Great Western Greenway

The world-class Great Western Greenway is a 42km traffic-free cycling and walking facility which primarily follows the line of the famous Westport to Achill Island Railway, which opened in 1937.

Its development has been made possible by agreement of local landowners who have allowed permissive access to users to pass through their lands.

The Westport - Achill railway was one of the so-called 'Balfour Lines' called after Arthur J Balfour.
