Great Western Greenway — Castlebar to Turlough



Shared by cyclists and walkers, this greenway provides a tranquil journey through riverside scenery and native woodlands. Largely following the placid Castlebar River, this pleasant linear route connects the county town of Castlebar to the National Museum of Ireland: Country Life in pictorial Turlough Park.

The greenway follows a surfaced and forest track through open countryside, quiet by-roads, and native woodland before reaching the Turlough Park demesne. A mainly flat route, there is one steep hill and a number of quaint bridges. In both Castlebar and Turlough you’ll find places to stop and enjoy a cup of coffee after cycling this charming riverside trail. 

In association with Sport Ireland.
