Weaving its way through West Limerick’s traditional agricultural landscape, Limerick Greenway can be accessed from the towns and villages of Ardagh, Rathkeale, Newcastle West, Barnagh, Templeglantine and Abbeyfeale, with a wealth of shops, restaurants, cafes, public amenities, and accommodation options.
Perfect for day-trippers or short breaks, you can experience the Limerick Greenway in one visit or explore in shorter stages. Whichever you choose, there will be a genuine welcome from the towns along the way, offering delicious food, fun activities and quality accommodation.
For a day trip, we recommend picking one of the major towns of Rathkeale, Newcastle West, and Abbeyfeale and exploring the countryside around it by bike or foot on the safely enclosed and newly resurfaced Greenway paths. Each of the towns has shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs, and places to stay, as well as public parks and children’s playgrounds.
In contrast to the buzz of Limerick City, County Limerick is a place of rural charm and great beauty. Get to grips with Ireland’s third largest city, before exploring the greater county, with its lush green countryside, adventure trails and unrivalled sporting legacy, filled with small towns, quirky retail and fascinating museums.
