Fun At The River!
12pm-5pm, The River Shannon
Our beautiful riverbank is our best asset, and as always, there will be lots of fun activities for all the family enjoy beside and on the water.
Our local adventure specialists Shannon River Adventure are on board (pun intended) once again to provide activities for the whole weekend. There will be Kayaking Trips on the water, as well as the Climbing Wall to test your strength!
The Heritage Boat Association are also returning to our shores with an amazing display of 10 heritage boats for you to explore and learn about their fascinating history on the Irish waterways.
