Running between Leitrim Village and just north of Belturbet, the Shannon-Erne Waterway links the two great waterways on the island, the Erne and the Shannon.
The Shannon-Erne Waterway was previously known as the Ballinamore and Ballyconnell Canal and opened in 1860.
It re-opened in 1994 after restoration, it is 63km of river, lake and still-water canal.
It takes approximately 13 hours to travel and is known as the location where Ireland’s ‘little people’ originate!
The Ballinamore Looped Walking or Cycling Trail meanders alongside the tranquil waters of the Shannon-Erne, with the picturesque village of Ballinamore at the centre. This 4.5km looped trail starts at Ballinamore Marina before looping around at Longstones and back to the beautiful town of Ballinamore.
