Cruise the Grand Canal through Ireland's Midlands on a beautifully restored Canal Cruising Barge.

This is a very special experience on Dublin's Doorstep for the outdoor enthusiast. Rich in reminders of when the canals were a transport artery and a corridor of social contact the canal network is now one of the county's most valued assets, appreciated for its contribution both to the natural environment and the built heritage of the county. Although artificial in construction the canals complemented rather than dominated nature and their waters and banks sustain plant life, fish, birds and mammals in a habitat of attractive diversity.

Full barge handling training is provided.

Sallins is an inland harbour village with all the charm of rural Ireland right on dublin's doorstep. Experience Co. Kildare's rolling pastureland in an area renowned for horse racing and fishing.

Kildare was shired in 1297 and assumed its present borders in 1832, following amendments to remove a number of enclaves and exclaves.

The county was the home of the powerful Fitzgerald family. Parts of the county were also part of the Pale area around Dublin
