In September 2018, the World Canals Conference will take place in Ireland. We invite you to journey to Athlone Co. Westmeath in the heart of Ireland and at the heart of the Irish Inland Waterways network.

Overlooking the mighty River Shannon, the longest navigable river in Ireland and the UK, Athlone is the perfect base in Ireland from which to explore the beauty of the country’s inland waterways. The two main canals the Grand Canal & the Royal Canal are within easy reach and provide first hand evidence of the regeneration that has taken place on these waterways, from commercial motorways to leisure byways. Ireland is proud to showcase the many restoration projects and the re-imagining of the waterways as linear parks & amenity spaces to cater for all lovers of water. A shining example of this is the Blueway concept.

All of this packed into a three day event, to say nothing of the traditional Irish Céad Míle Fáilte welcome extended to visitors from far and near. So come to Athlone and experience the re birth of Ireland’s inland waterways for the 21st century.
