On your bike.
If you’re keen to check out the new Cork to Passage West Greenway but haven’t gotten around to buying a new bike just yet, then fear not, because the folks at the Marina Market have just the solution.
The latest leg of the Lee to Sea greenway officially opened to the public to much fanfare earlier this month. It’s a safe, accessible, and enjoyable way to walk, jog and cycle the scenic route linking coastal neighbourhoods with the bustling city, peaceful countryside and tourist hotspots.
The entire route follows the river into Cork’s lively city centre and along its historic quays, circling the western bank of Cork’s enormous natural harbour, and finishes at the spectacular Passage West coastline.
Now, you can grab a bike every weekend from Midleton Greenway, who have set up shop in a new location at the Marina Market, to enjoy the new amenity.
“Take a look at the beautiful Greenway you ride through when you hire a bike from @midletongreenway” said the Marina Market folks on Instagram.

You can hire electric bikes from the rental shop at €45 per day or choose from a range of adult and youth hybrid bikes – perfect for exploring The Marina, Blackrock Pier and the Cork City to Passage West Greenway- for just €25 a day.
For those who will be carting around smallies who’ve yet to find their cycling legs, there are also child chariot trailers and child seats available to rent.
