Ireland’s Lakelands & Inlands Waterways Encompassing counties Cavan, Monaghan, Roscommon, Westmeath, Offaly, Laois, North Tipperary and East Clare.

 

Irelands Lakelands & Inland Waterways offers the visitor an opportunity to discover ‘real’ Ireland for themselves without competing with throngs of other visitors trying to enjoy its hidden gems.  This exploration can be done from land or water; meander down the longest inland waterway in Europe, the River Shannon & Lough Erne, on your own hired cruiser or hop onto a tour boat to discover our early Christian monastery at Clonmacnoise and afterwards discover Athlone’s Anglo Norman past at Athlone Castle.  Hop off and discover the remains of the old Irish landed gentry by visiting their Houses, Castles & Gardens across the Lakelands  such as Birr Castle, Portumna Castle, Belvedere House, Strokestown House, Emo Court and many more.

 

If you need to up the tempo of your holiday there’s more than enough to do – try water sports on any of the Lough’s,  go horse racing at Kilbeggan or Greyhound Racing a few nights a week– a guaranteed great night out. Our Slieve Bloom mountains are high enough to get breath-taking views but low enough to reach the top of them to see those views. Appreciate them more with like-minded others by partaking in the many walking festivals on the Slieve Blooms.

 

You’ll be spoilt for choice in this engaging yet tranquil region with the finest range of accommodation and restaurants strewn throughout. So you can come to Lakelands and drive our country roads, marvel at our historic sites or appreciate our statues – but we would prefer if you were swept up by our history, be dazzled by our stories and partake in our music. Come and discover Ireland’s best kept secret - Ireland’s Lakelands & inland Waterways.
