Limerick Greenway

Visit the Limerick Greenway, a 40km path through our local countryside, linking West Limericks landscape, filled with bustling towns and villages, and some of the country’s most historic sites.

Built along the former Limerick to Kerry rail line, it was first envisaged 30 years ago when an idea emerged to build a Great Southern trail along the route. 

There is access and stop off points at the main towns of Rathkeale, Newcastle West, Abbeyfeale and Templeglanton, as well as access to historic sites like Desmond Castle and Ardagh, which is the home of the famous Ardagh Chalice.

The Greenway is perfect for day-trippers, cyclists, runners, and walkers with easy access to the towns along the way, offering delicious food and quality accommodation. 

 Greenway Sections

The Limerick Greenway weaves through West Limerick’s traditional agricultural landscape, linking the major towns of Rathkeale, Newcastle West, and Abbeyfeale. The Greenway surface was designed with mobility in mind and is safe and suitable for all. You can start the full route at Rathkeale or Abbeyfeale on the Limerick-Kerry border, and join at any of the entry points located at key stops along the Greenway.
