Cycled from Newport to Mulranny with a group of friends. The bus back is a great service especially for inexperienced cyclists like myself!!! Lovely stops on the way for food and coffee... it was a clear day when we done the cycle and the views were beautiful!!! Definitely worth doing if around the area

Great to walk or cycle. No traffic, specifically for bikes or walkers. Portaloo's along the route. So lucky to have this facility near by.

Totally enjoyed this cycle... our daughter is 10 and pretty active. The wind was tough for the first part from Achill to Mulranny but it shelters in places after that.

Did this with my 70 year old mother in November, Achill to Westport. Had a great day, incredible views. Chilly day would be better in summer when you could jump in for a swim or picnic as you go. Very flat, manageable for all cyclists.

Anytime great walk....but on a sunny day from Clue bay to Westport town takes some beating. Will go back often.

The greenway is quite in winter so if you get a good day be ready to go in the morning on the shuttle bus to Achill and cycle to Westport. This is a great way to see the West. The highlight is the view of clew bay from Mulranny.
