“The Blue Bicycle Tearooms, Newport, Co Mayo - A Foodie Haven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

A gem of a place! Well worth a visit. Family run business, offering the best of local Irish produce. Serves tasty lunch and afternoon tea. Everything home-made. Hot fresh paninis - delicious, as well as gourmet salads - sure hit the spot before hitting the greenway on bikes!
For those with a sweet tooth, I recommend the Princess Grace cake - divine with freshly whipped cream. Great coffee too. Same coffee blend as to what's served in Harrods of London! All in all, a beautiful, quaint, Victorian tea-room serving delicious food and reasonably priced.

“Amazing Place for a Bike Ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

We were so glad we rented bikes from Clew Bay Bike Hire and rode on the greenway during our visit to Westport. This former rail line peaceful and manageable for all levels of cyclists, and the scenery was so gorgeous.

We chose to pick up our bikes in Mulranny and ride to Achill Island and back-- about 11 kilometers each way. We encountered stunning water and mountain views, farmland and friendly sheep along the way. If we had more time, we would liked to have ridden on the other legs of this amazing bike path. Don't miss it if you are in the area.

“need to back to finish the rest of it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

I completed the Newport to Mulranny section and while a little challenging in places - generally very doable and a great way to spend a couple of hours - Clew Bay Bike Hire couldn't have been better
