Old Rail Trail

Mullingar to Athlone Greenway

This is a ‘must’ cycle for anyone who likes getting out on their bike. Start in Mullingar and follow the path as it snakes along the canal to the head of the Greenway. For the next 40km you’re in biking heaven. But don’t let the distance scare you, hop off and visit Dún na Sí Amenity & Heritage Park along the way. You’ll meet everyone on the route from passionate enthusiasts to those out for the fresh air. This is a dedicated cycle path that follows the old rail track under arched bridges, through a tunnel and past beautiful countryside all the way to Athlone.

With lots of entry and exit points, you can hop on and off to explore the villages and attractions along the way. Whether for a leisurely 8km cycle from Athlone to Moate or the ambitious 40km, check out the brochure, view the map or share the infographic with your cycling friends and plan your day on the Greenway.
