Reviews from tripadvisor
Found a wonderful shop on Market Street
All Things Connemara is a great shop, it had so many beautiful things, and so many things would make great and unusual things to bring home. There were little round pins by INISHTOURS that had different art on them. I bought four of them for less than 8 euros and wish I had bought more. I also bought a pair of earrings that were delicate and reasonably priced and will be a great reminder of my trip. The shop is adjacent to the bike shop. Make sure you stop in..
Great bike hire service
We hired two bikes on a lovely day in September. The staff recommended the sky loop road and provided maps, helments, high vis jackets and lots of great local advice and tips. Really enjoyable day. The bikes were in great condition and highly recommend this place!
We had booked the rental of two bikes online. We came in the morning to pick up the bikes and were met by very friendly and competent staff. Very service minded. They provided maps and very good local knowledge and tips. The bikes were in excellent condition. We spent two days cycling the Connemara area. Wonderful landscape, friendly people and joyful riding. Not too strenuous. Plenty of pubs and restaurants along anywhere you would choose to travel. Still you are in a wonderful nature. Will recommend strongly to anyone fond of cycling in a natural environment.
