Westport has recently been awarded the coveted title of Ireland’s FIRST cycle-friendly destination.

The Cycle Friendly Initiative, which captures the EuroVelo Route and the Wild Atlantic Way includes “local knowledge” routes such as the Westport Greenway, as well as the Clew Bay Loop, pilgrim routes and lake routes. Visiting cyclists will be able to plan their trips with downloadable maps that have details on route distances and elevations.

From the Great Western Greenway to cycling routes around the Clew Bay area, there is so much beautiful scenery to be taken in and admired, and what better way to do it than on the saddle!

There are a number of bike hire shops in numerous locations around the Clew Bay area for anyone visiting Westport and looking for things to do, or for locals who are looking for a day out exploring.
