Rented bikes and got shuttle bus from Westport to Achill and cycled back. Great route with about 80% of it on a dedicated bike lane. Will be doing this again, maybe both ways next time!

We cycled from Mulranny to Newport in glorious sunshine at the end of July. The scenery, greenery and atmosphere is amazing. It's a real treat & I hope many more Greenways open across the country for safe cycling. It's a fantastic facility !

Eleven of us rode from Mullrany to Newport in the pouring rain! (18k). We had intended to carry on to westport but just too wet! Couldn't have been wetter if someone was throwing buckets of water at us!! But what a great day, very well signposted and safe with a very small number of road crossings. We hired bikes from clew bay bike hire, with four bases and shuttle buses running around all day you can do as much or little as you like. Highly recommended for all ages, enjoy.

Great idea. So safe and wonderful views of Clew Bay! More should be built in different parts of Ireland.

It is an unusual pleasure in Ireland to be able to cycle through beautiful scenery largely free of the worry of motor traffic. The Greenway is wonderful. A relatively gentle ride it gives wonderful views of Clew Bay and the approach to Achill. Even a morning's rain did not spoil the experience for me. The view of Bellacragher Bay just after the Mulranny Park is marvellous and alone is worth the trip. I took my own bike but there are plenty of rentals available along the way including of kids' bikes. Now for the conversion of the old Galway to Clifden railway to a cycle path.
