Hired bikes from Clew Bay Bicycle Hire. They made the whole experience so enjoyable with their helpful planning and extremely efficent service. The Greenway is beautiful with some dramatic scenery. An incredible amenity for solo travel also for families. It's so safe. Enjoyed every minute.

Absolutely fantastic facility, very much a must do. Really lovely way to see the beautiful countryside. However some of the hills are extremely steep, a moderate level of fitness is needed!!!

Even though the sun wasn't shining had a super fun day. Cycled with Greenway Bikes Newport from Achill to Newport stopping off in Mulranny for lunch. Very competitive family, racing each other to finish in a beautiful safe environment. Good value for money.

Wouldn't think you'd have much trouble to be honest. Tarmac for a good chunk of the route. We went from Achill to Westport.
