Paul Harmon was a terrific and knowledgable tour guide, a raconteur par excellence and a Cordon Bleu chef! And did I mention a patient and persistent sleuth? He helped my good friend find his ancestral farm, and in the process took us to the most amazing views of the Mayo countryside. Thanks Paul, and may the luck of the Irish... More

I was here to find out more about my ancestry. Paul, our tour guide, went out of his way in help finding the home of my ancestors in County Mayo. I was actually able to stand on the grounds where once stood the home of my great grandparents who left for America in the late 1800s. I also was able... More

Such an amazing experience! Paul took us on a great route with some phenomenal views, and he also showed us a couple greats spots off-route with more spectacular views. We had the option of riding regular bikes or electric bikes. I tried the electric bike, which I have never tried before, and it made the experience so much more enjoyable!... More

The only thing Paul couldn't guarantee was sunshine, but everything else was perfect. He was a great guide! We had a group of 12 of us, all of us at different levels as far as fitness. But we all could stay together with the electric bikes that a few of us rented, (even though some didn't really need them). The... More

On Tuesday, September 29, 2015 our group of four (all in our 60s) spent an amazing day with Paul Harmon. We had perfect weather, sunny and cool and saw the most beautiful countryside! A short time into our ride Paul served us coffe, tea and breakfast treats while we soaked up our surroundings. We continued on our wonderful bikes to... More

Paul at Electric Escapes is the best. From the moment he picked us up at our B & B until he dropped us off, we felt we were in very capable hands. The electric bikes are a tremendous boost on the hills and he introduced us to some beautiful off road trails. The morning stop for a coffee break was... More

We had a group of 30 cyclists on a hen weekend in Westport. Paul and his team went above and beyond to make our experience as fun as possible - they tailored a route specifically for us to suit the ability/fitness levels of the group and facilitated meeting us/dropping us back at our hotel! We had a fabulous lunch stop... More

I really cannot recommend Electric Escapes highly enough, we had such an amazing day!! I've been to westport before and had previously cycled the Greenway but with Electric Escapes we saw so much more- scenery off the beaten track from woodland to coastal views. Not only that but the electric bikes made the day so easy, we could just focus... More

Myself and my wife hired electric bikes from Paul a few years ago. He was amazing. He couldn't do enough for us. He deserves all the excellent reviews he receives.

What a great day out. Paul and his staff were a delight to deal with. Nothing was to much bother. The bikes are fantastic and easy to ride, even for amatuer cyclists. The scenery is stunning. Westport itself has a lot to offer, but for us the icing on the cake was the day out on one of Electric Escapes,... More
