Royal Canal Greenway — Longford to Clondara Section



This off-road trail travels along the old Royal Canal spur from Longford to the main Royal Canal and then onwards to Clondra village, the termination point of the Royal Canal. Completely flat, the terrain consists of tar and chip trackway. Almost entirely off-road, although the trail meets six road crossings where care is needed. Surrounded by farmland, bogland and lush canal bank, the trail is brimming with natural scenery, birdlife, accompanied by the canal’s placid waters, this easy trail is a treat.

Longford Town boasts an array of pubs, cafés and restaurants, while smaller Clondra and its surrounds are home to a handful of welcoming spots for refreshment too.
