Good news coming out of Limerick last week as the Limerick Greenway opened. Led by the Limerick City and County Council, it is one of the biggest outdoor and most transformative tourism projects ever undertaken in Limerick. Carving a 40km path through the local countryside along a disused railway line, the Greenway offers an authentic experience of rural Ireland for cyclists, runners and walkers.
Passing through three major villages in Rathkeale, Newcastle West and Abbeyfeale as well as smaller towns on the way, there will restaurants and places of interest to visit on your journey.
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.
