A little bird ot the old Tinternet and T'web informed me that a new Greenway had partly opened from Fenit to Spa in County Kerry less than a fortnight ago.
Regular readers will remember I have featured Kerry Cricket Club at Spa and Fenit before. It's on the other side of Tralee Bay across from Camp, Castlegregory and the road to the Conor Pass and on to Dingle.
We found the newly tarmaced Greenway just outside of Spa and wifey dropped me off and carried on to Fenit for nosebag for us both.
The Greenway is the repurposed railway line from Fenit to Tralee. It's tarmaced and already very well used by walkers and cyclists of all ages. They haven't even got round to putting any signs yet.
For me the best thing I like about Greenways is there are no big hills to climb. The sea views are spectacular and here are some photos for your perusal:
An old boarded up and abandoned station building, It would make a great bunk house or cafe or bar?🤔
Great photos of the walk Dave. Looks a bit different to the normal bogs and moorland I associate with your walks. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
That bike was far too big for the little man in the fifth picture.ReplyDelete
Perhaps it's for Leprechaun cyclists YP?Delete
Wow. How beautiful! And you are right...something grand could happen with that boarded up building.ReplyDelete
Thanks Rachel. Rural Ireland is very beautiful.ReplyDelete
Those old railway buildings could be brought back to life Debby. There is also the potential for campsites in the adjoining fields.ReplyDelete
You have some lovely walkways. Wonderful photos of your beloved part of IrelandReplyDelete
It's a perfect repurpose for decommissioned railways. One near where lived in UK had been a double line and was repurposed as a dedicated bus route along with the cycling and walking. It's a brilliant bus route right through the heart of suburbia with no traffic jams (and a damned fine cycle route too).ReplyDelete
We do Linda. Kerry is called the Kingdom and it's clear to see why. I love the place.ReplyDelete
Sounds very good Tigger. A safe place for kids and adults to cycle or walk and respect for the people who made the railways.ReplyDelete
