We are truly blessed to have this amenity right on our doorstep
Fernwood is at the beginning of the Connemara Greenway.
The Connemara Greenway is the reopening of the disused railway line that once linked Clifden to Galway City and beyond. This fantastic resource, in the process of being upgraded, will now be a cycle track and walkway that will lead you into the true depths of Connemara's wilderness, areas that have been previously inaccessible to the general public.
There is currently an 8km section open from Fernwood and in the next 12 months we hope to see a link up with the 10km already open around Ballynahinch Castle. So get on your bike or don your best walking shoes, pack a picnic and head out for a day of exploration like no other. Be inspired and immerse yourself in the landscape made infamous by Paul Henry and so many other great artists and writers through the years.
We have teamed up with Jonathan and Amanda at the Clifden Bike Shop who have a wide range of bicycles to hire for all ages and abilities. Discounts and special offers are available for Fernwood guests.
