Our bike ride along the Great Western Greenway with Clew Bay Bike Hire was the best day of our two-week trip in Ireland. We showed up at the Westport Clew Bay shop at 9am without a reservation, but Dave (one of the owners) took great care of us. The van was full, so he suggested that we drive to Achill and he would meet us there. That ended up working out perfectly, as we wanted to begin from Achill and bike to Newport. Dave met us at Achill and off we went. My husband and I rented two power-assisted bikes, while our other family members rented regular ones. They had no trouble as most of the trail is flat, but we were glad we had the power assisted ones. Going from Achill to Newport the wind is at your back, which is helpful. The views are breathtaking. This is a MUST DO if you are in this area. Dave is super nice, extremely helpful, and full of tips for the trip. He carefully fit us with helmets and vest to keep us safe. He promptly picked us up in Newport and brought us back to our car in Achill. We highly recommend Clew Bay Bike Hire!

My daughter and I cycled the Mulranney to Newport route in crazy weather - we only had this one chance to do it together so we were not cancelling. It was fun zooming along in complete safety -We had not been on bikes for quite a while . We loved having no traffic to worry about and just enjoying the sounds (even the pouring rain !)and sights . The scenery was fabulous . We did manage to get some dry moments too .
The guys in Clew Bay Bike hire could not have been more helpful. They suggested we reverse our original route to give us more flexibility . They phoned us on route from Galway and arranged pick up in Newport -where we left car- and the a lift to Mulranney - where we collected bikes. Gearoid was then available in Newport to collect bikes at end of cycle. The bikes are well kitted out and contact number is visible on them
We knew we were in good hands and hope to be back for the full route in finer weather next Spring .

Great customer service, good combinations with bike to cycle as far as you like/can and lift back for us and the bikes...
As we grouped up without having ridden bikes for quite a while, it was great comfort knowing we could just focus on enjoying as much as we enjoyed...
with no hassle of having to plan on on the spot...just beautiful sceneries and our laughters...
Greenway is improving in safety and food spots along the way make the whole experience a manageable adventure for all levels of fitness.

Excellent, knowledgeable and helpful staff and good equipment, especially our 6& 7 yr olds bicycles and my husbands electric bike, would use this company again any time, hopefully the next time we will manage a longer cycle with no rain!!!

Wonderful business that cares about their clients. They were great with lunch suggestions also as we road the Greenway. I ran into a problem that was totally my fault but low and behold they came to my rescue. Very caring and most helpful. Thank you to the staff at Newport and Westport, you went above and beyond and I appreciated it.
