We completed the Greenway from Newport to Achill Sound last Saturday afternoon. With only an afternoon to spare we decided to start in Newport rather than complete the less interesting section of the route from Westport. I rang Greenway Cycle Hire and 40 mins later we drove out to Newport and were on our way. The day was spectacular and... More

This was our second trip on greenway. Even though or was wet it was a super day. The bikes were great. The owner was a gentleman. Nothing was any trouble. Highly recommended

The husband and I hadn't been on bicycles for over a decade but the bikes provided were in great condition and comfortable to ride. We did the round trip ride from Newport to Mulranny and back which meant we were refunded 5 Euro each as we didn't use the shuttle service. 15 Euro each for a well-serviced bicycle for the... More

A young family, all bikes hired, cycled from Achill to Mulranny. It was fantastic. Noel couldn't have been more helpful. 6yr and 9 yr old loved it. As did 2 adults. Scenery beautiful. Throughly recommended.

We booked these bikes two days before arriving to Newport to cycle towards Achill Island. The staff were friendly, welcoming and very informative about the route to Achill island, the local amenities and the optional stopping points for the group. They provided a service to take our bikes back and we were really surprised at how cheap it was to... More

Would highly recommend the lads here at this bike hire company. Very accommodating, great bikes to make our 32 km cycle very comfortable and enjoyable. Even our youngest cyclist, the 9 year old in our company was able to manage the trip from Newport to Achill. We were collected from Achill and brought back to Newport. Great service highly recommend.

Myself and my husband rented 2 bikes to cycle from Newport to Mulranny. Found the guy we dealt with really nice and friendly, the bikes were in great condition and helmets were provided, and we had a lovely cycle along the Greenway. On returning the bikes we were refunded €5 each for not using the return bus. Highly recommended &... More

Hired bikes to cycle from Newport to Achill for 2 days. We were staying overnight in Achill and cycling back next day. Met a lovely friendly man - Robert , at the bike hire and he organised to bring our bags on their shuttle bus to our hotel in Achill which was just fantastic. Didn't fancy carrying the bags on...

Great service, friendly and helpful. Bikes were in good condition. Pity our ones had no basket. Bus was waiting for us when we got to Achill.
