Maynooth is a picturesque and bustling university town in north County Kildare, just 24km west of Central Dublin. Packed with great places to eat, shop and stay, Maynooth is the ideal location to begin your Royal Canal Greenway adventure. The town is also serviced by the Dublin to Sligo rail line which makes it a great starting point for those staying in Dublin looking to escape the city for an afternoon.
Standing sternly at the entrance to Maynooth University is the remains of the once-great castle.
