Mizen to Malin
This is the scenic first part of our 5-day Mizen to Malin trip. You start by cycling 35km along the length of the beautiful Mizen Peninsula as far as Durrus.
You then go over several small hills in West Cork with some great views of the area. The last section of the route is an easy run to Macroom.
The first half of this route is quite scenic and you pass several attractions in the area around Kilmallock and a little further on at Lough Gur.
You cycle north from Macroom through rolling hills in North Cork with some nice views. You pass through a couple of villages on the way to Mallow.
This ride is part of the Mizen to Malin Cycle. Most of it is on quiet backroads while taking a very direct route to Enniskillen.
While not spectacular, parts of it are quite scenic, particularly as you near Enniskillen.
From Enniskillen you ride north across small hills and countryside that grows ever more scenic.
You pass the Grianan of Aileach above Derry City and have a climb in the centre of the Inishowen Peninsula that gets you off the main road before the last leg to Malin Head.
