On behalf of my company recently, I had to hire a number of bikes, to join in a one day charity cycle event and I have to say that from beginning to end the service from West Ireland Cycling was super! They couldn't have been more helpful, with all our bikes ready and labelled for us upon arrival and even... More

I rented a tandem for two weeks. Service was great. Bike was excellent. I would definitely do it again. Very helpful staff. Biking in Ireland is a great way to see the country. We went from Westport to Dingle. Just beautiful.

When planning cycling trips I am always worried about the quality of bikes. It turned out i needn't have worried at all! The bikes (Trek fx 7.1) were very good, with well-adjusted gears. Liam and his staff organised our trip in no time. Within a few days we had our trip outlined, B&Bs booked. We also arranged for luggage transfer.... More

Yes, almost exactly one year ago, I rented a bike from West Ireland Cycling and off I went for five days. Even better- because they (Liam, Nathan & the rest of them) were so helpful and planned everything so carefully, I was able to do it all by myself. They even equipped me with a cell phone with all their... More

I gave West Ireland Cycling a positive review 12 months ago – and I feel compelled to do the same again, a year later ! Liam and the guys provide a first class service, which really needs to be recognised. Nothing is too much trouble: the bikes are excellent (we got brand new ones again this year) – and the... More

Liam and his crew made our bike tour of the western coast of Ireland the trip of a lifetime. We emailed them about renting bikes and they ended up not only renting us bikes, but bringing the bikes to us in Ennis (and doing a great job of fitting the bikes) at the beginning of the trip and transporting the...

This is an entirely unpretentious shop with excellent bikes and superlative staff and support. The shop, proprietor Liam, and his welcoming, skilled, and attentive staff played a substantial role in my solo 60th birthday celebratory Joy-Ride journey in Western Ireland, Though I never met Liam directly he was a consistently available, informative, patient and unfailingly helpful offstage presence. He responded... More

For a very reasonable fee, Nathan and Liam of West Ireland Cycling rented us a Cannondale tandem, arranged our accommodation, ferry passages and transfers out of and back into Galway City, (to avoid busy roads and maximize our pleasure). We cycled, with our gear, for 6 days around Connemara. We had a rough idea of where we would cycle which... More
