Great Western Greenway


Escape the bustle of urban life on the 42km 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 starts at Achill Sound. In 2011 the Great Western Greenway was awarded the EDEN European Destination of Excellence Award for Sustainable Tourism.


The Gourmet Greenway – Discover Mayo’s Finest Food Trail

The Gourmet Greenway is a food trail devised by Mulranny Park Hotel, in association with several Mayo food producers, to showcase the wonderful artisan food in the vicinities of Mulranny, Newport, Westport and Achill. Using the Achill to Westport Great Western Greenway as its backdrop, the Gourmet Greenway food trail highlights the great selection of food producers near to and along the route of the Great Western Greenway. There are four of these artisan producers in the Achill area – Achill Island Sea Salt, Keem Bay Fish Products, Curraun Blue Sea Trout Farm and Achill Mountain Lamb.

Where possible, we encourage you to visit and purchase the fare of the producers along the Gourmet Greenway and build this unique gastro experience into your outdoor activities in an area of unrivalled beauty.
