A lesser known part of Ireland but still offering great scenery. The route incorporates the fantastic Greenway cycle that takes us from Achill Island all the way to Westport.

Our Safari starts and finishes in the colourful town of Westport. We set off on our cycle around Lough Conn where fisherman cast off and patiently wait for the days catch. We head to the coast and the Ceide Fields. A unique archeological site of world importance where the remains of stone filled walls, houses and megalithic tombs are preserved beneath a blanket of peat over several square miles. As a field structure of over five and a half millennia, it is the oldest known field system in the world.We continue our journey cycling along the Atlantic Coast to Ireland's largest island Achill, where we are basing ourselves for two days. Achill is unspoilt by the havoc of the modern day and many of its beaches have been awarded Blue Flag status by the European Union. Dramatic views of towering cliffs, majestic mountains and open moorland - nature at is most beautiful, all immortalized by the paintings of Paul Henry.

Our final days cycle takes us all the way from Achill to Westport on a dedicated cycle / walking path, the famous Great Western Greenway! A fantastic way to finish up this great tour.
