      Great experience
      Just back from cycling the waterford Greenway with my two sisters. From start to finish couldn't fault the experience of bike hire, quality of the bikes and helmets and advice received. The service was excellent. Our day didn't go as we planned. We didn't catch his name, but the staff member went out of his way to help and accommodate us when he didn't have to. We'd highly recommend this bike hire and we'll be back again.

      STAY AWAY TERRIBLE COMPANY
      I booked 7 Bikes off this place in August . Booked and paid for in FULL . Money taken out of our Account .. We had travelled down from Dublin, when we were almost there I happened to ring to confirm the pick up.. I spoke to a girl who haven’t a clue about my booking . She said she’d Ring back but of course she didn’t . I rang again and A guy called JOHN answered this time.. the ABUSE HE GAVE over the phone was absolutely DISGRACEFUL. He told me “what do you want me to do , I don’t have your bikes my booking engine crashed. “ And than the abuse started. He Than HUNG UP ON ME . I rang back twice but he wouldn’t answer. My Husband than rang from his phone , he answered straight away. He was on loud speaker as my husband was driving and the ABUSE HE ROARED at my Husband of which 4 people heard was ABSOLUTELY UNBELIEVABLE. He was the RUDEST man I have ever come across EVER. Than HUNG UP AGAIN. WE WERE ALL IN SHOCK We arrived at GRATTAN QUAY, to shutters pulled down. We walked along the streets of Waterford trying to find his shop. Along the way we met a few locals who said to us THATS GUYS BEHAVIOUR IS NOTHING NEW DOWN HERE .. he’s giving the bike hire companies a very bad name . We never got to go on cycle trip instead sat in a hotel having coffee. It’s an absolutely Disgraceful TERRIBLE company to deal with. Only 1 good thing about it was, he did Refund the money . But what good was that to 7 people who take the day off work TO TRAVEL FROM DUBLIN. NEVER AGAIN. BTW ONLY GAVE 1 STAR BECAUSE I HAD TO. 😡😡😡

      Very bad experience
      We booked 2 hybrid bikes in Waterford to cycle the Greenway, however when we got there they didn't have the bikes we booked. They gave my boyfriend a racing bike instead which was good. Unfortunately, my bike was a completely disaster. It wasn't a hybrid bike and it wasn't suitable for the Greenway at all. I wouldn’t recommend anyone to cycle more than 5k on that bike. I had to exchange the bike in Dungarvan the following day to make it back to Waterford.

      Great day on the Greenway
      We could not have had a better experience than with Waterford Greenway Tours. We left it a little late to get in touch but they were able to source two bikes and trailers for us and our twin boys. Brilliant and helpful on the phone and just the same in person when we turned up to pick up our bikes. Loved the Greenway and we had a fantastic day out. Looking forward to going back for a another run at it and will without a doubt be getting back in touch with John and his team. Owen S

      Cycling the Greenway
      Family of 4 and hired bikes starting in Kilmacthomas for two days. The team were flexible to switch one of the days due to heavy rain and they had a decent selection of bikes for all sizes and skills. Unfortunately we got a puncture but they came to rescue and replace the bike with 5 minutes of our call, which was very impressive. Although weather not great, we still got to enjoy the two days.....

      Best family cycle ever
      Everyone should go on this. It is a great day out. We were able to collect the bikes in Kilmacthomas. As it is on an old refurbished railway line there are no steep hills so any level of fitness would do. The highlight was definitely the Tunnel. An amazing day out. We brought a small picnic, but lovely restaurants in the area for a well deserved meal afterwards.

      Lovely autumnal walk near the sea
      Lovely walk on the greenway. Autumnal colours and glimpses of the sun, sea and sea birds (oyster catchers and curlews) was just lovely. All at our own pace and bumping into friends along the way made this a lovely day out. Bikes popular- may try that next time as it seemed easy to do.

