Hotels Near the Old Rail Trail

The Old Rail Trail is a rural cycling route that goes through the heart of the Irish midlands connecting the lively town of Athlone with the market town of Mullingar and passing through Moate. This cycling route is 40km along a converted railway and passes through farmland away from the hustle and bustle of the towns in the area. The Old Rail Trail is not just about cycling as you can hop on and off the trail and explore the villages and attractions nearby as you make your way through the cycling route.

‘Lots to do at this Beautifully Located Hotel’

“Beautiful location and lots to do at this hotel - you can go for a cruise on the river and there are some nice walks and cycle in the area. Also if u enjoy a round of golf it's all here. Food here was really delicious and wasn't overpriced.”
