        Beautiful biking in Connemara
        Great way to see Connemara. Martin was incredibly attentive. Bikes were in excellent condition. The views were amazing. Felt very safe on the small, scenic back roads. Highly recommend.

        Off the beaten track to see Connemara.
        We had a thoroughly enjoyable experience with Martin, our guide and the owner of Fat Tyre Bike Galway. The bikes were new and perfect for the tour. Martin provided some good information about the surroundings. We ultimately had lunch at a great pub that he recommended - while he went to get the van to pick us up. I would absolutely recommend Martin and his Fat Tyre Bike tour.

        Martin was amazing. He made sure we all understood how to ride and didn’t have any questions. He made an exciting adventure even better.

        Fantastic E-Bike Experience
        Martin operates a safe and fun e-bike tour through the region. Our group of 8 riders were treated to a fantastic 2-hour experience that took us through the beautiful countryside. The route was quiet with few cars, lots of sheep, some llamas and horses. The e-bikes were in great shape and easy to operate after a short instruction. A truly great way to experience the beauty of this part of Ireland. I highly recommend this experience and Martin as a tour operator.

        Phenomenal experience!
        First time on E bikes and this was our very first activity on our 8 day Vagabond Wild Irish Rover tour. 25km loop of Loche Mask. Martin was the most amazing guide, kept us safe and taught us well. Scenery was spectacular! Beautiful stone fences, sheep, cows, border collies, churches, farms and farm houses and we enjoyed all 4 seasons including a bout of hail. Martin handed out gloves when needed! This was one of the highlights of our trip! Highly recommend.

        A Must Do Experience
        Fantastic day trip off the beaten path in Connemara. Martin was a wonderful guide and the vistas and countryside were amazing. We’d never been on electric bikes before, but they were so easy to get the hang of and handle - really fun. Pick up and drop off at our Airbnb in Galway City - couldn’t ask for better!!

        An unforgettable adventure!!
        The Connemara Tour by Electric Fat Tyre Bike was a true adventure!! Martin was the best guide. He was professional and very patient, even with someone like me who has not ridden a bike in years. The views of Connemara were to die for. The best part of the tour was the stop at the sheep dog demonstration. This is a definite recommendation for anyone looking for excitement while in Ireland.

        An Unforgettable Adventure on the Discover Connemara Tour!
        The Discover Connemara Tour by Electric Fat Tyre Bike was an absolute riot! From the moment we were picked up at the hotel to the practice and instruction session, Martin’s focus on safety and professionalism was impressive. Our group of four had a blast exploring Connemara. The landscape was absolutely stunning. Martin’s passion for the area and the bikes was contagious. The perfect guide with a great sense of humor. An unexpected highlight? A stop at the sheepherder's farm, where a goat hilariously tried to ride one of our bikes! Unforgettable memories were made on this tour. Don't miss out on your own adventure!

        An amazing experience in the Connemara area!
        This full day electric fat bike tour with Martin was the last day of our trip and what a way to end! This was such a highlight for me. We got super lucky with the weather, which made the day that much better, but Martin was a fantastic host. He was knowledgeable, conscientious about safety and great company to be around. I highly recommend this tour if you want a fun, outdoor experience to get a great sense of the landscape and the Connemara area.

        E-bike Tour of Connemara!
        BEST TOUR! This was the highlight our trip to Ireland. My husband and I were lucky enough to take a private full day tour on e-bikes with Martin of Fat Bike Galway. We were picked up from our hotel and driven out to Connemara to begin our adventure. Full day of chatting, touring, biking.... just perfect in every way! Martin was a great host and tour guide as we cycled by pastures and sheep and beautiful scenery. We even stopped for a slight diversion to watch sheep herding and learned about the dogs that are full trained to do so. (added and optional but again, so much fun) Our whole trip we could't stop talking about this tour and how great it was. Definitely would do it again. Thank you Martin!

