Great Western Greenway

Escape the bustle of urban life on the 42km now 49km Great Western Greenway, the longest off-road walking and cycling trail in Ireland. 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. The Achill end of the Greenway now starts at Cashel following the addition of a 5km extension in 2023. In 2011 the Great Western Greenway was awarded the EDEN European Destination of Excellence Award for Sustainable Tourism.
