Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Paul was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Great communication before the day about times and places to eat. We met Paul at paddy and nellies where he had set up 12 bikes for the group. He gave us directions of how to get to the tavern by Croagh Patrick. It was a lovely scenic route and fit for all capabilities. We had a lovely lunch and Paul collected our bikes and shuttled us back to Westport at a time that suited us.
Would definitely recommend to anyone staying in Westport

We had an amazing experience with Paddy and Nelly bike hire during our group tour along the coast. The bikes provided were in excellent condition and made our journey comfortable and enjoyable. What made the day even better was the stop for lunch at Croagh Patrick Seafoods, where we savored delicious oysters and smoked salmon. The combination of a great biking adventure and a delightful lunch made this day truly memorable. Thank you to the Paul from Paddy and Nelly bike hire for making it all possible!

A wonderful few hours with a few business colleagues. Friends in the making. The electric bikes are amazing and so easy to use. I could have stayed out longer. We will definitely be black. Paul made everything so 'mater of fact' making sure we all knew the rules and ready for off with ease.

An amazing day tripping curtosy of Paddy and Nelly bikes 😍. It started with meeting at their premises in Westport to be fitted to a bike that best suited and being sent off for a short test drive to make sure I felt comfortable. From there, Paul and Elka lead us along the Greenway before breaking away to a stunning cycle down to Croagh Patrick Seafoods where we were treated to stunning views over Clew Bay and got an opportunity to same salmon, oysters and the local brew. Highly recommend Paddy and Nelly bikes for bike hire and also their tours 😍

We took a shuttle near to Achill Island and biked back on the Greenway to Westport. Diverse views. Gorgeous. Had the best ( smaller ) electric bike version. Believe trip was 26 miles. Loved suggested stop once we got thru “busy” town at pub for a bite. (We walked bike on sidewalk and it did not take very much time.)
Paddy and Nelly very nice and helpful. ( we were signed up for another tour that had closed down and they very nicely took us in.)
A beautiful area to bike. Would love to go back and do over, and try other routes. If you are afraid to go on roads the Greenway -this is it. ❤️ and we would rent from this business.

Quality of bikes is very poor and even as experienced cyclists we found it hard going at times, difficult to change gears and uncomfortable saddles make for a 40km ride to Achill a real challenge considering the weather and wind that hits you at times.

Shocked at this unfair description of our bikes. Also I don't know who you are behind 991BILL56 you are misleading people Every person who rents a bike at Paddy&Nelly must test cycle bike sign booking Form that the bike is in good mechanical order these are out terms and conditions So as an experienced cyclist I don't understand why would you take a bike as poor mechanicaly. as described. Very unprofessional Furthermore we. Explain. To All cyclist that cycling out to Achill from Westport is more difficult with the head winds. Be informed inaccurate reviews damage a business.
