Definitely great trail for bikers. Not convinced having walked its entire length its great for hiking.

Need to think about places to stop and eat drink etc as these are v few on the trail outside of the towns. So Westport or Achill load up - mulranney and newport provide limited opportunities at present - otherwise enjoy the views even in the rain.

The early part of the cycle from Westport to Newport had a lot of roads to cross over - just to be aware of this in case you are cycling with young children.

Weather was lovely yesterday and enjoyed a walk along some of the greenway and then drove on th Achill and saw how fabulous the greenway is for cyclists and walkers alike with some lovely views.

I was a bit anxious about heading off on "the bike" as it was several years since I sat on one. The cycle from Newport to Mullany and back was not as strenuous as I anticipated. The main thing is not to rush and hop on and off the bike at regular intervals to take in the stunning sea and mountain landscape.
I would recommend the greenway for all age groups.

Great walk. 12.56km there in 2hours. Had soup and sandwich in Newport and walked back. Just over 25km in total and took exactly 4hrs.

The walk is largely alongside the main road but at one stage it veers off and goes through and wonderfully scenic area.

Highly recommended.
