The Great Western Greenway is another wonderful facility the West of Ireland offers for walkers and cyclists alike
The Great Western Greenway is 42km and is the longest off road walking and cycling trail in Ireland and passes through some of the most stunning scenery in the West of Ireland. Located only 30 minutes from Belmullet, County Mayo.
The World Class Great Western Greenway is a traffic free cycling and walking trail which follows the route of the renowned Westport to Achill railway which closed in 1937. Its development has been made possible by agreement of local landowners who have allowed permissive access to users to pass through their lands.
The final section of The Great Western Greenway, linking Westport to Achill in Co Mayo, was officially opened by An Taoiseach Enda Kenny.
The Newport to Mullranny section of the greenway opened last summer and has attracted over 50,000 visitors to date.
Why not order a packed lunch from The Talbot and head off walking at your own pace or hire a bike through local bike hire.
