Great Western Greenway

Great Western Greenway

Mayo’s infamous Great Western Greenway is a 44km off-road route stretches from Westport to Achill Island, taking in Newport and Mulranny along the way. You couldn’t ask for a more picturesque setting, as you drift from the bustling town of Westport along to the pretty village of Newport, where you move on along the coast to Mulranny and finally out to the gorgeous island of Achill.

It’s best to allow for a full day if you want to cycle the whole route, and bike hire companies will come and pick you up at various points. What’s great is that you don’t have to cycle the whole route – you can just cycle the final 14km from Mulranny to Achill, which is a fairly flat path with views that are well worth the effort.
