See Offaly from a different perspective

Covering a distance of 132 km and running from Ringsend in the Dublin Docklands to Shannon Harbour, the Grand Canal meanders through the Offaly countryside from Edenderry in the east to Shannon Harbour in the west of the county.

The Offaly section of the Grand Canal route is punctuated by historic sites, canal locks, lock houses and industrial architecture from ancient days. The route embraces a landscape untouched by modern agriculture and remains a linear oasis for the flora and fauna that were originally common throughout our countryside.

Dotted along the 71 km route are the towns and villages of Daingean, Ballycommon, Tullamore, Rahan, Pollagh and Belmont offering accommodation to walkers, cyclists and boating enthusiasts.
