“Under the Bridge...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2012

Cycled from Mulranny to Newport on 11th February - apart from the rain, had a great 18km on the Clew Bay bikes - big thanks to Travis for rescuing 5 drown rats and ferrying us to shelter back at base in Westport.

“Excellent Service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2012

I have just returned from a w-end away in westport. We Got our bike hire as part of our Wyatt Hotel package. I cannot recommend Travis and his staff at Clewbay bike hire enough. So friendly from start to finish, even rescuing us from torrential rain downpours :-) The Cycling route is beautiful and very scenic. They provide an excellent service by recommending what route to take to avoid any uphills, picnic spots and drop you off at your starting point. Helmets and Hi-Vis jackets are all included. I'll definitely be recommending Travis @ Clewbay bike hire to all my friends!

“Great bike hire shop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2012

Went here to hire a bike to cycle the Greenway. Bikes are in good working order and are comfortable to use for a prolonged time in the day. All extras are included in the price, for example helmet, pump, spare tube, panniers, lock. The staff were very helpful in showing me different routes to take and they also offer a pick-up/collection service if you get tired.

The usual rate for a day is €20 but since I booked my bike for 2 days I got a discount of €10 so I only had to pay €30. I would definately use this service again for biking in the Clew Bay area.

“Great service for the Great Western Greenway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2012

Visited Westport on a wet weekend in February but decided to cycle the greenway. Clew Bay Bike Hire provide bicycle rental and transport out to Achill, allowing us to cycle the entire Greenway back to Westport without retracing your steps. The service we received from Dave was excellent, friendly and cheap at only €20. He even offered to collect and transport us back to Westport if we got too tired or come and fix a puncture. All in all, an excellent days activity along some very secenic landscape.

“Great Day Out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2012

We cycled the Newport - Mulranny section on bikes hired in Newport from Clew Bay Bike Hire. The bikes were good machines in excellent order. On reaching Mulranny the Bike company's rep there minded the bikes while we had lunch in the hotel. We cycled back as well but there is an option to be picked up by minibus if one is tired or has had enough. The Greenway offers safe scenic cycling (or walking) for all ages and is a great day out on your holiday and Clew Bay Bike Hire make it all easy.
