Stage 11. Leenane to Westport

This stage is always voted as one of our top 3 stages. If you want to cycle a road with more sheep than cars you have found it. Apart from the quiet roads, the amazing scenery, water falls & stunning lakes, the wildness of this place will take your breath away… (it is the flattest stage for cycling but surrounded by mountains, lakes and the Atlantic).

Coffee & cakes in Louisburgh are always welcome before we take the coast road 17km / 10miles to Westport passing along Clew Bay on our left and Croagh Patrick appearing on our right.

As we approach Croagh Patrick we can see the path leading to the top with the white chapel appearing at the top. With a short spin to Westport we take the beautiful Quay Road into Westport.

Westport is a vibrant town with great restaurants, traditional music bars and a lovely atmosphere.
