Default Irishbike.com tours?

My wife has decided that five or six years from now she wants to take a trip to Ireland and see the country. I, of course, said if we really want to see the scenery we need to do it on a bike.

She found www.irishbike.com which has an 11 day unguided tour bike rental package. Anyone dealt with them or heard anything, good or bad, about them?

I'm finishing school, she's starting school, and our son will be going off to college in about 4 years...plus it gives us plenty of time to save up.

Thanks for the offer! This is my wife's typical mode of operation...she gets an idea and runs with it. I told her I'd ask, and I did.
