Things to see and do

The gateway to the Limerick Greenway

Rathkeale House Hotel is located right at the start of the Limerick Greenway, step out of our front door and within a couple of steps you are on this fantastic 40km off-road walking and cycling route along an old railway line that connects the three market towns of Rathkeale, Newcastle West and Abbeyfeale in West Limerick. Perfect for families and very safe for kids!

Traversing the Greenway is a spectacular journey through time, heritage and nature, giving the visitor the opportunity to learn more about the people and environment of one of Ireland’s hidden jewels, West Limerick. Along this route, close to Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way, you will find Norman castles, abbeys, medieval ruins, old railway stations, a viaduct, the Barnagh Tunnel and breath-taking scenery!

We even offer bicycle rentals so you can explore the Greenway at your leisure. Click here to visit the official Limerick Greenway website for more information.
