About Limerick Greenway

Limerick Greenway offers an authentic and accessible experience of rural Ireland for everyone to enjoy along the old Limerick to Kerry railway line.

Visit Limerick and explore 40km of the Treaty County’s off-road walking and cycling route.

The Greenway path seamlessly links the West Limerick landscape with the bustling towns and villages of Rathkeale, Newcastle West and Abbeyfeale, offering access to some of the most culturally rich attractions in Limerick – including the cast iron Ferguson’s Viaduct, the 115-metre long Barnagh Tunnel, and the luscious gardens of Castle Demesne Park. 

You can experience Limerick Greenway in one visit or explore in shorter stages; perfect for day trips, weekend wanderers, solo adventurers or simply those looking for fun family activities to do in Limerick.  

The Greenway path can be accessed through several entry points starting in Rathkeale, on through Ardagh, Newcastle West, Barnagh, Templeglantine and finishing in Abbeyfeale, with a perfect view of the Allaghaun River.
