Reasonable prices and super helpful friendly staff. Great after sales service too. We had a small issue with the stabilisers on my daughters bike and they … More fit brackets to fix them at no additional cost. Definitely would recommend

I left my bike to be serviced here since I was not in a hurry as I was going to be out for a week. I had a positive interaction once when I needed a last … More minute brake tuning after an attempt was made to steal my front wheel. I told the clerk I needed the basic service + new brake pads and asked them to call me if they could spot anything urgent to fix before taking any action. A week later after my return I called the shop to be sure the bike was ready and they told me they had, to my amazement, replaced not only brake pads, but also the rear cassette, inner cable, chain and brake pads at a charge of 125 euros, nearly triple my expectation. I told I didn't expect to have all of these parts replaced since no one called me to confirm if these were OK to be fixed, despite that on the phone I was told they had called me but I have zero calls missed for the whole duration the bike was left in the shop. After thinking about it, I agreed to pay for the parts replaced, thought it'd be insurance on making the bike hold a little longer so I accepted to pay for these. Low and behold, I've never had my bike skip chain ever in the 8 years I owned it and it finally started after the parts/adjustment. I have returned to the shop since and one of the techs has tried to "adjust" the derailleur, which did improve slightly (no skipping since) but nonetheless the bike is still a mess, gear shifting making considerable mechanical noise and not shifting nearly as smoothly as before since placing my trust on these cowboys. I will make sure to let all local dublin cycling communities know this experience.
Avoid this place at all possible costs (or rather, don't just trust me, but read other 1/2 star reviews. This goes as bad as having your bike sold by accident, to wheels that aren't properly fixed, etc. It's just one of those things that are red flag and had I not had a positive experience with a small tuning before I would not have considered this shop without doing the due diligence of reading the reviews of.)

The staff is diligent, friendly and always they are in a good mood, even on Mondays, so yes, that is the magic combination for The Bike Shop in Dublin 8, are you busy or in a pinch, no problem, come along, I recommend it.
