Munster’s first Blueway, launched in Bantry in August, is part of an inviting network of water trails along the west coast of Ireland

The new water-based trail will take paddlers on a 2km, 6km or 9km water trail in the picturesque Bantry Harbour and encompasses up to seven different points, starting at Abbey Slipway and taking in Whiddy Island before moving across to Reenbeg Point and back via Railway Pier.

The trail invites visitors out onto Bantry Bay to enjoy a host of activities like kayaking, paddleboarding and sailing available in the area.

The network was developed by Bantry Bay Port Company, in partnership with Waterways Ireland, the Irish Sports Council National Trails Office, Canoeing Ireland, BIM, and Fáilte Ireland.
