I thoroughly enjoyed this trip. My husband and I hired our bikes from Westport where we were fully kitted out by the very friendly and helpful staff and cycled as far as Mulranny. It was fantastic way to see this stunning part of Ireland and I would highly recommend it.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012 via mobile

Would highly recommend clewbay bike hire for trip on greenway. The service provided is great value bike hire and transport to Achill for twenty euros. The guy who runs the shop in westport is very nice and helpful. The guy who drives you and bikes to Achill knows a lot about the greenway and its history. A must do in westport

“Put yourself in their hands.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Hired bikes to cycle the Greenway and this was certainly a great experience. The experience was enhanced by the people ot Clew Bay who could not have been more helpful. They took us to Achill so we could start from there and they even have a depot at the Mulranny Park Hotel where we left the bikes so we could get a bite to eat in the Hotel. Initially I thought the bike hire prices were a little excessive but for the package you get it's good value. Only one complaint - we were told we could get gel saddle covers at Achill but when we arrived there were none. Take my word for it , we needed them.

“Not to be missed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012 via mobile

We chose to cycle from Achill back to Westport. There was a free shuttle service which took us to Achill. Along then way our driver gave us lots of tips about the cycle back, places to stop etc. Its a wonderful, cycle through spectacular scenery. The guys at Clew Bay Bike Hire do everything to make the day as easy as possible. The bikes were great, well maintained and really suited to the 40km cycle. As a preference I'd opt for the Achill to Westport direction as a cycle. Highly recommend the professional and friendly staff at Clew Bay Bike Hire.
