This unique trail full of history, beauty and character in the heart of Ireland's Mid-West Region, is ideal for walking, cycling and hiking.

COVID-19: The Limerick Greenway is open for use and the public are advised to practice physical distancing and to follow any other guidance as outlined by the government and health experts. 

As part of our €5million upgrading works to the Limerick Greenway, Limerick City and County Council is undertaking an extensive programme of resurfacing works and a number of sections of the Greenway have been temporarily closed to facilitate these works. Click here for more information. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Ireland's rolling green landscape, much of it untouched by development, makes it an ideal location for walking, cycling or hiking for the enthusiast and casual walkers, cyclers' or hikers alike.

The Limerick Greenway is a 40km walking and cycling off-road route running along the old railway line connecting the towns of Rathkeale, Newcastle West and Abbeyfeale.
