Leinster Aqueduct Riverboat Cruise, for two, County Kildare

  • Relax and enjoy a leisurely tour on a beautiful ‘Amo Barge’
  • An ideal experience for two people to enjoy together
  • See the Grand Canal from a new perspective!

Take a truly unique trip along the Grand Canal sailing on a barge! This experience is ideal for two people to get away; enjoy a leisurely trip and see some of the most incredible accomplishments of 18th century Irish canal engineering.

Upon arrival, you will meet your friendly skipper, who will be your guide for the cruise. You will meet your fellow experience goers and then it’s ‘all aboard’ the M.V. Amo barge. After a brief safety demonstration and an overview of your trip, it’s time to depart the harbour!

Beginning at the harbour village of Sallins, you will head west towards the Leinster Aqueduct.  Soon after Sallins you take a right at Soldier’s Island, the only island on the Grand Canal. It is the junction between the main line and the Naas branch of the Canal and earned the name during the 1798 rebellion when guards were placed on it to prevent cargo barges being attacked.

As you journey along the Grand Canal, you will travel through the lesser-seen countryside and your skipper will give you a unique insight into the life & history of the canal. If you carefully observe the foliage on the banks you will also be able to spot an array of local wildlife.

Bar facilities available on board selling a range of local craft beers, wines and spirits. Tea, coffee and soft drinks also available.
