Dublin to Maynooth 26 km
Project Stage: Design
The section between Dublin City and Maynooth consists of a series of smaller projects which are currently at various stages of development under the general aegis of the NTA (National Transport Agency) and will also provide a commuter element as well as being enjoyed by other cyclists, tourists and walkers from the local communities.
The length of the route is approximately 26km. A 2km section between Ashtown and Castleknock (see photos below) and a 0.3km section on Sheriff Street opened to the public in 2014.
The planning process for the section between Sheriff Street and Ashtown is ongoing. Drawings relating to this stretch can be viewed here.
