Acres Lake Boardwalk

Acres Lake Boardwalk

Acres Lake Floating Boardwalk is an an iconic floating boardwalk around the lake, which extends the walking and cycling trails all the way into Drumshanbo, connecting it to Leitrim Village, writes Martin Branagan.

The boardwalk provide access to Acres Lake and via the Lough Allen Canal northwards to Lough Allen and southwards to Battlebridge, Leitrim village and Carrick-on-Shannon, and farther south from there.

In all, the Shannon Blueway encompasses more than 200km of waterborne or waterside trails. It links to the river Boyle near Carrick-on-Shannon, allowing access to Lough Key and its adventure playground, as well as the town of Boyle in Co Roscommon via Boyle Harbour.

A turn at Leitrim village gives access to the Shannon-Erne Waterway, which in turn leads to Lough Erne, the Fermanagh lakelands and Enniskillen.

Martin Branagan is a co-founder of and is passionate about promoting Leitrim as a tourist destination. Under the LoveLeitrim banner, Martin is touring the county in search of its hidden gems.

A Dubliner by birth and Leitrim resident by choice, Martin can be contacted on +353 (0)86 173 8417 for all advertising queries.
