Westport Way Cycling Tour
Westport Way Tour
The Westport Way tour starts in Galway and includes 2 nights in the pleasant town of Westport, known as the adventure capital of Ireland. Westport was also one of the first towns in Ireland to develop its own purpose build cycling Greenway. Constructed on the remains of an abandoned railway line, the greenway extends from the town of Westport to Achill island some 42km to the west. This makes it an ideal area to explore on a cycling holiday.
After Westport, the cycling goes south along the Atlantic coast to Louisburgh, Delphi and Leenane. The scenery is simply breathtaking with beautiful valleys, lakes, windy hills and forests, which I am sure you will treasure for a long time to come.
Continue along the Atlantic coast to the vibrant town of Clifden.
