Mullingar Harbour (via McNead's Bridge and Coolnahay Harbour)

A 23km trail broken into two short, managable journeys, travelling east to Coolnahay and west to McNead's Bridge.


Centred around the bustling town of Mullingar, the Royal Canal Blueway is a 23km paddling trail consisting of two individual trails varying in distance.

Starting at Mullingar Harbour the Blueway spans 12km east to McNeads Bridge (beside Mary Lynch’s pub) or
11km west to Coolnahay Harbour. The Royal Canal Blueway forms part of the wider Blueway network of multi-activity recreational trails and sites based on or closely linked with the inland waterways of Ireland.
