We hired 4 bikes and a child trailer from clew bay bike hire. The service was friendly, helpful and could not be improved. We drove to Newport as recommended and then we're sized up for suitable bikes and a safety check done on them all...this didn't take long. We were then taken by shuttle to Mulranney to cycle the 18... More

We rented three bikes from Clew Bike hire and I would have to say they were very professional from the time we phoned to book the bikes till we left them back after our run on the Greenway. We parked our car in Newport and Dave from Clew Bike hire dropped us out to Achill Sound so we could cycle... More

We had a wonderful time doing the Greenway and the service offered by Clewbay bike hire was excellent. The bikes were really good and right size for all. We had a problem with the breaks in one bike and the guys.were out to replace it within 10 mins. Beautiful scenery. Strongly recommend this and using this service.

This company were excellent from start to finish. We hired out bikes from Achill Sound and they have bases in main stop offs along the way to Westport. They provide the bike, hi vis bib, helmet and bell. You can also rent extra bits like gel cover for seat. They match you up to bike height wise etc. You then... More

We did a last minute bike hire and caught the free shuttle to Achill. When we got there, a nasty driven rain kicked up and would have been blowing into our faces the whole time if we continued. They gave us a ride back and a full refund with no charge. I'm pretty sure that's not their normal policy, but... More

Good service, and good bikes, very organised. They drove us out to Achill Island and pointed out places to stop for snacks or dinner, and places of interest. Then we cycled on the greenway and stopped in Newport for lunch, was then only a 11 KM back to Westport. We all really enjoyed it and would highly recommend it
