Go with the Flow offers canoeing holiday trails along Ireland’s inland waterways. Stating 30 mins outside Dublin discover the beautiful Barrow. Or start in Dublin city and cycle to your river trail. Wild camping – Walk – Pedal – Paddle. The Barrow river offer Classic canoe trails.
Our business is primarily water based so you will be travelling by canoe. However we can incorporate cycling from Dublin city centre and a bit of walking also. Our trail starts just 30 mins outside Dublin in Monasterevin. This dormatory town is accessible by bus every hour and by regular rail service or alternatively by bicycle along the Grand canal from the centre of the capital. The Barrow was once a very busy trade highway with Barges plying their trade up and down the course delivering Guinness and other goods to the trade along the way.
All this commercial traffic ceased about 50 years ago and what remains now is an absolute diamond that shines bright in the heart if the Irish countryside. This waterway is slow-moving for the most part. Not much more than 100ft across at its widest and passes through magical countryside wooded valleys and interesting villages and towns as it makes it way to sea about 70m miles from our starting point.
