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 those who enjoy the Royal Canal to please check out Share the Space


December 27th Christmas Jumper Walk

We were hoping to run the Royal Canal Maynooth Christmas Jumper Walk on Sunday  December the 27th. Although we looked at a number options for organising the walk we felt none would comply with the Covid-19 restrictions. Consequently we hope to hold the event later in the spring

Details of Proposed Spring walk:

  • The walk will commence in Maynooth Harbour (date & time to be arranged). It will then move to Maynooth Main street and continue into Carton from where it will proceed to the canal at Pikes Bridge. From Pikes Bridge it follows the canal back to Maynooth where refreshments will be available.
  • The route is about 5Km long and is wheelchair-friendly
