I had an outstanding experience renting a touring bike from West Ireland Cycling! The staff were friendly, helpful, experienced, and more than happy to offer their expertise as I planned my 17-day touring route. My rented touring bike was expertly tuned and survived my 600-mile route without even a single mechanical issue. I would definitely, definitely rent from these guys... More

Wow. We cannot say enough about booking your trip through West Ireland Cycling. They planned our trip to meet our specific needs -- such as no mountains to cycle up and down. Reserved all stays, and transported luggage to each location. They even picked us up at the train station in Galway, and gave us a ride back when all... More
