Fantastic service, very good bikes. I booked the bike for 3 days, picked it up from achill island and dropped it there. The shuttle service was fantastic.

My wife and I had an amazing experience and would highly recommend Westport bike hire. Owned by a friendly couple. They are a provide a shuttle to Achill Sound to allow a one way, 26 mile ride. The bike path is almost 80% newly paved and in excellent condition. The views of the sound and surrounding area were really nice. A must do if you are staying in the area. We stayed at the Westport Plaza Hotel which was only blocks away from the bike shop on James Street. We chose eBikes for the ride which turned out to be a good choice given some of the grades.

A great experience overall, my bicycle made for a comfortable ride, and the location allowed easy access to trails. Staff were friendly and helpful. When waiting for my bike, a customer rang in with a problem that seemed to be addressed in a timely and efficient manner.

We hired bikes from Westport Bike Hires to do the Greenway on the Easter weekend.
The booking process was very smooth online where you pick up the bikes category, the times and the shuttle time if you want to only do one-way.
Everything was punctual and as promised. We took the shuttle to Achill sound at noon and we arrived before 1 pm. We had 5 hours to return back before our last train (which is plenty of time to do the greenway at a comfortable pace).
We so much wanted to check the Island itself for a while especially that the weather was perfect. The owner advised us that it can take a long time to cycle around the Ireland and we have to manage our time efficiently to be back on time. We thought we could make the shortest loop (1 hr) and still make it on time.
The bikes were in very good conditions making the ride enjoyable.
We did the shortest Achill Island loop (16 km) and it was amazing and then started our way back to Westport on the greenway.
Unfortunately, we had a little slipping accident that delayed us for an hour (cleaning wounds, searching for a first Aid Kit, some rest time,..etc) and we became very tight on time if we want to make it. The wind was also getting very strong against our cycling direction and it was tiring to keep up a consistent speed.
The reason I am telling this long story is because at the end of the greenway, we still had 5 km to the shop but only 25 mins until the train and it was impossible to return the bikes and then catch the train (the station is 1.5 km away from the shop). We desperately called the shop asking for help and we were amazed by the kindness of the owner offering to pick us up by the shuttle from the road and try to drop us by the train station on time. He arrived at our location in 5 mins and thanks to him, we were able to catch our train. We are so grateful to him for saving our day.

We recently went to Westport on holiday as a family of 6. We rented 5 bikes and a trailer (for our youngest) to cycle the Greenway (Westport to Achill). We highly recommend Westport Bike Hire. The premises is conveniently located behind the Castle Court Hotel in the town & a short distance from the beginning of the actual Greenway. All the staff we encountered were very friendly & helpful. The bikes provided were all new and in excellent condition & totally appropriate for both adults (2) and kids (4) in our group. We arranged for a lift back from Achill and the guy was on time and so friendly & we would highly recommend this aspect of the service as it made it possible for us to do the whole Greenway and be collected from Achill. Both the bikes and the lift back were well priced for the bikes & the service we received. Really nice people to deal with & highly recommend Westport Bike Hire.

I do not write reviews; but, I am particularly grateful to the family at Westport Bike Hire on James St.
I rented a house outside Westport and figured I would just hire an Ebike for the duration of my holiday to go back and forth to town. I got one for my wife as well. At age 75, the electric backup was perfect.
However, driving to Westport to pick-up the bikes, I found the road to be deadly for bikes. And, the bike path seemed sketchy with construction going on. In short, I chickened out. I didn’t thank the reserved bikes.
I came back the next day to see what else I could and met Alva - a 16 year old niece who seemed to have advanced training in IT. She took my phone, drew a couple of routes on Google maps, and posted them on my phone.
Talk about the Luck of the Irish! If Alva had not taken a lot of time to work with me and calm my anxiety, I would have missed the best part of our holiday in Westport - traveling around by bike.
We had no issues with the bikes - everything worked well. But, you can get that in lots of places. What is special about WESTPORT BIKE HIRE on JAMES STREET is Kate and her family’s desire to make sure your trip is perfect for you.

I biked a bit too far for my athletic ability, but the service couldn't have been better despite my late arrival. Kate was exceptionally kind to meet me when I finally turned up, no fee. Getting the bike was simple and I was given pointers by the staff for my route. Included helmet and reflective vest. Very quality bike, all the gear shifts worked well and I was a lightweight sturdy ride. Would have gone for the electric if I knew better, as there is so much beautiful country to see! Next time, and possible discount as I was told if I hire a bike with them again.
