Check out these five ways to travel along the Shannon Corridor
By canoe: We begin with an obvious one: paddle power. Keep things simple by getting help from specialists in canoeing adventures, there are plenty around in bustling riverfront towns, such as Carrick-on-Shannon and Athlone. Top of the paddling pile is the 80km canoe trail stretching all the way from Shannonbridge in County Offaly to the twin towns of Killaloe/Ballina on the Clare-Tipperary border. Think rich selections of birds and wildlife and stretches of perfect quiet. If time is on your side, stop off for a pub lunch in Banagher’s Brosna Lodge.
