Ireland

River Shannon and Lough Erne

Feel the irresistible lure of the Shannon-Erne

The Shannon River gives Ireland’s central reaches their character. It’s an obvious feature if you study a Shannon River map. At a glance, it’s clear that the waters influence the land. The fishing is superb, and golf is a passion! The towpath is level, so you’re in cycling heaven! As you travel, you’ll stop in villages, explore medieval churches, and kick back in the pubs!
