River and canal walks can have special appeal, the scenery always changing due to flowing water, weirs, locks and the changing countryside. Lenny Antonelli introduces some of the best river and canal trails in the east and east midlands, from short strolls to a five-day trek along the Barrow.
This guide presents over 40 walks, all within easy reach of Dublin and ranging in time from half an hour to three hours. As far as possible, the walks are circular so that one can drive to the start, park the car and return to it at the end. The walks are designed for the leisure walker.
