The Great Western Greenway

The Great Western Greenway is one of the most beautiful and scenic off-road walking and cycling trails in Ireland. It is a great opportunity to escape the busy urban life and enjoy the beauty of the Mayo’s most stunning attractions. The 42km trail follows the old Westport to Achill railway and is divided into three parts, Westport to Newport (11km), Newport to Mulranny (18km) and Mulranny to Achill (13km). Each stage of the greenway is surrounded by spectacular views and idyllic countryside.

Westport Bike Hire has bases in each town and village along the Greenway and you can pick up or drop off your bike at any location. This gives you the option to make your Greenway experience as long or as short as you like, making it suitable for all the family.

Stop off along the way at Mulranny’s Blue Flag beach or the blissful village of Newport to top off your Greenway experience.
