Fabulous landscape on very little frequented paths. We practically did not pass people during the 5 hours ride. The most of this ballad is certainly Paul who takes care of us and is inexhaustible when it comes to talking about his region. He is flexible, caring and knows the area very well.

Thanks Jeannine and Bernard for your kind words. We try and find remote areas for our guests to enjoy. The landscape speaks louder than anyone ! It was a pleasure and hope you come back to Ireland and the West again soon. Paul.

We've been to Westport on quite a few occasions but not always hired bikes, the occasions we did have been the most enjoyable. We didn't know what our plans might be so decided to hire the bikes and just enjoy the countryside and Greenway. I'm over 60 and not the fittest specimen and my wife had back surgery earlier in the year so we didn't want anything to strenuous. Paul was happy to let us go along the Greenway but suggested an alternative on an old mountain road which offered better views. He gave us directions and options to shorten the route if we felt it was too difficult. We followed his advice and the road...to the end. It was worth the effort, the scenery was spectacular and, apart from a short stand off with some sheep, we were alone for quite a bit of the way with nothing but natural beauty everywhere we looked. We were blessed with great weather in November and enjoying the day so much we didn't pay much attention to time. Paul was prepared to come and pick us up but we set off from Mallaranny and managed to cycle back to Westport (turbo power may have been engaged). I'd encourage anyone to try Electric Escapes if you're going to Westport, cycling on an E-Bike was a great way to see this beautiful part of Ireland and Paul is a wonderful host.

So we are 4 middle aged fair weather bikers that were completely indecisive about whether or not to ride. But amazing Paul put up with us anyway and took us on the most amazing tour of County Mayo that we could have imagined (all while hauling the bikes). We never rode but we enjoyed a full day that included a coffee break by a waterfall and a picnic on the Atlantic Coast. You haven't seen Ireland until you have experienced the Achill Cliffs. They may not be as high as Moher but they make up for it in ruggedness and beauty. And all guides should be like Paul--proud to show off his adopted homeland and knowledgeable about out of the way places that most tourists don't get to see. Can't recommend this tour enough!!

My husband and I rode the e-bikes for the first time and had a blast! The “turbo” setting really helped on the uphills. Because we decided to try the bikes at the last minute, Paul didn’t have room on any of the tours, but he picked us up and set us up with the bikes, maps, and suggestions. He was very thorough and we had no trouble going off on our own. It was something a bit different and gave us a real feel for the backroads and trails. We are 60 and in moderate physical condition, and had no trouble. I highly recommend!

Thanks Rose and Tom , it was a pleasure seeing two people head off into the Mayo wilderness a little wary of the tour ahead and pick you up a few hours later with beaming smiles and stories to tell. Off the beaten track is where we put you and so glad you enjoyed it and you even took the high road of 1000 sqaure miles of wilderness! It shows what you can do with a map and guides suggestions and TURBO on an Electric Bike !! Thanks again for choosing ElectricEscapes .

My daughter-in-law and I had such a wonderful time on the e-bikes through the countryside. Paul catered to our very need. He also provided us with so much history of the area. It was our favorite part of our stay in Ireland. The fresh steamed mussels on the beach was a huge treat. Thank you Paul!
