Attraction details
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.

10 of us rented bikes for day messing around on the Greenway. Simon was very patient with such a large group and was up for a bit of friendly banter with us. We hired a range of bikes including several electric bikes. The standard of bikes was impressive, some obviously straight out of the box, new. All agreed that the day was great craic and would highly recommend. Helmets, maps and good local knowledge ensured a great day riding the beautiful Greenway. First class.

We arrived to westport bike shop in a panic on the eve of gaelforce as the front tyre on our bike had seized up! Luckily the expertise of the owner meant that it was fixed in seconds and despite saving the day he refused to be paid for his services as it was a simple solution. He also explained the cause and solution to us very clearly to avoid a recurrence! Top class customer service, i would highly recommend the westport bike shop!!

My wife and our 4 young children popped in last Saturday afternoon after mentioning the Greenway over breakfast on our caravan weekend. After convincing the kids that a bike ride would be great fun I found Westport bike hire on Google, and what a find! Turned out the shop was 6 minutes from us. The minute we walked in we were greeted by Colin who made us feel like we were professional cyclists whilst fitting us with helmets and adjusting seats etc. Great fun all round and off we went on super brand new bicycles. Colin also advised us where to have lunch in Newport along the route which was another great hit called Kelly's Kitchen. After being greeted by an Irish trad band outside the cafe we then enjoyed and incredible lunch. (I won't reveal all the delights of Kelly's kitchen in this post as this is about Westport bike hire.) Fast forward to part 2.
Over lunch my youngest daughter of 9 announced she was too tired to cycle back! Long story short, Colin arrived to the rescue in his minibus and saved the day. Great adventure all round! Will complete the whole route next time!

Hired bikes today and cycled to Mulranny and back from Westport and it was breathtaking. Next time it will be to Achill for a pint and the shuttle bus back.

We hired our bikes from TWBS, booked the bikes online the day before for free and the service was exceptional. Very friendly, informative, well priced and I'll be back to use them again very soon.
