Digby Lock Riverboat Cruise, for eight people, County Kildare
- Relax and enjoy a leisurely tour on a beautiful ‘Amo Barge’
- Up to 8 people can enjoy this experience
- See the Grand Canal from a new perspective!
Take a truly unique trip along the Grand Canal sailing on a riverboat! This full day experience is great for small groups or families to 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 riverboat. 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. As you journey along the Grand Canal, you will travel through the lesser-seen countryside, coming across sites such as the ‘Bog of Moods’. Your skipper will give you a unique insight into the life & history of the canal as you go and if you carefully observe the foliage on the banks you will also be able to spot an array of local wildlife.
Just before Digby Bridge keep an eye on the right hand side of the tow-path and you will see another engineering wonder that was an elaborate overflow system known locally as the Four Pots. The riverboat will ascend through the lock before turning to make the return journey to Salins.
Bar facilities available on board selling a range of local craft beers, wines and spirits. Tea, coffee and soft drinks also available.
