Family friendly cycling in Offaly and its surrounds - Grand Canal Greenway

In the fourth of our daily features on family friendly cycling in Offaly and its surrounds, we are highlighting the new Grand Canal Greenway.

The Grand Canal Greenway is a purpose built off-road shared pedestrian and cycleway trail, along the Grand Canal. Currently being developed, 35.5km of the route is complete from Daingean to Lough Boora Discovery Park; while a further 13km is complete from Ballycommon to Kilbeggan. Generally flat with a smooth surface and some gentle slopes, this trail is ideal for family groups of all ages, and all types of bikes. Check out for more information on cycling routes in Offaly

So why not strap on the bikes, pack the helmets and see where your bike takes you this Bike Week (12 – 18th September 2021)
