as soon as you have found where to start i is very easy to follow. the way is almost flat, sp you can do it even if you are not extremely fit. partly parallel to the roads but all together a nice trip.

The Greenway is a lovey place to have a relaxed bicycle ride and experience the country side with no cars.

Beautiful scenery and quaint little towns on route. Westport to Mulranny is the easiest part. Mulranny to Newport is nice but has a long stretch which gets tough for kids, Newport to Achill is great, lovely breeze, bit of a trek but well worth it....More

A very pleasant and beautiful walk. We walked from Westport to Clew Bay and back and found it delightful with great views and varied vegetation. Just be careful of the dog poop.

It's a good two hour cycle. You have many opportunities to break up the journey which you should plan on doing. My I suggest Mulranny Park Hotel, Navin's of Tiernaur, the Blue Bicycle in Newport. Enjoy your trip!

Hi,its a brilliant idea. Be prepared for rain, as someone said before. The weather should be just warm enough to cycle. Hope the weather is gonna be good for you!
