A fabulous way to see Dublin is by bike, and Lazy Bike Tours offers a unique way to start your Dublin experience. The Lazy Bike Tour Company is located in Temple Bar, just a 45-minute journey on the Luas from The Beacon Hotel. If you wish to drive, the journey will take around 30 minutes. There is parking available both on-street metered parking as well as multi-story car parks, Jury’s Christ Church car park being the closest.
This is a fully guided tour from Dublin City Centre and takes in some of the major tourist attractions in Dublin. It includes stops at Dublin Castle, St Patricks Cathedral, Guinness Brewery and Christ Church Cathedral. Along the way, the guides will share some of the interesting stories and facts about the area of Dublin. There will be time for photographs and lots of questions. The Dublin City Bike Tour takes around two hours, and everything you need is provided, from the bike to all the safety equipment that is required. The tour is structured to visit as many landmarks as possible in the allotted time.
The Lazy Bike Tour uses electric bikes, which are like any standard bike but with a little electric motor built into the rear wheel hub. This provides assistance to the rider of up to 25kph. The motor is controlled by peddling the bike.
It is recommended to book your tickets in advance to guarantee the date, time and tour you want. All riders must be at least 14 years of age to participate in the tour. Riders 14-17 years must have a parent present to sign a waiver and take the tour with them. Riders 18 years and above do not need parental consent to participate in the tour. These tours take place rain or shine, though it is advised to dress appropriately for the weather.
