Walking on the Shannon Erne

Walking on the Shannon-Erne Waterway

Running between Leitrim Village and just north of Belturbet, the Shannon-Erne Waterway links the two great waterways on the island, the Erne System and the Shannon Navigation.

​T​​he Shannon-Erne Waterway was known as the Ballinamore and Ballyconnell Canal and opened in 1860. Re-opened in 1994 after restoration, it is 63km of river, lake and still-water canal. It takes approximately 13 hours to travel and is known as the location where Ireland's 'little people' originate!

While the birds flock, the herons gaze and the water is calm, a walk on the Shannon-Erne waterway is an experience like no other. Choose your preferred walk below:
