I was wondering where best to rent bikes for the great western greenway, we will be staying in westport. we might want to shuttle three and bike back and we are looking for a good company to use for shuttle and bike here. Also is the path very crowded in august?
The company we used is called Clew Bay bike hire, they provided an excellent service. They have two shops in Westport and then others along the route. We had planned on cycling from Westport to Achill and back again but by the time we reached Achill, the rain had set in. We rang the company and they sent out a taxi bus to collect us- it cost 22euro between the four of us to be collected from Achill. We did our cycle during the Easter holidays so I don't know how busy the route is during the month of August.
Clew Bay bike hire in Westport are brilliant and will advise you all the way. Choose a fine day for your cycle, no rain.
August should be ok too but obviously more people around. En route stop at Mulrany park hotel before heading out to Achill island and The Bervi is a wonderful guest house on the beach in Achill. M
