The rivers sections of the inland waterways as well as one of the canals have attracted rowing clubs some of whom have enabled their members to enjoy the river amenity for over 100 years.
Many rowers begin through school clubs and continue through life, rowing for exercise and competitively! Others begin later in life and enjoy the experience of setting their own pace at which to enjoy river life.
The clubs in Ireland (the Shannon & Grand Canal) and Northern Ireland (Erne System and Lower Bann) are a great starting point and their contact details can be found in the listing section.
Before choosing to row, be sure to familiarise yourself with the guidelines for the safe use of unpowered craft on inland navigations. View the guidelines here.