      Cycle from Dungarvan to Kilmacthomas
      My friends and I planned to cycle from Dungarvan to Waterford city. The weather was very bad that day and John and his colleague were very helpful in trying to facilitate us. They put on a shuttle especially and offered good advice. We look forward to coming back again and experiencing the cycle with sunnier skies :)

      Great Customer service
      Went to Kilmacthomas to experience the greenway to Dungarvan, I brought my almost 6year old granddaughter who loves cycling her bike, & I brought her own bike but for whatever reason she got scared, we went back to bike rental, explained our our predicament and he kindly gave us a seat for the back of my bike, 5 minutes later we had to return as wee one was hysterical. It was decided to abandon the whole trip for her sake as she was too upset. We returned the 2 adult bikes that we hired and a by the way I asked for a refund!! well to my astonishment John refunded me the bike hire money, I was absolutely delighted. Well done John. We look forward to going asap without granddaughter .. I must also say the staff were so helpful and generous, I noticed people asking for padding for bike seats and nothing was of trouble to them.

      Fun, Relaxing and Beautiful
      We rented electric bikes in Kilmacthomas and rode to Dungarvan. The person who set us up in Kilmacthomas could not have been nicer or more helpful. It took us a little over 2 hours to ride to Dungarvan and the electric bikes made the ride extremely easy. There's a stop about halfway between Kilmacthomas and Dungarvan where you can get a snack or drinks. We were told that there would be a shuttle at 3:00 PM to take us back to our car in Kilmacthomas and promptly at 3:00 the shuttle picked us up and drove us the 20 minutes back to Kilmacthomas. It was a fabulous way to spend an afternoon and I highly recommend the Waterford Greenway Cycle company.

      Easy peasy - the whole thing
      We were on our bikes 5 mins after turning up at the bike hire place. Guy was very friendly. Ask for a helmet. Opted to cycle in one direction and on arrival there we booked ourselves on the free courtesy bus back to Waterford (takes approx 20 mins back by bus but depends on traffic). Gorgeous lunch/coffee n cake spot in Kilmacthomas - the Pigeon Loft/ The Coach House. Nice gift shop on the site too. Couldn't have been a more lovely half day trip. Flat cycle, Good quality Giant Liv bikes too. 27 gears.

    I had problems with the website because it would not allow me to choose the pick up depot. I tried to ring 3 times but they hang up before replying. Finally this guy picked up.

    When I asked about how to chose a depot on the website he would not listen to what i was saying and he was impatient and kept saying I should chose Tracys hotel in the website. I repeated a couple of times that it was not possible so he just shouted "well, then there is somehting wrong with the wbesite" and he just hung up. He sounded agressive. I am delighted I rang before i had to meet him. I would not go near them. Wouldn't feel safe.

    Went on the Greenway today with our daughter and her husband. They had rented their bikes from John and we had brought along our own bikes. When our daughter and her hubby dropped their rental bikes back to the shop in Dungarvan, we asked more in desperation than hope if our bikes could be transported back to Waterford, whilst we got the bus. Without a moment’s hesitation John agreed and wouldn’t take a penny in remuneration! Great generous attitude and it will certainly make us consider using Waterford Greenway Cycle Tours and Rental when next we’re in these parts.

    Extremely rude staff. Arrived in Dungarvan to be informed bikes were in Waterford. No alternative bikes offered in Dungarvan. Was willing to wait for returns but told that we would have to wait for 5 hours at least and no guarantee of getting a bike. Paid 100 for 4 bikes we didn’t get. No alternative bikes offered, no refund. Would never book with them again. Avoid at all costs! Greenway beautiful but book bikes elsewhere.

    A day trip, starting at 09:20am in Waterford, getting to Dungarvan at 12:08pm, lunch, and back to Waterford for approx. 04:40pm. We had a great time, even though it was 92km of cycling in total. The terrain isn't challenging even for likes of us - who came totally unprepped (last time we cycled was almost a year ago, back in August 2022).
    The Waterford Greenway is very scenic and pleasant route, with plenty of stops if you need them. There is a great café called Signal Box half way through the route, in Kilmacthomas. Coffee is just great there and so are home made cakes (we opted for red velvet, which was just wow).

    We worked with Ancient Ireland Tourism and had an outstanding trip to Ireland including Derry, Dublin, Belfast and Donegal. Ted Lloyd of the company worked with us to craft an excellent agenda - a mixture of historic, cultural and scenic experiences. I will definitely use him again when I travel to Eire!
