GREENWAY and OLD RAIL TRAIL
An easy cycle through Athlone and along a section of the new Dublin to Galway Green-way. This is mostly on level landscape and can be enjoyed by all age groups. Discover the historical sites of Athlone, flora and fauna of the wetland area and also observe the new and old ways of harvesting peat and turf along the route.
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. Visit www.dunnasi.ie to see the special visitor centre which offers a family fun day.
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 and view the map.
Pass under the old 3 arched bridge near Streamstown. Stop in Moate for a bite to eat and then park the bikes for a while to explore the beauty of Dún na Sí Amenity & Heritage Park. When you’ve explored Athlone, there’s a lot more cycling still to be discovered. Use it as a base and spend a day at Lough Boora with it’s many cycle routes or head up to Hodson Bay and get on the South Roscommon trail.
The Old Rail Trail is a rural route through the heart of the Irish midlands connecting the bustling town of Athlone with the market town of Mullingar passing through the town of Moate. The route is 40km along a converted stretch of the former Midlands Great Western Railway and passes through rich fertile farmland away from the hustle of towns.

With sailings every day, it’s the perfect way to get the whole family out on the water.

A brilliant way to spend a morning or an afternoon.
