I gave this place a great review 2 years ago but sadly, things have changed. The cost of the cycle rental is still reasonable and it is great to get a lift out to the end of the Greenway. On arrival at Achill I was fitted out with a large framed bicycle and I went to take it for a... More

The staff were nice but the bikes were very ordinary. We had a great day out doing the Westport to Achill Cycle Greenway cycle trail. Clew Bay Bike Hire offer a package whereby they take you out to Achill by bus and you ride back. This was all pretty efficient. But the bikes were not great and were pretty uncomfortable.... More

Would highly recommend this company. Hired bikes and got dropped off at Achill. Then cycled back. They were very friendly and very organised. The bikes were in good working order. The trail was quiet and we had it mainly to ourselves.

We thought the service was brilliant! Very helpful and informative. Bikes where spot on. Route was fantastic with stunning views and spectacular scenery the entire way. We even had time for a nice couple of pints at the end to top it all off. Dave is a complete gentleman 👍

I used the bike rental service for a 42km one way route on the great western greenway from Westport to Achill sound with pick up by shuttle bus at the specified time. The guys looking after the service were professional, friendly and informative. The bikes were quality Giant machines and well suited to the terrain. I would be happy to... More

My husband and I stopped in on a Saturday morning to reserve bikes for the following week. The woman on duty helped us choose the best weather day, section of the Greenway to ride, and the package best suited for us. She took all our info and a down payment. She seemed very knowledgeable and organized. When we arrived on... More

My wife and I decided on a lark to take the Greenpath bike trip between Achill to Newport. We visited the shop on Sunday and the weather was nasty (rain AND heavy winds). The young woman who helped us encouraged us to do the ride the next day, and we're really glad we did. (There's no way to really predict... More
