Launched in October 2014, thousands of walkers, paddlers and cyclists have already enjoyed this first section of the trail from Drumshanbo to Carrick-on-Shannon which includes over 16 kilometres of canoe trail and ten kilometres of approved walking route. There are three loops between Battlebridge and Drumhauver near Leitrim Village. These include the nine kilometre loop between the two townlands, the five kilometre loop between Battlebridge and Drumleague and the four kilometre Drumleague/Drumhauver loop. Enjoy a meal or glass of wine al fresco at The Marina Hotel, set along the banks of The Shannon Blueway.
