Great Western Greenway (Westport to Achill)

This 42km Greenway from Westport to Achill (through Newport and Mulranny) offers a fantastic way to enjoy the Mayo countryside. This walk or cycle gives you the chance to enjoy amazing views of Clew Bay and the track is very well maintained (http://www.greenway.ie/index.html).trail

While we concentrate on walking and hiking at takeahike.ie, cycling is also highly recommended and bikes can be rented from a number of companies such as Clew Bay Bike Hire. The great thing is if you are based in Westport, they will shuttlebus you to Achill and you can cycle from Achill back to Westport (http://www.clewbaybikehire.ie/bikes/bike-packages/).
