Great Western Greenway
PLEASE NOTE works are currently taking place on the section of this trail around Westport. As these works will affect different parts of this trail at different times please follow any re-route signs that are in place. Works are expected to be completed by year's end.
The Great Western Greenway takes walkers and cyclists along the line of the old railway between Westport and Achill Island. It passes through the picturesque villages of Newport and Mallaranny and there are spectacular views from just about every section of the trail, which include the surrounding mountains (Croagh Patrick amongst them), as well as Clew Bay and its many islands.
