Holidays and Guiding

Come and experience the best views and biking in Ireland followed by some real Irish craic.


At Rock and Ride we've been fortunate enough to ride, race and guide in some of the World's most spectacular places. We feel even more fortunate to be located in the Mourne Mountains, an area which is truly packed with World Class riding as well as some of the most spectacular views in Ireland.  We've developed a detailed knowledge of all the local trails and are in a perfect position to offer you the insight that only a local can give.


With permanent trails in nearby Castlewellan and Rostrevor forests this area is now a real hotbed of mountain bike action to rival the famous 7 Stanes in Scotland but it's the hidden natural trails which really set the Mournes apart.  Come and find out what the buzz is all about with Ireland's most qualified and experienced guides.  We offer guiding services suitable for all skill and fitness levels, let us know what you're after in a days ride and we'll put together a route that you'll be talking about for years.


After a great days biking we can point you in the direction of some proper Irish pubs where you can settle in with a Guinness and a great meal to enjoy the craic.


We also offer bespoke holidays in the Mournes using beautiful self catering cottages in the heart of the mountains which feature secure bike storage, bike wash and laundry facilities.  Add in some guiding, learning and great local eating and drinking and you've got the makings of an unforgettable trip away. We collect from either of the Belfast airports and can transport you around all of the local riding hotspots, maximizing your riding time and enjoyment.


We're not limited to the off-road either, if the tarmac is what you love then we've got some spectacular road routes.  Ride through the Mournes over the daunting Spelga Pass or enjoy the incredible scenery of the Antrim coast.  We've got the guides who can make it easy for you, circular routes or point to point, give us a call and we'll sort an itinerary just for you and your friends.


As our holidays are designed exactly to your needs we provide individual prices for each based on the level of service you require.  Simply contact us with your requirements and we'll give you a price, it'll be a lot more reasonable than you'd ever expect.
