The Comber Greenway is a 7mile traffic free walking and cycling section running from Belfast to Comber along the old railway line which closed in 1950.

It begins at Dee Street in East Belfast close to the Harland and Wolf shipyard. From the Holywood Arches to the Comber Road , Dundonald the Greenway provides a tranquil green corridor through East Belfast with points of interest along the way including the CS Lewis Statue , views of Harland and Wolf Cranes, Parliament Buildings at Stormont and the Belfast Hills.

At the Comber Road , Dundonald the route diverts briefly from the old railway line along a section of the riverside path to Millmount Road before continuing to Comber through a rural landscape, passing the Billy Neil (MBE) Centre for Soccer Excellence with views of adjacent farmland and Scrabo Tower. Cyclists can cross the River Enler and farm lanes using a number of reinstated bridges before arriving at the Old Belfast Road, Comber. This route links to other cycle routes i.e. Upper Newtownards Road to Sydenham bypass, Belfast City centre to Lisburn or Newtownabbey.
