Great facility. Went on bikes wtih 2 kids from Westport to Newport on August Bank holiday. Only fault is that it could do with a few more milage markers en route as we had no idea how far we had gone.

They've done a tremendous job with this amenity. Cycled from Achill to Westport using Clew Bay Cycles and would recommend this route - more 'downhill' and with the prevailing wind.

Firstly great idea to stay in Achill, it’s amazing! If you leave from Westport there are several safe car parks in the town that you can use. There are also spaces beside Clew bay bike hire if you intend on renting a bike.
