Westport Slí - 2.5km
The Westport Slí na Sláinte is a 2.5km linear route which links Westport’s two urban centres. The two centres comprise of:
The Historic Town Core, which is the main commercial centre, and contains the main civic spaces of the Octagon, the Clock and the canalised Carrowbeg river.
The Quay Area, was once a thriving commercial port and has enjoyed recent rejuvenation, as a major tourism base. Historically the two centres have been linked by the railway line which allowed goods to be transported from the Quay to the town’s railway station and beyond.
The disused railway line, now known as the Westport Greenway offers users traffic free walking and cycling and a gentle gradient not greater than 1.6% as well as impressive vista of Croagh Patrick and Clew Bay. The route can be used in both directions and can be accessed from the Quay or from the old cattle pass located at Altamont Street near the town centre.
