired, through to helping find a lost rider within 200 meters of arriving at Dublin.
Thank you Paul and the team – we’ll be back in the future I’m sure”.
All the best Paul.

Many thanks for a great tour.
We were impressed with your knowledge of all the good biking roads including a few detours we took due to adverse weather conditions, etc.
Thought the numbers on the tour were just about right, any more and we would have been too big a group to try and manage.
Accommodation was good with special praise for the Gourgane Barra Hotel due to its location and hospitality – it is not everywhere they encourage you to enter their kitchens when asking about ‘food’.
Daily mileage was spot on, any more miles would have been too much, especially with the number of coaches and hired cars on the roads albeit you tried to keep us away from the more crowded tourist roads.
We were lucky to get two great days of fine weather, just a shame it didn’t remain dry for the whole trip but that is a gamble we all take.
Would thoroughly recommend WildIrish Motorcycle Tours to anyone wanting a good motorbiking experience of Ireland.
Good luck with your self guided motorcycle tours of Ireland.

Frank Butler: I would like to express my gratitude to your first rate organisation of the recent Wild Atlantic Way trip. In a large group of this size there bound to be some minor niggles. However, in my opinion, the hotel accommodation, food and planned GPS routs were all excellent. Some of the planned routes can only be described as breath-taking. You just had to stop and look. Your planned itinerary of staying for 2 & 3 nights in the Hotels and exploring circular routes taking in the Wild Atlantic Way worked really well. Despite Rob’s accident, I got the general feeling that everyone enjoyed the trip very much and many said they would not hesitate to return to perhaps, complete the top end of the WAW. I looked at a number of Irish Motorcycle tour operators before I decide to go with Wild Irish. You were easily the most accommodating in organising a trip around our groups particular needs and also by far, the best value.

Paul Berry: Flew 20 hours to Ireland, hired this Triumph Tiger 800 from Phillip McCallen motorcycle hire in Lisburn, south of Belfast. Then rode 1.5 hours down to Dublin to meet up with Paul FitzGerald of WildIrish Motorcycle Tours & 2 great blokes from England. We had a fantastic tour, rode 1700 kilometres, learn’t about Ireland, introduced to black pudding (not bad), drank plenty of Guinness & Irish Ale and told lots of stories & laughs….fantastic adventure !

David Bott: Just returned from a 5 day tour enjoying the Wild Atlantic Way with Paul, aka Irish Paul, I traveled up from Swindon to Liverpool with my mate Andy and took the overnight ferry. We met up with Paul at an easy to find services very near the ferry terminal and met our fellow biker companion for the week, Paul Berry aka Aussie Paul. Paul is an excellent host and each hotel we stayed at was very comfortable and very welcoming and for those where we eat dinner, excellent food too. The rides out each day were excellent and the scenery is just stunning, Paul took us on all manor of roads including , sweeping, twistys and coastal roads. Paul kept the riding within everyone’s limits and on occasion where a good stretch of road was on offer , Paul encouraged those of us ‘ who wanted to play’ to press on ahead at our pace and meet at an agreed location ahead, he knew all the best places to stop for coffee and lunch , plus was an encyclopaedia on the various places we visited each day. I would strongly recommend any self respecting biker who wants to see and ride Ireland to use Paul services , you won’t be disappointed. And above all, Paul is a very nice genuine guy who loves bikes and showing off this beautiful country.

Roy Beniston: Hi Paul, Many many thanks for your superb Whole Way Round Tour in May of this year , I cannot praise your efforts enough. We were favoured by some excellent weather and fantastic scenerary plus your organisation and involvement of the whole group was great.
Although I have done a lot of self guided touring throughout the UK and Europe over the years, this was the first time I have gone with a tour company and indeed, actually visited Ireland. I have to say it was wonderful to just relax, ride and leave the organisation to somebody else. It was an excellent job done, you managed a fairly disparate group of individuals wth great expertise.
The tour and accommodation was of a high standard and would thoroughly recommend Wildirish Motorcycle Tours to anyone wishing to visit Ireland. I will certainly be back.
