SHANNON BANKS WALK

Stretch your legs and see the sights

Before dinner, with the sun on your back and water lapping at your side, take a stroll along the Shannon Banks Walk. It begins in the shadow of Athlone Castle and leads you along a nature trail that’s bursting with a diversity of wildlife. Stretching along a five-kilometre loop, you’ll pass lawns, grassy verges and parklands. You’ll walk under Sycamore, Norway Maple, Red Oak and proud Horse Chestnut trees.

From Moorhen to Heron and from Coots to Little Grebs, you’ll hear the birds sign as they glide over the water. It’s just one of several wonderful walks and a great way to see the town. What’s more, it’s best way to set you up for a meal and drinks in the lively pubs afterwards.
