The Great Western Greenway – Castlebar Network

The Great Western Greenway – Castlebar Network (National Museum – Lough Lanngh – Rehins Wood) follows the Castlebar River and runs parallel to the N5, it takes in a section of Castlebar town and continues along the line of the river until it connects with Lough Lannagh, it follows a portion of the lake and eventually connects to a beautiful woodland located near Islandeady.  The trail offers a pleasant mix of fields, riverside woodlands, small sections of quiet country back roads and urban settings.  This greenway forms part of a network of Greenways and cycle network around Mayo.

Please note that there is a marked on-road section that will direct you from Islandeady to the Greenway at Westport

The Greenway has been designed for shared use by leisure walkers, joggers and cyclists and is suitable for people with easy to moderate levels of fitness.  The route is mainly traffic-free and off- road with a solid surface, either tarred or compacted and can be used to commute to and from school or work. The Greenway is waymarked using blue text and symbols on a white background panel.  It is recommended that hybrid or a mountain bike be used along this trail.  All dogs must be on a lead and under control.
