We just finished a four-day cycling tour north of Galway. The team was extremely flexible in developing an itinerary to accommodate our needs, preferences and schedules, as well as being available to help with anything unexpected (in our case, a delayed flight which almost led to a missed ferry). The first morning at the shop was a bit disorganized and... More

West Ireland Cycling organized a 10 day trip in Westireland for my girlfriend and myself. They booked lovely B&B's / Hotels for us, arranged the ferry tickets to the Aran Islands and equipped us with a very good tandem. The Team is very professional, friendly and helpful. I can only recommend West Ireland Cycling!

We recently rented several bikes at West Ireland Cycling to do a trip around County Mayo. The bikes were very fine and well maintained. They provided us with a set of tools, pump, repair kits and even spare tires. If I had to point something to improve it would be the bikes having no lights. But the best part was... More

Toured with my own bike from Derry down to Galway. Had a few unpleasant bike shop experiences in Dublin before I started and was relieved to finally find a real shop that was not only willing to help me fix the rack that was installed incorrectly in Dublin but a bike touring expert who took the time to review the...

Cannot say enough about how good this shop is. Brought my second hand bike (which I bought just a year ago) into the shop for a servicing. For a great price, as I always have. However they weren't comfortable with me leaving the shop with it as the brakes weren't great.. The original shop had no bother with me taking... More

I cycled 3 weeks along the westcoast of Ireland with a bike from West Ireland Cycling. During this time, I never had a problem with it or the panniers and I really enjoyed the cycling. Liam gave me good tips and transfered the bike for me to Cork, so I could give it back in Galway 3 weeks later. Thumbs... More
