Thanks for joining us here with your question!
It sounds like a lovely idea to cycle across the middle of the country from Galway to Dublin, a journey of approximately 218km ( 135 miles). 🚴
Most of the route from Galway to Athlone would be on our normal Regional roads, Google has a cycle route
suggestion that you may wish to look at. Once in Athlone there is the Old Rail Trail Greenway
that takes you 40 km towards Mullingar, where you will then find the Royal Canal Way
towards Dublin.All Trails
has an app and website to look for information on these trails as well and may be handy to use while here.
Along the route you will need to find accommodation. There is a handy accommodation page on our website, just scroll down to the where do you want to stay
section and use the filters to refine your search. We have pre-selected B&B to get you started just add a location or change the type to suit your needs.
Have you done long distance cycle trips before? How long will you be here on this adventure?
