We opened Westport Bike Shop in 2011 as there was a huge demand for cycling services due to the recent cycling activities which have mushroomed in the west of Ireland.
We offered bike sales and repairs initially to the cyclists who were mainly local but to the many who visited the area to take part in such events as Gaelforce and Sea2Summit. But just at this time the brilliant tourism project the Great Western Greenway had been completed and this encouraged more people to get fit and take up cycling, and also there is now a huge demand for bike hire/rental from visitors to the area.
Since we opened the doors of the Westport Bike Shop, the interest and participation of cycling in this area is such that we could honestly claim that this area is the cycling adventure hub of Ireland, due to the scenery and the facilities which have been set up just for cycling activity breaks and competitions.
The Wild Atlantic Way, The Great Western Greenway, Gaelforce, Sea2summit, Clew Bay, Achill Island, Connemara, are just some of the events and attractions that can be easily cycled from Westport and our bike shop. You will also find some of the best accommodation available in and around Westport as well to cater for visitors but also Westport is known to be the best town in Ireland for tourism.
