The Great Western Greenway
The Great Western Greenway – Ireland’s first greenway – is a walking and cycling trail in County Mayo on the Wild Atlantic Way. Running 49km around the Eastern and Northern stretches of Clew Bay in Co Mayo.
It begins in the popular seaside town of Westport and traverses through the quaint towns and villages of Newport and Mulranny before coming to a gentle finish at Achill Sound.
Offering mild gradients courtesy of its initial beginning as a railway line and with magnificent landscape backdrops such as Clew Bay, Clare Island, the mythical holy mountain Croagh Patrick and the Nephin Beg Mountains which forms Part of Wild Nephin National Park.
You will travel through bogs, woodlands and active farmland, while spotting wildlife and flora, the Greenway has something unique for each and every visitor.
The multi award winning Great Western Greenway “was voted the top three cycle trails in the world, by the New York Times”
