The Limerick Greenway
Built along the former Limerick to Tralee railway line, Limerick Greenway is a redeveloped off-road cycling and walking route that can be accessed through any one of the six entry points.
Limerick Greenway weaves through West Limerick’s traditional agricultural landscape, starting in Rathkeale, on through Ardagh, Newcastle West, Barnagh, Templeglantine and finishing in Abbeyfeale, with a perfect view of the Allaghaun River.
Designed with mobility in mind, the Greenway path links major towns with some of the country’s most historical attractions and is safe and suitable for all visitors – perfect for family staycations, weekends away, or a day trip to Limerick.
Visit some of the most popular attractions in Limerick along the Greenway path – by passing through a Victorian-era railway tunnel, visiting several ancient castles and abbeys, basking in the solitude of a native forest and meeting the people that make Limerick unique.
You can start the full route at Rathkeale or Abbeyfeale at the Limerick-Kerry border, or you can choose to join in at any of the entry points located along the way. Plan your route on Limerick Greenway by using the map below.
Whether you’re a Limerick native, or keeping an eye out for your next staycation, however you choose to explore Limerick Greenway, there will be a warm welcome from the locals along the way.
