Trip Planner: Europe / Ireland / Western Ireland / Province of Connacht / County Mayo / Westport / The Great Western Greenway
Discover Ireland's western coastline on The Great Western Greenway, the country's longest off-road trail, intended for cyclists and walkers of all ages and fitness levels. The trail runs for about 42 km (26 mi), following the coastline from Westport to Achill. Free of motorized traffic for most of its length, this scenic trail runs along the route once used by a major railway line that was constructed in the 1890s and closed in 1937. The trail meanders through a scenic countryside that includes rugged mountain ranges, tranquil bays, rocky islands, and sandy beaches. Bike rental services are available all along the route, so you can rent a bike in one town and drop off in another when you finish your ride. Add The Great Western Greenway and other attractions to your Westport trip itinerary using our Westport visit planner.
