Limerick Greenway

The Greenway is a 40km path through the local countryside, and offers an authentic experience of rural Ireland for cyclists, runners and walkers. Following the old Limerick to Kerry railway line, the Greenway seamlessly links the West Limerick landscape with bustling towns and villages and some of the country’s most historic sites. Experience the Limerick Greenway in one visit or explore in shorter stages, perfect for day-trippers. Whichever you choose, there will be a genuine welcome from the towns along the way, offering delicious food and quality accommodation. Weaving its way through West Limerick’s traditional agricultural landscape, Limerick Greenway can be accessed from the towns and villages of Ardagh, Rathkeale, Newcastle West, Barnagh, Templeglantine and Abbeyfeale, with a wealth of shops, restaurants, cafes, public amenities, and accommodation options. Visit Ardagh. See Rerasta Fort where the Ardagh Chalice was discovered in 1868 by Jim Quin and Paddy Flanagan. Visit Ballylin Hill Fort, the second largest hill fort in Ireland covering 52 acres, with a panoramic view. For more information on the Great Southern Limerick Greenway click on
