  • Everyone that rents a motorcycle from Motorcycle Rental Ireland, must be over 25, and hold a full motorcycle license for one year or more, which would allow them to ride the same motorcycle as they intend renting.
  • To carry a pillion passenger, riders must be over 30 years old.
  • Riders must hold a valid driver’s License from a country or state of permanent residence. This normal driving licence is all that is required. International license is perfectly acceptable but really not necessary.

  • 50% of overall rental fee is required at time of booking. Balance to be paid in full 1 month before pick up/arrival date.
  • Rental rates are calculated on full calendar days, mostly due to insurance reasons, NOT the 24 hour clock. Example, pick up on Monday and return the following Friday, you will be charged for 5 days.
  • All motorcycles are supplied with a full tank of petrol on pickup and should be returned with a full tank, a refuelling charge will apply if the motorcycle is returned without being filled.
  • All confirmed Rental Agreements deposits are non-refundable, but in the event of cancellation they can be used on an agreed alternative date by prior arrangement, or transferred to another person’s rental.
  • If riders choose to rent all-weather riding gear, an agreed damage deductible will apply if items are retuned damaged.
  • Motorcycles must be returned on time, no later than 4.30pm, this is a condition of the hire. Late return may result in extra hire costs, so please try to keep to the agreed return time.
  • Rental period may be extended once agreed by contacting Celtic Rider staff. This happens quite frequently due to clients wishing to extend their adventure tour of our island and Europe.
  • You must notify Celtic Rider staff if you become aware of a fault or if the motorcycle becomes un-roadworthy for any reason.
  • Occasionally, due to unforeseen circumstances, the chosen motorcycle is not available. In these cases we will offer a similar or upgraded motorcycle at no extra cost.
  • All bikes must be locked when not in use. All motorcycles are provided with cable locks for overnight parking.
  • Our damage deposit (insurance excess) varies between motorcycles. For all Honda and BMW bikes it is €1500, or €2500 if leaving the island of Ireland. For all Harley Davidsons and Indian’s the excess is €2000, or €3000 if leaving the island of Ireland. This is the maximum cost charged to you in the event of damage or theft. Your signature on your rental agreement page shall constitute authority for us to debit the final total charges against your account and your specific card-issuing organisation. If your bike is damaged or if you are involved in a traffic accident and it was not your fault, you must contact the Garda (Police) and report the incident, otherwise Celtic Rider may charge you for the damage.
  • Celtic Rider office staff must be notified immediately of any accidents, or motorcycle/s falling over etc.
  • In the event of an accident, the full damage deposit may be taken from the authorised credit card and held by Celtic Rider until repair estimates are received. Where an accident occurs after which our motorcycle is deemed to be un-roadworthy and which is the fault of the client, the rental contract is immediately terminated with no refund. Clients will be notified by email or phone of cost of repairs and any refund due will be refunded immediately.
  • Motorcycle Rental Ireland Ltd, t/a Celtic Rider, wants our customers to enjoy our service and the roads of Ireland and Europe. We provide our bikes to our renters in good faith that they will treat them with the respect that they deserve, and renters are expected to adhere to Irish and European laws while using our bikes.
  • Unpaid fines or penalties incurred by renters will be deducted from the deposit.

Since we started in 2007, the average mileage is 143 miles a day.
