What Do We Offer?
With stores in Athlone and Tullamore, Buckley Cycles offers a wide range of bikes and equipment for hire. Catering for both individuals and groups, we provide rental bikes tailored to activity - be it off-road mountain bikes, road racing bikes, hybrid and city bikes, and children’s bikes (we also have child-seats available).
What Is There To See?
The Midlands can often be overlooked when it comes to Ireland’s big tourist attractions; however there are many hidden gems that are easily accessible and well worth a visit. Why not hire bikes and bring them with you as you cruise the Shannon on your boat exploring the best of what the Midlands has to offer. You can choose from any of our recommended heritage sites and map routes of the local area or decide your own areas of interest. Take a spin on the ‘Old Rail Trail’ Athlone to Mullingar greenway, stroll around the Napoleonic Fortifications in Shannonbridge while on your way to the world famous monastic settlement of Clonmacnoise; witness the beautiful views of Lough Ree from Portlick, visit the 13th century abandoned medieval town of Rinn Duin located on a peninsula jutting out into Lough Ree; tour the wonderful Slieve Bloom Mountains or simply cycle alongside the Grand Canal. The possibilities are endless. There is no need to worry about distance or terrain either as we also have electric bikes available in our shops for rent. Whether sightseeing and tourist attractions are your thing or you simply want a stress-free day out with the family, cycling at your own pace and leisure allows you to enjoy life on a bike.
B&B, Hotel & Boat Owners
If you are a private boat owner, an individual or part of a group you can get from the lock to our shop with our huge selection of bikes catered especially around your needs and abilities. We use high-quality, reliable, road-ready bikes, maintained by our professional and experienced staff.

We can offer generous discounts for boat companies both established and up and coming, to help build your bicycle hire fleet, or we can supply you with a fleet of hire bikes for the season.
We also cater for B&B, guesthouse and hotel owners looking to offer hire facilities or “bed & bicycle” packages for guests. Read our tip list on how you can market this or contact us for more information. All our rental bikes are available for short and long term use.
