I booked a short trip to Ireland and was hoping I'd be able to get out to the countryside and get some decent biking in. I only had one day in Galway that would work for a day trip and found the customer service from John easily the best I've probably had in my life. John arranged to drop off... More

We rented bikes from West Ireland Cycling for a bike tour from Galway to Westport. John met us at the Connemara Airport with bikes and panniers and was patient and informative. The bikes were in excellent condition which proved very beneficial as we biked into strong headwinds on day two of the trip. John provided us with maps, suggested routes... More

We hired a tandem bike for a long weekend's cycling trip around Mayo and Galway. John was extremely helpful in arranging our pick up/drop off of the bike, bringing it all the way up to Knock airport for us and even dropping us at my family's town a 20 minute drive away from there. He also called off his own... More

We rented a Cannondale tandem from the outfit and the price for the day as well as the bike itself were outstanding. Please note they are located a few shops down from Monroe's on Dominick street (the Google location you'll find may say closed permanently as they have moved).

A self guided cycling trip around Connemara was the perfect way to discover this beautiful area. West of Ireland Cycling were well organised - their friendly team looked after us and ensured that the different travel requirements by some of our party presented no problems. Very happy to recommend them.

Cycling in Connemara in June could have been a wash out - but it wasn't: while all around us it rained, we were blessed with excellent weather. While West of Ireland Cycling can't be given the credit for that, they can be complimented on the excellent bikes, well-thought out route, lovely stopping points and B&Bs / hotels, and the attentive...

I visited Galway on business and rented a road bike at West Ireland Cycling. The bike was perfect (Trek 1.1 road bike), set up with pedals of my liking etc. The staff was also super-helpful with payment options, and even borrowed me a loaner bike before paying (so I could bike to the ATM nearby). All in all - very... More