      Absolutely amazing experience! This was my first time coming to Galway so I wanted to see the city for everything it has to offer. Firstly, Martin had clear and precise communication from booking the tour. I was carefully guided through the experience and safety procedures before we left off for the journey and felt completely at ease with what to expect. The ride itself was nothing short of magnificent and I certainly got to see amazing parts of Galway. Even some parts of the journey which we experienced rain were beautiful! You travel at a comfortable pace with a good few stops where Martin describes certain artifacts and local history. I found Martin to be an extremely wonderful chap who has a passion for what he does. He constantly made sure I was safe and happy on the trip. The bike equipment was top notch and I had high expectations coming from an elite cycling background. All in all I would highly recommend this experience. Personally I will be back again.

      This experience is a MUST while you’re in Galway. Gorgeous landscapes and we felt safe and taken care of the entire time. The fat bikes are easy to use and a fantastic way to cover long distance and explore the city and countryside. Martin and Michael are super hosts, friendly and excellent storytellers. Five stars!

      Take a fat tire bike add electricity, the Irish countryside, family then shake it up with Martin and you’ve got yourself a great time!
      We planned for a full day in Connemara but the weather turned for the worse. Martin quickly worked with us to deliver a great riding experience to get a “Taste of it” - and the trip was FANTASTIC!
      And it’s not just the ride - from planning to pick up to travel to conversation to evening recommendations - Martin is on top of it all…. And safety is a clear priority (helmets, vests, instruction, and road navigation). We would do it all again!! Highly recommended. Family of 4.

      This was the HIGHLIGHT of my trip to Galway, except for the pubs at night...

      Martin was an absolute pleasure to have as the leader of the tour.

      First, his sense of humor makes sure that you feel welcome and cared for, and his focus on safety is priority and evident throughout the tour, as evidenced by his awareness for those (like me) who are accustomed to driving/biking on the right hand side of the road - he directed me to immediate safety a few times, after I instinctively went to the incorrect side of the road.
      Second, he is enthusiastic about sharing his passion for Ireland and seeing Ireland though connection with activity.
      Lastly, the instruction for the bikes were easy to use! I would take this tour again and highly recommend to others.

      We had such a fun afternoon riding around the countryside with Martin! The views were incredible, and it was a great way to get out, get some exercise, and have a blast. Martin was highly knowledgeable and provided some interesting stops for us along the way. The E-Bikes were fun to ride and looked practically brand new. Additionally, Martin was highly concerned with safety and ensured everyone was comfortable with the bikes and we were aware of what to expect by way of hills and turns. You could tell they take safety very seriously.

      Our family did this tour in early April on our visit to Galway and loved it. Martin was fantastic at making sure that every need was accounted for from transportation to safety to the quality of the bicycles. The tour itself was beautiful and Martin was wonderful providing information about the local area. Martin himself was incredibly friendly and a joy to chat with. I highly recommend this tour.

      My first time on an E-bike and I loved the experience! Our guide was wonderful. He did frequent check-ins to make sure we were all ok, safe and enjoying the ride. He was knowledgeable on the area and fun! The tour was filled with beautiful vistas. This was probably the highlight of my vacation in Ireland.

      BOOK THIS TOUR !!! Our family of 4 was lucky enough to have the opportunity to hang out with Martin who guided us through an unforgettably stunning tour of Connemara on a 1/2 day e-bike tour. Pre-trip communication was top-notch; from initial communication, to helpful tips for a comfortable ride, weather checks and finally pick-up and drop-off locations, no detail was left unmentioned. Martin was great! Prompt, thoughtful, humorous, informative and accommodating. Our ride was safe and leisurely, perfect for all level of riders. We loved the tranquility of the ride and the region, especially stopping to pet some horses and gazing out at the sea while sipping on the hot cocoa and coffees we purchased from the lovely little town where we took a break. The e-bikes were a joy to ride, allowing each biker to customize their level of effort and the fat-tires added an extra level of stability and suspension that other e-bikes lack. Martin was even kind enough to take a lovely panoramic video of our family mid-ride... a great added touch! Such wonderful memories for our family and one of the highest-valued experiences we've had the pleasure of undertaking. I simply cannot recommend this tour more highly. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Martin!

      This bike trip was so much fun! We got to see areas of Galway that you wouldn’t normally get to see. We stopped in an adorable coastal town and had a nice lunch. Martin was very nice and was always quick to respond via email with any questions we had. He is such a nice guy! The e-bikes make is a super easy and smooth ride that anyone can do.

      I highly recommend taking this tour when visiting Galway!
