Guided Walks

The Royal Canal Amenity Group organise guided walks and talks along the canal from mid March to October. The walks are FREE and our members who organise and run the walks do so in their own time. However, to cover the cost of our insurance, you might consider giving a donation at the end of the walk. Your support of the Royal Canal and the RCAG is greatly appreciated.

We would also ask walkers to please check out Share the Space link
