With brands that you won’t find in any other bike shop in Ireland
We are located in a yard just outside Lucan, it is not a walk in shop , but we can meet there by appointment to try out bikes or collect a purchase.
All Dutch Bike Shop bikes come with a free health check covering the first 12 months after purchase, and thereafter will be followed by excellent after sales service. A wide range of practical and cycle chic accessories are also available, from ding-dong bells and cargo crates, baskets, bike trailers to helmets. People can also avail of cargo bike hire, which is a great way to ‘try before they buy’
Here at Dutch Bike Shop we don’t believe in having to dress up for the journey, instead on one of our bikes you dress for the destination and you will arrive in style.
Our bicycles are made to cycle comfortably in an upright position and bring your belongings with you on your bike instead of having to carry them in your back.
Our vision is to let everybody enjoy the comfortable practical cycles the Netherlands are famous for.
All our bikes can be purchased on the bike to work scheme and are backed up by our excellent after sales service with a full work shop on site.

We have a full workshop on site where we can look after any make or model bicycle, it doesn’t have to be bought here or even a Dutch bike. Frank is a fully qualified bicycle mechanic who can do anything from fixing a puncture, to replacing cables to bleeding the brakes on an expensive road bike and everything in between.
We stock a full range of parts and if it happens that it is not in stock we can order it in for you. We try to have most bikes that are dropped in to us ready to go the same day. There is no need to book in advance, but if you are under pressure for time let us know and we will do our best to get it done in the stated timeframe.
If you have purchased your bike from an online retailer and need to get it assembled professionally feel free to bring it down and we can do it for you. We will let you know how much this will cost when you bring the bike in to the shop.
