this is great if you have a good day, nice stretch 40km or so start early. I don't think the artisan tour is worth it as you pass so many villages and can stop easily. Lovely views towards the end of the trip.

We are just back from spending a week in Mulranny, a perfect location to make great use of The Greenway! It is the most perfect cycle, for cyclists of all ages and levels. Pack a picnic and get on your bike!

I think the Greenway is a marvellous facility and such initiatives should be encouraged. It was great to see so many families cycling and people who were back on a bike for the first time in a long time. Completely safe and out of danger from traffic.
I just wanted to point out that it is not really that suitable for the more experienced cycling enthusiasts. The gritty surface is not suitable for road bikes, plus all the gates, cross-points and general traffic make it hard to make progress. We cycled from Westport to Achill but made much better progress and found it more enjoyable on the main road for the return journey. They next day we had a fabulous day cycling around Achill. The roads are fairly quiet with good surfaces. Highly recommended that and leave the Greenway to the leisure cyclists.

Great for outdoor activity for families and couples. You can cycle , run, walk. Just do not forget your hat on a sunny day.

Cycled from Achill to Newport. Section from Achill to Mulranny flat with outstanding views. Section from Mulranny to Newport is just as nice.
