Welcome to MYBIKEORHIKE, where you can book your authentic tour with a real local guide.
My name is Ben, and I am a local tour guide who will tour you by bike, or a hike, as you like! I give day tours that are off the beaten path but never too hard to get to. Choose between a hybrid or electric bike tour and pedal with ease along the coast, river greenways or canal towpaths of Dublin and Kildare, or come on a guided hike in the Dublin or Wicklow mountains As a local guide, learn about the local history, geography, ecology and more while taking in fresh air and getting in some healthy exercise, but at a pace that you decide. Skip the queues, the crowds, the strict schedules, and come with me on care free jaunt to the places you want to see and enjoy unique experiences to remember.
All our tours are carefully curated so they can operate in a sustainable way, while offering unique and memorable experiences. The localities they pass through are thoroughly researched so you can enjoy and learn about less well known local history, stories and folklore. Safety is paramount at all times, and all necessary measures are taken to ensure compliance with current guidelines. Both public and private group tours are available, and you can select from a menu of pre-set tours, or request a tour that is tailored to your specific requirements.

Along The Coast
With green plains to the north and west, mountains to the south, even us Dubliners sometimes forget about the wonderful vistas and fun things to do along the east coast of Dublin. Why not grab a local train, bus, bike or boat and breathe in the sea air for an unforgettable day out, and see Dublin from a different perspective!
Countryside and Greenways
It’s back to the future, revisiting the 18th century canal towpaths. Back then it was horse drawn barges and now they are beautifully repurposed greenways just waiting to be explored on foot or by bike. No better way to get away from it all than a bike ride along the many greenways and quiet country paths of counties Dublin and Kildare.
WHAT CUSTOMERS SAY.
Went on a hike with Ben and a group of transition year students. We all really enjoyed it. Ben was very informative throughout the hike providing information on different stops throughout the hike from Glencullen to Tibradden. Would recommend Ben for future hikes. Thanks Ben!
I’ve been on several bike tours when traveling to new cities. Ben’s tour really stands out, far above the others. The reasons are simple: 1. He provides an audio system. That way he can narrate as you’re riding. Soooo much more information can be provided to you given this simple solution! 2. Electrical bike kept your energy fresh all day. We cover so much ground without getting tired. Use the electric part as little or as much as you want. 3. He’s really flexible. Tell him what you’re most interested in and he’ll focus more on that. 4. A very nice lunch at a very quaint restaurant is provided. Yum! 5. Got such a good overview of the city and culture! Highly recommend spending a day in Dublin with Ben!
Ben had a nice relaxed and calm delivery and was very knowledgeable, with answers to all the questions that we threw at him. Ben tailored the tour to suite us as a stag party and as well as showing us the history of Dublin in all its glory, he also took us to some of his favourite watering holes, where we could soak up the atmosphere and buzz of Dublin with a cold pint of Guinness. Ben also sent all that he talked about via WhatsApp, which allowed us to refer to this and use his knowledge of where to go and when for the entire weekend. great value for money and well recommended.
We did the Bridges of the Liffey tour with Ben in Dublin. An excellent tour. Ben was a fantastic host, very knowledgeable with a passion for bridges! but, not only a fab tour about the bridges, Ben told us about the history, the background, the politics…I could go on! He recommended some bars and restaurants too, and we had a lovely refreshment break in Epic near the end! Thank you Ben, and thank you for the photos and route you took for us at no extra cost :)
