Walking the walk at Lough Lannagh – walking and cycling in Castlebar and Mayo

Right over here on the Atlantic ocean in Castlebar, we’re truly blessed with magnificent scenery and a really, engaging natural environment. In fact, right throughout mayo, you can take in sights and sounds that you just wouldn’t see anywhere else. And the best way to do that is get out walking or jump up on the bike. Beautiful scenery and a little exercise too – not a bad combination.

The Great Western Greenway is the longest off-road walking and cycling track in Ireland. It’s 42k long and follows the route of the renowned Westport to Achill railway which closed in 1937. You can start at several points along the way and the trail is designed with spectacular scenery and relaxation in mind.

There are as many wonderful walks right around our county. Mayo’s unspoilt clean countryside, varying landscapes, unique scenery and rich heritage and folklore mark it as an ideal walking destination.  Whether you are an old hand or a compete novice, it can offer most types of walks including mountain and hill walks, coastal and island walks, and rural and urban walks.  You’ll marvel at the variety of walks on offer which will combine to give you an unrivalled and unforgettable experience.

And we can’t forget our very own local festival. Join us and many more for the 47th Castlebar Four Day International Walking Festival. In fact we have been the walker base camp and village since we opened.  Since 1967 the event has attracted walkers from every corner of the world. This is an ideal opportunity to walk and talk, to discover and share the bogs, rivers, mountains and unspoilt beauty of the West of Ireland with enthusiastic walkers from everywhere.

Register for the Castlebar Walking Festival Now!

Cycling is also a great way to see the beautiful Mayo countryside. The Junior Tour of Ireland came to us over the last couple of years. Check out the Sky team at this years Tour de France, they are past guests at Lough Lannagh, and, past competitors and winners of the Junior Tour. So if you’re competing, training or coming along for the spectacle and support of competitive cycling, stay with us at Lough Lannagh. Cycling is an event that’s close to our hearts.

Walking and cycling trails abound all over our proud county. And we’re delighted to say we’re in the ideal location to take advantage. If you’re a walker or cyclist, we’ll fill you in as to what’s going on, where the best trails are and more. We can even provide packed lunches from our Greenway Café which will set you for the day.
