cycling onGrand Canal Greenway

Cycling along the Grand Canal in Kildare is a mix of urban and rural experiences. Starting from our base in the picturesque inland harbour village of Sallins you can cycle down to the Cliff at Lyons, up to Robertstown or over to the market town of Naas.

All routes travel through lush green countryside, past 240 year old bridges and locks with occasional barges cruising by.

Surfaces vary with some sections tarmacked, some gravel and some grass track. From spring 2023 the section from Cliff at Lyons to Sallins will be fully upgraded to a hard surface cycle track.
