  • This is a great way to explore the banks of the Grand Canal. One of the two great canals built over 200 years ago connecting Dublin to the Shannon. Lovely peaceful way to enjoy a weekend exploring...

  • Wonderful walk starting in Dublin and all the way down to River Shannon. Parts of the way suitable for bikes. Don't forget to grab a camera as you'll have a chance to encounter many different water birds on the way.
  • The Grand Canal (Irish: An Chanáil Mhór) is the southernmost of a pair of canals that connect Dublin, in the east of Ireland, with the River Shannon in the west, via Tullamore and a number of other villages and towns, the two canals nearly encircling Dublin's inner city. Its sister canal on the Northside of Dublin is the Royal Canal.
  • By bike from Maynooth to Leixlip or to Kilcock very nice way!
  • I have walked from Dublin to Maynooth a few times. Would love to do it again.
  • Stopped at the Royal Canal where it passes above the road outside Longwood. There’s also a second bridge beside it for Rail traffic. The construction and design is quite remarkable considering it is 150 years old. You can grab a fresh coffee there too!
