Waterways - Head Into The Blue

Think winding rivers and secret coves, small trails heading into the forest and leisurely strolls along streams, think paddling or cruising along reeded banks, before heading across open water to even more adventures in inflatable waterparks, shoreside castles, tree top walks and winding zip-lines. This is 'Heading into the Blue'. Think how much your family would enjoy learning new skills like paddling or boat handling; trying electric bikes or horse-riding. Staying in comfortable waterfront places with great food and memories building one on top of the other whether its short days out or a week away. 'Head into the Blue' this spring and summer with Waterways Ireland.
