The Inland Waterways of Ireland
- Of all the countries in Europe, Ireland particularly lends itself to exploration by water. It is an island of manageable size with deep-sea loughs cutting far inland, spectacular inland loughs surrounded by mountains, and majestic rivers connected by man-made canals. In a boat of suitable dimensions you can cross the country from Dublin on the soft east coast to Limerick and the Atlantic, or from Waterford in the southeast to Belleek in the northwest, without ever setting to sea.
This guide provides essential information on all the rivers and waterways of the Irish Republic and Northern Ireland. There are interesting general sections that describe the geography and history, and these are followed by details of locks, bridges, regulations and notes on dimensions. The distance tables are supported by fully illustrated two-colour maps and photographs.
