Bike Shops in Kerry

Can anyone recommend a decent bike shop in Kerry. Looking to get into cycling specifically for exercise etc and possibly do a couple of charity cycles ... but at a loss at finding a decent bike shop in Kerry.

I visited three in Tralee weekend before last;


O'Hallorans, which I'd planned to rent a bike off but were all out. He sent me over to Jim Caball's who sell but don't rent, who sent me on to Tralee cycle and nursery supplies who sell (and rent!) bikes.

Very helpful crowd, the various Tralee bike shop fellas, all with a varied selection of road bikes, hybrids, etc... on offer. Shame no one in Kerry rents road bikes though, guess the market isn't really there.

in killarney o sullivans are excellent and the biggest. near the cathedral. Denis o Shea the big little bike shop in woodlawn is also excellent and very knowledgeable. now big in mountain and down hill biking but has a good pedigree in road racing. joe shea in killorglin is very competent and v helpful.

http://www.ibike.ie/ are new and seem to know their stuff but I ve had no dealings. good luck
