Walking on the Shannon Navigation

There are numerous walks which take the walker alongside and above the Shannon Navigation.

Walks on the Shannon are found mostly around the northern section, lovely loops and linear trails are found in Leitrim and Longford, Waterways Ireland is continually developing the walking opportunities on the Shannon navigation. There are exciting developments taking place, including the floating boardwalk around Acres Lake, this extension to the Drumhauver Bridge to Battlebridge Lock walk will eventually connect the town of Drumshanbo to Leitrim Village and Carrick-on-Shannon, be sure to check back for details.

For now, click on your preferred walk below: 

​Name:​Distance:​Location:
Cloondara to Longford Town​16km (one way)​Longford
Drumhauver Bridge to Battlebridge Lock​10km​Leitrim

Looped walks, heritage trails, town trails and long distance walks are all linked by the Shannon into a hugely interesting and vibrant adventure! There is no one walk along the entire Shannon, but it is possible to see portions of the waterway from a v​ariety of routes. The Leitrim Way, The Arigna Way, the Hymany Way, the East Clare Way and Lough Derg Way are all way-marked trails, while the Sliabh Bloom walks take the walker in loops and linear walks near Lough Derg. It is impossible to list them all here, so visit http://www.irishtrails.ie/ for more information.
