About Us

Who are we?

Established in 1985, Buckley Cycles has over 35 years experience in the cycling industry. With two stores situated in the Midlands we pride ourselves on being able to offer a huge variety of products relating to all areas of cycling including road, mountain, e-bikes and children’s bikes. We also have a wide range of cycling equipment and services available such as cycling apparel, accessories and workshop repairs.

In addition to our bricks and mortar stores, we continue to build our online presence through our website which is constantly being developed and improved. Here you can browse and view a sample of our product range or make a purchase for delivery or collection.

Cycling is a pastime that everybody can enjoy; from those who want to be active and improve their health to performance athletes we are here to help assist you with whatever queries or questions you may have. Our staff are passionate about cycling with interests spanning leisure, racing, mountain biking and audaxing and are always happy to talk ‘all things bike’ with you.

If there are times when you get fed up with the Irish weather, fear not, we can help assist you with that also. We offer tailor made activity holidays from our beautifully restored ‘Finca’ in South East Spain. Nothing like sun, sea and climbing to help get your mojo back! Don’t take our word for it, view our website cyclinginspain.com and have a look for yourselves.

Over the decades we have built up a loyal customer base over the years which we are immensely grateful for. Our team and their wealth of knowledge and experience is what keeps customers coming back. We do our best to understand your needs and give the best advice and the finest service we can.

We love what we do and that’s why we are one of the best bike shops in the Midlands.

Being a local family run business we have plenty of ties to the communities where we have settled. Over the years our staff have not only participated in countless charity cycles and local sportives but also helped to marshal and provide back up to participants (who could forget the big yellow and blue van!).

We have also supported and taken part in various school and college programmes promoting basic bicycle maintenance and safety and have been invited to advertise the physical and mental benefits of cycling to employees in various local businesses during Health and Wellbeing weeks.  

Thanks for visiting our website today. If you have any questions or need some advice, feel free to contact us. We are always happy to help!

Our history:

Founded in 1985, owners Pat & Mary Buckley opened their first store in Moate, Co. Westmeath. Four years later they opened a second store in the Tanyard, Tullamore which was then followed in quick succession by stores in Roscommon, 1996, and a venture into the ever-expanding town of Athlone in May 1997.

Currently we have two stores operating in Westmeath and Offaly; the Kenna Centre, Dublin Road, Athlone is home to a large premises with warehouse adjacent. There is private parking on site while our Tullamore store is situated on Bury Quay beside the scenic Canal Bridge. Why not hop onto the Grand Canal path where you can travel all the way to Shannon Harbour.
