Republic of Ireland

Cycling is a popular activity in Ireland and there is a developing traffic-free cycling route network. There are a number of popular ‘greenways’ in different parts of the country including the Great Western Greenway, the Great Southern Greenway, the Old Rail Trail, the Waterford Greenway and the Royal Canal Greenway. Each of these is at least 40km in length providing a traffic-free cycling experience and they are all sections of either EuroVelo 1 - Atlantic Coast Route or EuroVelo 2 - Capitals Route in Ireland. There are also many sign-posted routes on quiet roads spread throughout the country, some of which start in designated Cycle Hub Towns. All of the greenways and on-road signposted cycling routes can be found at www.sportireland.ie/outdoors/find-your-trails.
