Just completed the Connemara Express self guided tour brilliantly organised and supported by Nathan and the team at West Ireland Cycling. Great B&Bs, decent bikes and a helpful team organising our transfers etc. Great holiday.

We rented two bikes for 8 days and cycled 250km in Connemara. The bikes and equipment were great and Liam and his team were more than helpful regarding the itinerary, restaurants, hostels and nice camping spots. Couldn't ask for more, these guys were awesome. I hope we'll have the chance to come back next year for more.

The service provided by the staff at West Ireland Cycling was excellent. The bike was a very new and reliable Trek. The bed and breakfasts arranged for me were comfortable, the breakfasts were filling, and the hosts welcoming. The routes recommended were suited to my level and breathtakingly beautiful. My first solo bike adventure was so well-supported yet independent, and... More

My husband and I booked a 3 day self guided bike tour with these guys and had a fantastic time! We were warmly greeted by Hachi (Liam's dog) and driven to Maam crossing where our adventure began. They provided us with great bikes, maps, and panniers with some tools and a tire repair kit. The route was a perfect level... More

They were very easy to work with, accommodating, and helpful. Got me ready to roll and pointed me in the right direction. Would recommend them and personally use them again.

Our sincerest thanks to West Ireland Cycling for the rental of this tandem. A friend and I were doing a charity cycle, Dublin to Louisburgh, Mayo 320km in just two days. A perfectly serviced Tandem Bike, 4 effective panniers, not a single puncture, and two tired lads. We're extremely grateful to West Ireland Cycling, and will never forget the experience... More

I went in Connemara between the 25th june and the 1° of july. It was a fantastic cycling holiday along by the itinerary I've arranged with the fabulous Liam (the chief of WIC). They gave me a good bycicle, a strong support (though everythings worked in the best way) and a lot of courtesy. When I arrive to Galway they... More

My wife and I wanted to tour western Ireland by bike, but didn't want to go with a group. With the help of Liam from West Ireland Cycling, we put together a 5 day tour that was just what we wanted. Liam was incredibly patient with us and was quick to respond to each of the 30 or so emails... More
