Great Western Greenway to Achill Island from Westport - Cycle Route

The most popular Bike route from Westport

Take off from our private car park and head toward the Great Western Greenway to Achill Island from Westport.

This 43.8km route takes in some of the best scenery and stop offs Mayo has to offer.
After just over 12km on this car free cycleway you can decide to stop off in Newport Town, with its famous 7 Arch Bridge and sheltered bay. Here you can pick up a bite to eat or grab a coffee in the local restaurants or pop into Hotel Newport before moving on to the next part of your journey.

After Newport you will head off on an enjoyable 17km spin before arriving in Mulranny. On the way you will roll through the rugged boggy landscape all around you and as you approach Mulranny get perfect views of the coastline on your left hand side from your elevated vantage point.
The seaside village of Mulranny is the perfect place to take a stop off and refuel before you head into An Corrán.

An Corrán is a peninsula that extends out toward Achill Island on the final leg of your journey. It is a Gaeltacht area (designated Irish speaking region)

You’ll be amazed by the scenery as you cycle under bridges along the winding route below the road. This part of the Greenway takes you to a stunning area of County Mayo, where you can admire the vast bogland and the beautiful Knocklettragh Hill, which rises 452 metres to the south. This is a wonderful place to experience the beauty of nature.

You’re almost there – just 6.5 kilometres more and you’ll reach Achill, where you can treat yourself to some delicious food and soak in the views!
