Westport has recently been awarded the coveted title of Ireland’s FIRST cycle-friendly destination.
The 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.
Cycle Friendly Accommodation
Westport hotels not only have a bed for your head but also a bed for your bikes! Their new cycle-friendly facilities include; secure covered overnight bike storage with CCTV for guaranteed peace of mind, bike maintenance stand and tools, emergency repair kits, laundry facilities, and bike hire facilities offering a wide range of road and electric bikes. Most hotels also offer a shuttle bus service to pick up and drop off points along the Great Western Greenway. Hotels partaking in the Cycle Friendly initiative include The Castlecourt Hotel, Westport Plaza, Westport Coast, The Westport Woods, Knockranny House Hotel, Hotel Westport and The Clew Bay Hotel.
