Royal Canal Greenway - Longford
Longford Town, Co. Longford
One of the biggest towns along the Royal Canal Greenway, Longford Town in County Longford is full of great accommodation options and places to eat and drink after a busy day walking or cycling along the Greenway.

The section between Cloonbreany and Mosstown Harbour, of the Royal Canal Greenway in County Longford, passes alongside Corlea Bog which includes the Corlea Trackway, an ancient trackway dating back to 148BC. A short diversion off the greenway will lead you to the visitor centre.

At Cloonsheerin Junction, the Royal Canal Greenway splits in two, giving a choice of where to end the journey; one spur leads to Longford Town and the other to picturesque Richmond Harbour in Cloondara.

The Longford Branch of the Royal Canal, although not navigable, is very popular with walkers, runners and cyclists. On approaching the infilled harbour at Longford Town, which is now a carpark, you will see the original Harbour Masters house and the former Royal Canal ticket office.
