I highly recommend West Ireland Cycling if you want to have a cycling adventure of a life time. I went to Ireland with my sister and we had never been there before. We were two women with a dream to ride our bikes through the West Coast of Ireland. We went with a "fluid" plan and book knowledge but no personal connections there. Destiny smiled upon us in the name of Liam Codd, owner of West Coast Cycling. He fitted us for touring bikes, taught us how to ride on the opposite side of the road than we were used to, had us practice riding his bikes (gears were opposite also) outside his shop, rerouted our trip to suit our abilities and drove us away from the city to the gorgeous country of the Connemara where we did not have fight to stay alive in city traffic. Liam set us up with a fantastic hostel (The Old Monastery Hostel) and personally introduced us to the proprietor. I cannot list all of the care and kindness we received from our new friend and we truly felt like we had an angel following us and keeping us safe for the two weeks of our trip. I left Ireland with a deep feeling that the Irish people are the kindest people I have ever met, and Liam the kindest of all. I am fond of "bike" people wherever I meet them and my sister and I are so appreciative of our friend at West Coast Cycling and all he did for us. Go and have a blast and know someone is there who cares. I hope to return one day soon. Lisa Nixon Magalia California
Had a great tour around the west of Ireland. The staff of West Ireland Cycling are very friendly. I had one minor problem while on tour but they fixed it promptly for me. They also have a great selection of bikes and they let me choose my own which I found was great. Thankyou!
