Westport Cycle Hub

The West Mayo Cycle Network, with the town of Westport as its hub offers three routes varying in distance from 8km to 24km with numerous shorter alternatives. Each cycle offers breath taking views off the west coast off Mayo. Numerous picnic stops are dotted along the route as well as a number of local pubic houses and restaurants.

Westport is a unique town because of its layout and location.   Nestling safe at the foot of towering Croagh Patrick, overlooking Clew Bay and its enchanting islands, the town weaves its spell around everyone it meets.
