About Cloondara

​​The little tranquil harbour village of Cloondara is another option for starting your journey. A wonderful place with the magnificent cut-stone Richmond Harbour which is home to plenty of barge boats and the final lock of the canal. Before setting off, the Richmond Inn is the ideal spot to enjoy a hearty lunch and the owners are more than happy to share their waterways knowledge. From this location you can also explore the Shannon Blueway.
