Greenan is a quiet hamlet situated half-way between the Wicklow Way at Glenmalure (5km to the north-west) and the small town of Rathdrum (5km to the east). Because the Accommodation Providers in the area are willing to collect guests from the trail, staying in Greenan is a very viable and attractive option for those seeking the tranquillity of the unspoilt country-side.
Those wanting to extend their stay in the area, will enjoy a visit to the nearby Greenan Farm Museum and Maze, a "great fun" experience! Alternatively those well skilled in map and compass navigation could tackle the fantastic horseshoe ridge walk over Fananieran (426m), Croaghanmoira (664m) and Ballinacor (531m) which links Glenmalure to Greenan. This is not a signposted walk however and good navigation is essential.
