Riversdale Barges

 Cruise / Posted 9 months ago

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.

Our 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 our boats are not, we have widebeam barges.

Our Widebeam Riversdale barges have been widened to 10 feet (3.1 meters). The extra width, coupled with the level floor of the barge, gives greater living space and comfort to the holidaymaker.  It allows you to navigate the Irish Inland Waterways, The Shannon Erne Waterway, The Shannon River and Lough Erne with peace of mind. It also provides the space for two independent bedrooms with the third bedroom in the living area being private at night. A spacious and comfortable seventh berth is also available.
