Straight and simple: Liam and his team at West Ireland Cycling delivered an exceptional self-guided cycling experience. Online booking (only 10% down, balance due when you start the trip) was easy and confirmed quickly. All the arrangements--from modest, welcoming B&B accommodations to ferry tickets and transfers--were well and cheerfully organized. I was very pleased with the quality of the bikes... More

What a fantastic trip! Our 6 day Connemara tour let us experience varied scenery for both the countryside and city centers. From castles to ruins to mountain lakes to white sand beaches to dolphins on the ferry each day we experienced something new. Liam and his team responded immediately to our emails and let us hash out details and questions... More

From the beginning of my email correspondence with this company I was amazed at how much effort they took to help us plan our trip with them. I sure had a lot of emails back and forth that they took great effort to respond to. As for the trip I can't say enough about the exemplary care that we were... More

To say that Liam and his team were the greatest doesn't even touch how impressed we were! The care that was taken of us during our entire visit completely exceeded any expectations we had - and in reading previous reviews before choosing Western Ireland Cycling, our expectations were high. I grew to love Liam and his entire team, the people... More

We hired a couple of bikes for a 6-day self-guided tour around Connemara. The guys at WIC were knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful. The gear was good (new bikes & locks, old panniers) though it would have been good to also get some lights and bells.

The crew of West Ireland Cycling did a suburb job organizing our Connemara bike trip. They handled our larger group of 4 adults and 7 children with ease, kindness, attentiveness and flexibility. Everything was taken care of: new trek bikes, helmets, bike bags, locks, repair kits, etc. The Bed & Breakfast were excellent with good beds and wonderful breakfasts. Having... More

My family went to Galway to have a sort of reunion with cousins living in the area. Since there were 17 of us, I thought a bike trip in the Connemara area would be great family outing. Our group ranged from 18 yrs of age to 70+. Liam did an outstanding job of putting together a fabulous itinerary that allowed... More

Went on a 5-night biking tour of Western Ireland and had an amazing time. West Ireland Cycling made everything a breeze. They were really accommodating in making a shortened itinerary for us (than the one generally offered on their website), even including special requests of places we wanted to stay. The routes they provided were breathtaking, as were all the... More

I came there only to rent a bik and cycle around Conemara and I left with much more.They gave me great advice on the places I should visit, some help to stay nice and affordable B&Bs, and globally any kind of assistance to make my trip perfect (good equipment, logistic assistance,...) They combine efficiency and kindness.
