Owner description: We are located just a few hundred meters from the Greenway in Westport town center among the best hotels in the area. We provide an excellent bike hire service for the Great Western Greenway, Wild Atlantic Way and the surrounding area which has some of the best and most scenic cycling routes in Ireland. We offer FREE car parking and a shuttlebus facility for pick-ups and drop-offs to our hire customers. Helmets and other safety equipment are included in our bike hire together with a breakdown/replacement service. Also we have a large enclosed tarmaced car park for you to try out your hire bikes for fitting before venturing out on your travels. Besides bike hire we are also a fully equipped cycling repair and service shop, together with bike sales and spinning & training facilities. So basically the most fully kitted out cycling shop in the area. A friendly efficient and professional service is what you receive from the Westport Bike Shop and that can be seen in our Tripadvisor reviews.

Myself and my three friends rented bicycles from Westport Bike Shop to cycle the famous Greenway last weekend. We got a shuttle to Achill Island end of the Greenway and cycled back to Westport. The owners were very helpful and friendly. They probably saved us from certain death by exhaustion by making us aware how big Achill Island is. The bikes were comfortable and in good repair. We will definitely be back!

When we decided to take a trip on the Western Greenway from Westport to Newport we checked out the internet sites for bike hire on Google. We decided on Westport Bike Hire as it provided secure, free, car parking. We rang the shop and got clear directions to its location. When we arrived and asked for one man's bike and one lady's bike we were told that there was no lady's bike available but that they would provide a lady's electric bike for the same cost. This proved an excellent suggestion as the lady in question had just one year previously undergone a total knee replacement. The electric bike worked out wonderfully. We were provided with cycle helmets, one straight from a new box. We were given a run through on working the gears etc. and given direction on getting to the Greenway. With a "call if you have any problems" ringing in our ears we set of for a wonderful cycle to Newport and back. Many thanks to all concerned.

I have rented a road bike on two different trips to Westport. Each time, I rented a top-of-the-line bike from Westport Bike Shop for an EXTREMELY reasonable rate. The guys couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. They mapped out some incredible routes for me. Don't miss the ride out through Louisburgh-Doologh-Sheefry Pass if you like to ride a road bike. Incredibly beautiful and challenging, as well. The ride out to Achill and Keem Bay is also spectacular, with much of the ride on a dedicated bike path (the Greenway). Rent bikes from these guys! They'll even arrange a pick-up or drop-off if you only want to ride one way. Highly recommended.

I booked bike hire with The Westport Bike Shop for a large group of 3 Adults and 6 kids. The kids ages ranged from 8 up to 18. The staff in the shop couldn't have been more helpful. They had no
hire bike for the 8 year old so they took a new bike of the shop floor to accomodate him. We were late enough leaving on the Great Western Greenway cycle path & we arranged with them to be collected in either Mulranny or Achill. They even collected the youngest & 1 adult seperately which was not expected but most welcome. They are located a few minuted cycle from the start of the Westport end of the Greenway & have off street parking facilities.
