Cycle the Great Western Greenway, Co. Mayo

Cycle the Great Western Greenway, Co. Mayo


If you’re wondering what all the fuss is about cycling, take this short off-road trip at a leisurely pace along the old railway line from Westport to Achill Island. You’ll pass over and under bridges, meet wandering sheep and enjoy the colours of the Nephin Mountains along the way. The 42km-trail can be done in a day, but we stopped off in Mulranny for a night. There, what seems like an ordinary roadside pub, Daly’s, opens up to the most magnificent views across Clew Bay from the back. Leave time to explore Achill Island too – YG

While you’re at it: Don’t miss Westport town with its lively pubs (said to number 52) – there’s a nightly music session at Matt Molloy’s
