The Irish Waterways

The first piece of advice we offer people when choosing a route is not to worry about it too much - Ireland is a small country and the landscape along the river doesn't change greatly from Lough Erne to Lough Derg. There are subtle differences along the way and we've outlined the differences as much as possible - good pubs, restaurants and history on the Lower Shannon, good activities on the Upper Shannon and a bit of both on Lough Erne. Click on the images below for more information on a specific waterway.

The Lower Shannon and Lough Derg

The lower Shannon and Lough Derg have some of the best historical sites and pubs/restaurants on the Shannon. Lough Derg is probably the most pictuesque on the Shannon with hills surrounding the lake and some very interesting islands, the most famous of which is Holy Island, the site of a monsatery founded by St. Colum around 520 AD.

The Upper Shannon

The Upper Shannon has some of the best activities and pubs/restaurants on the Shannon. Lough Key Forest Park is worth a visit with some great family-based activities, and Shannon River Adventure on Kilglass Lake near Rooskey will keep you busy for the day - you'll sleep well afterwards!There are cosy pubs all along the upper Shannon.

The Erne Waterway/Lough Erne

The Shannon-Erne waterway is a lovely, tranquil waterway with 5 small towns along it's length, each with pubs and restaurants. Lough Erne is very picturesque and has a good mix of activities and historical sites in the islands and harbours around the lake. Enniskillen is a large market town with restaurants aplenty and good places to visit.
