Episode #14 The Camlin River, we cruise part of the Camlin River loop

The Camlin River loop.

The Camlin river forms a cruising loop taking in part of the river Shannon as well as the Camlin river and even a short leg of the Royal Canal. We head out from a mooring close to Richmond harbour and travel roughly north. We first

have to overcome a problem with a weir and then squeeze beneath a low bridge. There are two locks on the Camlin Loop one on the river Shannon as well as a second one on the short stretch on the Royal Canal. This circular route is popular with canoeists as well as with shannon cruisers. If you have traveled the Royal canal from Dublin the Camlin River is the perfect ending to that great voyage.
