It is a lovely walk next to the Shannon river. You can even get the chance to feed the swans and the ducks. You can sit down on the benches and just relax. I think it is great for families with babies,toddlers or older children....More

Plenty of wildlife especially Ducks and lots of Swans happily swimming in the river and on the banks. A lovely place to walk for all ages. The waterfall is spectacular with the town in the backgrond

This was a sunny and beautiful day. We started this walk from the Canal Banks street. The path is light and pleasant. Unfortunately there were some rubbish during the path, near the river, but this is people's fault as they throw their garbage there. When...More

We started this walk from the Luan Art Gallery. The path was level so suitable for pretty much every body.
