Drumshanbo to Leitrim Walk

5 miles (8.7 km)

This walk follows the Lough Allen Canal from Drumshanbo to Leitrim. The route is part of the Shannon Blueway which allows guided and unguided paddling and walking along the Lough Allen Canal and River Shannon fromDrumshanbotoLeitrim Village. It runs for just over 5 miles along flat paths with nice views of the surrounding countryside on the way.
The walk starts in Drumshanbovillage and heads west to pick up the canalside path at the southern end of Lough Allen. You then head south to Acres Lough where you can enjoy a lovely boardwalk passing over the water. You can see this on the google street view link below.
The canal continues south to Battle Bridge where you turn east towards Leitrim, with nice views of the River Shannon.
To continue your walking in the area you could try the Lough Allen Walk. This uses the Leitrim Way and the Miner's Way long distance footpaths to create a long circular walk around the large lake.
