Great Western Greenway

The World Class Great Western Greenway (Newport – Mulranny) is an 18km traffic free cycling and walking facility in Mayo which primarily follows the line of the famous Newport / Mulranny 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. This route offers gentle gradients and some of the most idyllic scenery in the west of Ireland. The route forms part of the National Cycle Network and it is the longest off road cycling experience in the Country.
