Irelands Cycling Greenways

There are a number of traffic-free Cycle trails across the  country called Greenways. These traffic free routes are ideal for families and  young  cyclists. Mostly consisting of fine gravel or tarmac. A number of them run parallel with the canals or old rail trails so tend to be very flat. The  following are a list of the longer Greenways.

Royal Canal - The Royal Canal is a 144km  trail running from Dublin City to Clondra in Co Longford. This 200 year old route takes in some of Irelands hidden gems and is a true snap from the past. Please check one of our tours that take in part of the canal in county Longford. - Midlands Historical Bicycle Trail

The Great Western Greenway - This 45km route follows part of the famous wide Atlantic way route between Westport and Achill Island on an old rail trail.
