Mayo Coastal Cottages is a business run by family and friends from the home office. When we meet other people doing the same thing it is great to give some mutual support, especially if they have a service that will be really useful to our customers. We met Achill bikes recently and soon realized that people staying in the area would love to hire a bike for a day or two to explore this beautiful Island.
ACHILL BIKES Bicycle and Equipment Hire is based on Achill Island, County Mayo, on the Wild Atlantic Way. They provide bicycle hire and roadside assistance on the island of Achill.
Achill Bikes supply high quality electric, hybrid and mountain bikes, children’s bikes, kiddie trailers, tag-alongs and child seats. Really a one stop shop.
Achill Island, connected by a bridge to County Mayo in the West of Ireland, is an ideal location for a cycling holiday. Achill is the hub of the West Mayo Cycle Network that includes numerous alternative routes throughout the island. Picnic stops, local pubs and restaurants are dotted along the Achill Cycle Network, which offers breathtaking views of the wild Atlantic coastline. Achill has a wealth of historic sites and excellent facilities and activities. The island has a long history of human settlement, with megalithic tombs and promontory forts dating back more than 5,000 years.
Achill boasts five Blue Flag beaches, Europe’s highest sea cliffs and large tracts of Atlantic blanket bog between the two peaks, Croaghaun and Slievemore, and the majestic Minaun Cliffs of Keel. Walking and cycling along the quiet lanes and trails is a wonderful way to discover the island’s interior.

“Amazing experience getting to know the island riding bikes. Michael showed us different routes to take so we could visit the nicest parts of the island. I really recommend to ask for a bike and enjoy a day out of the big cities. Loved the dog by the way, best receptionist we ever had.”
“We had the most fantastic day out cycling on the bikes across Achill. We hired the E-bikes and I was nervous at first about using these but with a bit of guidance from Michael, (the owner) and a little trial run I was off in no time…it’s the best way to get out and explore this beautiful part of Ireland”
