KIM Kardashian and her new husband Kanye West strapped on outdoor gear and went cycling in the Ballyhoura Mountains, local tour guides have revealed.
The reality star and the rapper have so far evaded media and fans on their Irish honeymoon after flying into Cork Airport by private jet on Sunday.
It has been confirmed that the couple spent the first night here in the exclusive Castle Oliver, a privately-owned residence in Ardpatrick, Co Limerick.
But the high-profile pair have now moved on to Kerry.
A group of six VIPs enjoyed cycling and hiking with Ballyhoura Failte, the local tourism organisation in Kilfinnane, Co Limerick.
Manager of Ballyhoura Failte, Fergal Somers confirmed the booking was for six and included a couple but according to the guide, some appeared to be security.
Bookings were made for a size six frame bike and a smaller size four for a lady.
“We were not told who they were except that they were Americans staying in a local residence,” Mr Somers said. “One of them had visited before after doing a concert in the Marquee in Cork.
“One of the party had cycled the route before on a previous visit, which is considered one of the best mountain-biking trails in the world.”
The VIP group took in the Blackrock Loop and the Ballyhoura Way and enjoyed a picnic prepared by The Bakehouse in Bruff, Co Limerick.
Kim and Kanye are due to fly back to the US from Cork Airport by private jet at 6am on Saturday but are also due to spend a night in Dublin as part of their Irish honeymoon.
