Cycling on the Great Southern Trail


The Great Southern Trail (GST) is a unique 96km (60 miles) stretch of countryside in West Limerick/North Kerry. It is the route taken by the Limerick - Tralee/Fenit railway line, which opened in stages between 1867 and 1887. Most of the route closed between 1975 and 1978 but now 40km has been re-opened suitable for off road walking and cycling between Rathkeale and Abbeyfeale. Recently the trail has also been developed to include the historic railway tunnel in Barnagh, Co. Limerick.
