Thanks to the beautiful surroundings of Cork and the good service from Cork Bike Hire, we had a very nice day. the bicycles are well maintained and a bicycle was available in the right size for each of our group. Fiona and her colleagues are very friendly and helpful.

I can't thank Jamie enough for teaching my son to cycle and being so patient. I would highly recommend.

Tim Wills 


I can't say enough good things about Jamie who we met on the Midleton-Mogeely greenway cycle 3 weeks ago and has subsequently changed my sons life for the better teaching him to ride a bike. He's sound as a pound and so patient. I want to shout out from the rooftops to ALL that Jamie can help when you think there's no hope. Thank you so so much.



Great bikes, easy to book and the girl working there was extremely nice. Couldn't fault the place.

We rented three electric bikes from Cork Bike Hire and had a wonderful outing. The bikes were in amazing condition and the sights along the recommended route were breathtaking. The staff were accommodating, friendly and patient and the option of electric bikes made the journey far more smooth and enjoyable for each of us. I highly recommend visiting Cork Bike Hire and we will definitely be returning.

We learned that hybrid bicycles refer to the type of bicycle that combines the shape of racing and urban or mountain bikes. We took a beautiful walk towards blackrock and then towards passage west. I would highly recommend this company, Jamie and Fiona have been very attentive to me.
