The Newry Canal Way, a Waymarked Way, extends 20 miles between Bann Boulevard, Portadown and Carnbane, Newry. It offers opportunities for enjoyment to walkers of varied abilities - from those who aim to walk the whole way to those who prefer to wander along shorter sections.

The route passes along the towpath of Britain's first summit-level canal opened in 1741, and navigates its way through the Ulster countryside, with a wealth of local history, archaeological sites and the superb engineering of the canal itself, something to fascinate every walker. Moneypenny's Lock and Acton Lake are spectacular for scenery and wildlife - especially flocks of migratory swans in winter
