Riversdale Barge Holidays

Set on the Ballinamore to Ballyconnell canal, Riversdale Barge Holidays is a most tranquil way of spending a holiday or weekend break. The freedom of travelling the canal system and through numerous lakes in County Leitrim offers all the comforts of home with the excitement of leisurely travel. The pubs, restaurants and many small towns along the route will ensure a truly Irish welcome and genuine Craic.

Riversdale barges are a modification of the traditional narrowboat. The old narrowboat was restricted in width by the narrowness of the old industrial canals but Riversdale Barge boats are not, and have widebeam barges.
