Got bikes from Clew Bay cycles. Bussed out to Achill Sound. Not really cyclists but cycle a little. Left Achill Sound around 11 and arrived in Westport at 4.30 with a coffee break in Mulranny and a relaxed lunch in Newport. Highly recommended.

Wouldn't think you'd have much trouble to be honest. Tarmac for a good chunk of the route. We went from Achill to Westport.
