Biking.ie was great from start to end. Booking was smooth and we received a follow up confirmation from our guide the day prior. My 16 year old son and I are reasonably fit, but had no mountain bike riding experience. Following a brief skill evaluation and discussion of our goals, we were off. We wanted to learn some skills and ride some "real" trails. While we spent some time on fire roads, most was on undulating trails and boardwalks; a very fun and challenging growth experience for us! Our guide was awesome! Patient, thorough and instructive. I remain impressed to have had someone of his caliber... the winner of the 2013 Red Bull Road Rage.... I am sure all the guides are great, but have to suggest you ask for Janos Kohler!

Biking.ie has knowledgeable workers who will help anyone out. No matter what experience you've had on a bike before, they'll be patience and teach you the ropes. Ballinastoe is beautiful to top it off!

We (2 adults + 2 teens) had made reservations in advance and agreed the size and types of bikes. It all went very well, the bikes were ready when we arrived and in good condition. The instructor had time to focus on details and also teach us the basics of MTB riding (although we had some previous experience this was very good and can be recommended). The trails were a mixture of easy to intermediate (suitable for our level). We biked up to the “summit” with a fantastic view of the Wicklow mountains. We enjoyed the MTB tour very much.

We rented two race bikes for the 'Escape from Spike Island' Triathlon. One of them was brand-new. Included was the helmet, some tools and an air pump. We also needed SPD pedals, was not a problem at all.
The pick-up as well as the drop off went smoothly. It was even possible to return the bikes around 1000pm. One call and the staff came over. If I ever need a race bike near Dublin I will defintely come back!

To British Columbia and the north shore standards, I would not consider this high risk or adventure travel, but the true irish scenery and quality of the ride is breathtaking! Not far from Dublin, we rode up the ballinastoe trail.. The 14k loop, approx 2hrs at a leisure pace. Some real flowy runs downhill, and some small inclines to get your heart pumping. Good quality bikes, (single suspension is fine) and top notch service. Thanks again for the memories!
