Limerick Greenway

For a destination run and a good option to get rack up some miles in the scenic countryside, we recommend choosing a section of the Limerick Greenway. Built along the former Limerick to Tralee railway line, the multi-use path starts a 1/2 hour drive west of Limerick in Rathkeale, and runs for up to 40 km through Ardagh, Newcastle West, Barnagh, Templeglantine and finishing in Abbeyfeale, with nice views of the Allaghaun River. Mix of paved & unpaved. The 10 km from Newcastle West to Barnagh is an incline.

This brochure has excellent information on the Greenway, and a map broken into sections and access points.

  • The 10 km from Newcastle West to Barnagh is an incline
