Walking and Hiking Breaks in Mayo

GN Mulranny Park Hotel

West Mayo is one of Ireland’s most spectacular and beautiful walking destinations.

Mulranny Park Hotel is the only hotel located directly on the Great Western Greenway walking and cycling trail, voted in the top 3 cycle trails worldwide, by the New York Times.

The Great Western Greenway is a greenway rail trail in County Mayo, Ireland. It is 42 kilometres long and begins in Westport and ends in Achill, passing through the towns of Newport and Mulranny as it runs along the coast of Clew Bay. It is an off-road trail intended for use by cyclists and walkers.

Mayo offers not only wild mountain scenery but also dramatic coastal walks and seascapes. The vast Nephin Mountain Range and iconic seascape of Clew Bay, with its drowned drumlin islands, provide spectacular views and ever-changing hues.

Mayo is a county of great geographical contrasts, offering walkers a quality of terrain that few places can compete with.

The landscape here has many stories to tell. These walking trails are suitable for walkers of all ages. They pass through forests, along rivers, beaches, through farmland, bogland and over small hills, and are rarely far from a road. Most of the trails have their own map/guide.
