Foynes Shannon Estuary Walk
Foynes, Co. Limerick
Cloudy days
Foynes is a village and major port, located on the banks of the majestic River Shannon on the N69. The area is home to the Foynes Flying Boat Museum, and the nearby Knockpatrick and Boyce Gardens.

There are some twisty paths to explore that offer fantastic views out over the estuary and a picnic area which includes a special adapted picnic table for wheelchairs.

For the nature enthusiast, there is a range of tree species, bottle-nosed dolphins, otters and views to Foynes Island, the home of the famous mariner/ circumnavigator Conor O’ Brien.

For the historian, imagine the transatlantic flying boats landing in Foynes 1937-1945. Although relatively small, this is a unique site that offers the visitor a great opportunity to take some time out and soak up what nature has to offer.
