Westmeath Way

Stretching some 33 kilometres (21 miles) in length from Kilbeggan to Mullingar, the Westmeath Way  provides a wonderful walking experience that includes scenic riverside meadows, rich pastureland, lake views, bog road sections, serene woodland areas, and quiet canal towpath sections. Truly a rich variety of walking terrain to give a true flavour and experience of the Westmeath Countryside.

The Westmeath Way is managed by the Westmeath Way Trail Management  Group, led by Westmeath County Council - Membership of the Management Group includes representatives from Westmeath County Council, Coillte, Westmeath Community Development Limited (WCDL), Failte Ireland and the IFA.

One of the primary function of the Management Group is to agree and oversee the maintenance works required to be undertaken by staff under the Rural Social Scheme operated by Westmeath Community Development Limited and by staff of the Kilbeggan and Mullingar Areas of Westmeath County Council.
