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.

The best part of our experience was the personal and timely experience we received, which made our planning run very smoothly and without problems! Lorène was amazing at listening to our needs and wants and putting an excellent trip together. She always responded immediately with information that kept us worry free. Our favorite days were the Roundstone loop from Clifden and cycling through the Doo Lough valley on an idyllic country road with no car traffic. While the rainy weather is always a rush, our early October experience was just what we expected. Thus was a superb week of cycling that was just right to gave a few hours of pleasant riding but also time to enjoy the areas we cycled to. We can recommend Connemara Tours and Lorène for an unforgettable experience!

This was our second tour with Connemara Adventure Tours and we would book with them again, which is testament enough to the team and location.

We booked a customised luxury e-biking tour re-visiting a couple of hotels we’d particularly liked previously, both Rosleague in Letterfrack and Lough Inagh Lodge did not disappoint. Ashford Castle in Cong was another world of luxury!

There were a couple of issues with the e-bikes this time but they were resolved quickly and without any fuss. Thank you Gab and Lorene for being so supportive and helpful.

We covered about 280 in six days with the assistance of the e-bikes, especially appreciated as no matter in which direction we cycled the wind seemed to be always against us.

My memories of the holiday are wonderful. The scenery is stunning, cycling through it, even into the head wind on the Sky Road is exhilarating and uplifting. What really made the holiday are the people - the excellent team from Connemara Tours, must mention Gab and Lorene again, and the people themselves.

If you’re looking for a holiday in Ireland, my advice would be to use Connemara Adventure Tours and try e-biking. At home, we’re walkers so the distance and effort were not a problem. However, it would be useful to get used to sitting on a bike seat for hours before you go….

In summary, an excellent well organised and supported holiday in a beautiful location, great food and great people.

Thank you to all of you, who have been involved in planning and arranging our Atlantic Way Experience cycling tour in Connemara. It was a well-planned trip with reasonably long bike lanes that allowed us to make departures from the planned route. All the B & B we stayed in were very nice and of a good standard and with nice hosts.We were lucky not to have any unpleasant incidents with the bike or ourselves.It was a holiday that gave taste for more of Ireland and this type of holiday. Our holiday was a wonderful experience

Thanks to Conner, Gabriel and crew for a well organised walking tour. We did the Taste of Wild Atlantic self guided tour. We adapted it a bit and hired a guide for one day. The walks were about the right length and and difficulty. The bed and breakfast accommodation was very comfortable. Gorgeous scenery and peaceful countyside.

Many thanks to Coner, Chloé, Gabriel and other staff of Connemara Adventure Tours (CAT) for making it possible for us to have a great family cycle tour. We booked fairly late in the season, had to make some last-minute revisions and additions, and throughout CAT was able to respond quickly and effectively. To be able to come from so far away to such a lovely and enchanting place, and then have all the logistical planning taken care of so that we could have the freedom of cycling when and where we wanted to go was truly amazing and delightful!

CHALLENGING CONNEMARA CYCLING TOUR

My son and I chose the challenging cycling tour. We are both fit and felt this would provide us with enough of a challenge without feeling we had climbed the Col du Tourmalet every day.

Anyone reading this who is even remotely contemplating a cycling holiday I can only recommend Connemara Adventure Tours to provide you with an enjoyable challenging tour to suit your needs and abilities. The staff are as friendly as you would wish, they keep in regular contact during the booking process and were able to answer all of our questions.

We travelled from the UK to Shannon airport and then took the bus from Shannon to Galway and then on to Maam Cross where we were met by the delightful Gabriel and his even more delightful sausage dog! He was there waiting for us outside the Peacockes hotel and we had a most friendly journey to Leenaun chatting all the way.
At the Leenaun Hotel we were met by Connor who provided us with maps and went through the weeks route. An informative and knowledgeable chat followed by a quick try out with the bikes. The bikes were the Lapierre cross 400 with a single waterproof pannier attached. The bikes proved themselves on the journey to be the ideal choice.

The hotel and the guesthouses were all welcoming and very comfortable. A special mention to Mary at the beautiful Nymphsfield House in Cong where we arrived soaked to the skin. The towels, tray of tea, biscuits and apple pie she provided were most welcome. We awoke the next morning to find our cycling gear had been dried and trainers stuffed with paper ensuring a much better start to the day. Our luggage was waiting for us every day on our arrival at each new stop and the whole experience ran without a hitch.

In summary a great way to spend a week. The scenery in this part of the world is something to behold. The weather was fine most days with a bit of the 'soft Irish' rain as Connor called it but even the rain couldn’t detract from the overall beauty of the place. One of the most scenic is Achill Island we cycled round the island and then back to Westport via the Western Greenway.

The roads in general are very quiet and safe. The bars and cafes along the route were always welcoming and very friendly.

In summary if you are considering a cycling tour take a look at Connemara Adventure Tours I can guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Outstanding trip. Five stars to this company which superbly organized all the arrangements for our bike trip in Connemara. The western-Ireland countryside is magically beautiful and the little roads my wife and I rode our bikes through were delightful. The Bed&Breakfasts we stayed at were welcoming and pleasant. Several of them look out over the Atlantic: Inishbofin and other islands always in view. Connemara Adventure Tours provided fine bikes which worked with no problems for the week's tour. Our suitcase was transported during the daytime to the next B&B so we could take a shower and have clean clothes to change into. Excellent restaurants along the way: salmon and other freshly-caught fish, lobster too. High-detail maps were provided to us, with our route clearly outlined (we were touring on our own with no guide), and possible side-excursions marked too. The side-excursions were actually some of the most enjoyable parts of the trip, as we would not have known about them otherwise. Here C.A.T.'s long-standing knowledge of the Connemara geography and history was absolutely irreplaceable and contributed a great deal to the pleasure of our trip. Note too, if you are thinking of a bike trip through Connemara, that there are easy bus connections from Dublin city and from Dublin airport direct to Clifden, where the tours begin. -- Tom and Anny, USA, June 2019

I recently completed a bicycle tour in the Connemara section of Ireland managed by Connemara Adventures. I'm a 72-year-old man in reasonably good shape, and the tour was their 5-day whistle stop excursion. I traveled by myself in early June.
The trip was very carefully planned in advance, and I was given a detailed map as well as written instructions and suggestions. Conor met with me upon my arrival and took about a half hour to go over the travel plan as well as supply me with my equipment. The trip went flawlessly and exceeded my expectations. Connemara Adventures was very helpful in all phases of the planning, the bike was in perfect condition, and the accommodations incredible. Most of all, the professionalism and enthusiasm of the staff was obvious in all parts of the planning and execution, and every detail was carefully and respectfully attended to. I'd recommend this bicycle tour to anyone.
