We hired bikes from Clew Bay Bike Hire. They have a shuttle bus from Westport, Newport, Mulranny and Achill. Great for the undecided or not sure of fitness. Lovey places to stop for coffee cake or snacks. A great way to experience our beautiful countryside

Fantastic adventure and the greenway is a safe way in which to travel. Only downside was the signage to find the greenway from Westport- it took quite a while to get our bearings. Some signage as to where Newport is on the route would be...More

I was initially skeptical about the greenway, really not knowing anything about it but it is just delightful. We biked from Achill to Westport along 28.5 miles of mostly but not entirely, flat land. We passed cows and sheep, lots of open fields, and lakes...More

We had our bikes with us so off we went. It about 12kms each way. Nice cycle enough of a slope at times to allow for free wheeling. We had carriage for the smallies. Breath taking views. The most friendliest people so much laughter.

A great cycle. 42km from Westport to Achill Sound. A good day for cycling, it being not too warm. Generally quite flat except for 2-3 km between Newport and Mulrany. Plenty of toilet facilities on the trail. Extremely well maintained.

We cycled from Achill to Newport in 28 degree weather! Stunning scenery, the photos definitely don't do it justice. Largely gentle inclines with a few short steeper sections between Mulranny and Newport. Only in two areas did we see some people get off their bikes...More

This is wonderful example of how to adapt an old railway line to provide a great and safe facility for walking and especially cycling.

Firstly great idea to stay in Achill, it’s amazing! If you leave from Westport there are several safe car parks in the town that you can use. There are also spaces beside Clew bay bike hire if you intend on renting a bike.
