Greenways in Ireland

Greenways Ireland was set up to promote greenways all over Ireland. We are a private company whos aim it is to help both businesses and users of greenways get them most out of these fabulous amenities.

The Greenways Ireland website will become the number one guide for visitors from Ireland and abroad wanting to explore Irelands Greenways.

As the number of Greenways in Ireland is growing we will document all Greenways, current greenways and greenways of the future.

What is a Greenway?

Greenways are trails built to be used exclusively by cyclists, pedestrians and other non motorised transport. They are generally traffic-free routes. With no traffic, the routes are generally safer and can be enjoyed by most members of society.

Greenways have become very popular on old disused railway lines. Examples of Greenways that have repurposed old railway lines are

  • Waterford Greenway
  • Great Western Greenway
  • Great Southern Trail
  • Old Rail Trail

Greenways are also been built along river and canal towpaths. Both the Royal Canal Greenway and the Suir Blueway are built along old towpaths.
