The Lough Derg Way
The Lough Derg Way is a 64km walking route that starts at the Tourist Office behind the Hunt Museum in Limerick City in the west of Ireland and follows the River Shannon and its associated canals north-westwards to the lake port of Dromineer on Lough Derg. Discover breath-taking views and picturesque villages along this stunning route.
Discover Irish heritage, historic landmarks, cultural kicks, and sensational mouth-watering cuisine along the route. Explore the hamlet of Clonlara, the village of O’Briensbridge and the ancient heritage town of Killaloe, which was once home of the famous 11th century High King of Ireland, Brian Boru.
The terrain along this route consists mainly of canal and riverside paths at the southern end, and mainly country roads at the northern end, some sections of which can be hazardous with fast-moving traffic. Other than at the start in Limerick, there are very limited options for public transport connections along the route.
