We did this in January so it was very quite. We did not meet any other bikers just a few walkers. The path is so safe and we had great weather which was an added bonus. Would definitely do it again.

Lovely gentle walk. Also good for bike rides. Great nature walk with magnificent views. You can start your walk from a number of locations from Westport to Achill and enjoy moments of quiet contemplation, listen to music through your headphones and pass some time with fellow traveller's.

As the greenway was close to our hotel - Knockranney House Westport - we walked quite a distance. Lovely scenary, very relaxing and met some very nice, interesting
locals. Highly recommended. If you are feeling fit suggest walking as far as
Newport, grabbing a coffee there and taking a taxi back. Enjoy.

Excellent for walking and cycling. Surface ok for road bikes. Intended to cycle to Westport but weather was grim

Gone are the frantic sun holidays, filled with food, booze and hangovers. This is the new reality, stunning scenery, getting back to the real world, walking, biking, it's great, you're off road, so no traffic worries. Walk for free or hire a bike for only €15 a day. We loved our week away from the madness of busy working lives. ....And guess what still time for food and a few drinks at the end of the day. This greenway is fantastic. Give it a try..
