Battlebridge Lock

Battlebridge Lock is located on the River Shannon – Lough Allen Canal, 3 ½ miles from the southern entrance to Acres Lake in Drumshanbo, writes Martin Branagan.

The Lock is situated just a stone’s throw from Beirne’s of Battlebridge, the well-known Caravan Park, and a short walk from picturesque Leitrim village.

Battlebridge Lock forms the start of the Drumleague Lock Loop – a 5kms walk that takes you alongside the canal to Drumleague Lock.

After crossing the canal at the Lock, follow the trail back to Battlebridge Lock.

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.
