Great outdoor activity!, All ages

Greenway day out

Admission free

Combine a visit to the National Museum of Ireland - Country Life with a scenic Greenway cycle for a great day out for all of the family.

The Castlebar to Turlough Greenway means Museum visitors can start their day with a cycle from Lough Lannagh, Castlebar, along a 10km, mainly off-road riverside route, all the way to the National Museum of Ireland - Country Life.

The Greenway follows the course of the Castlebar River and passes through peaceful countryside and woodland sections, with lots of interesting sites along the way. The route finishes in the spectacular grounds of Turlough Park, home to the only National Museum of Ireland site outside Dublin.

Designed for shared use by leisure walkers, joggers and cyclists, the trail is classed as easy to moderate. The route is waymarked using fingerpost signage with blue text and symbols on a white background.

Allow one hour to cycle (or two hours walking) from Castlebar to the Museum and 1.5 hours to see Ireland's National Folklife Collection.
