National Galway to Dublin Cycleway
Public Information Leaflet
A greenway is an off-road route designed for cyclists and pedestrians. In 2012 the NRA was directed by the Department of Transport to progress the design of a national greenway from Galway to Dublin. This will be an important national tourism asset, attracting walkers and cyclists from all over Ireland, Europe and beyond. It will also provide recreational opportunities for local communities along the route.
Westmeath County Council in partnership with Roscommon County Council, Galway County Council and Galway City Council have engaged Roughan & O'Donovan - AECOM consulting engineers to carry out the preliminary design and develop the scheme.
A preliminary study for the western sector was made in 2013-14. This identified a preferred corridor linking Galway, Oranmore, Clarinbridge, Craughwell, Loughrea, Kilreekil, Aughrim, Ballinasloe and Athlone. Between the towns and villages this is a 'greenfield' or cross-country route, avoiding existing roads.
