Achill Cycle Hub — Loop 3



Achill Cycle Hub is located on Achill Island at the western end of the Great Western Greenway. There are three on road loops available ranging from 12km to 44km. Sometimes Achill can be wild and windy but is always stunningly beautiful with blue flag beaches, cliffs, and large tracts of blanket bog sweeping over the island’s peaks.

This loop is a wonderful way to discover the island’s interior. The loop featured here makes for a pleasant short cycle with gentle gradients around Keel. Cyclists can detour to visit the ‘deserted village’ and a megalithic tomb. Excellent views down to the Atlantic and the main beach, An Trá Mhór.  

In association with Sport Ireland.
