Grand Canal Greenway Bike Hire
Sallins, Co. Kildare
Grand Canal Greenway Bike Hire, in Sallins, County Kildare, overlooks the greenway and the Grand Canal, with its colourful canal boats. They provide adult bikes, accessories and hybrid bikes for children aged 9 to 15 years. Experience the countryside and wildlife, passing historic bridges, towns and locks along the way.

Cycling along the Grand Canal in County Kildare is a mix of urban and rural experiences. Starting from the picturesque inland harbour village of Sallins, you can cycle to the Cliff at Lyons, to Robertstown or to the market town of Naas, which dates back to the Middle Ages. The Cliff at Lyons area was once a collection of historic village houses, a barracks, a forge and mill. There are a number of restaurants, pubs and choices of accommodation along the route.

The Grand Canal Greenway Bike Hire has all you need for an excursion lasting 2, 3 or 4 hours, up to a full day. All routes travel through lush green countryside, past 250 year old bridges and locks, with occasional barges cruising by.

Typical animal species of the canal area include fox, badger, hedgehog, otter, grey heron, mallard, mute swan, and moorhen. Numerous smaller birds inhabit the stretches of hedgerows. You will also see fish, including pike, barracuda, bream, tench, roach and stickleback.

Grand Canal Greenway Bike Hire is committed to protecting and enhancing the pristine habitat of the Grand Canal for future generations.
