The definition of a Blueway is “a recreational water activity trail that is developed for use by non-motorised water activity enthusiasts. It is defined by trail heads, put in and take out points and readily available trail information. Blueways can be developed on canals, rivers, lakes or along the coast and can incorporate other associated land based trails adjacent to the water trail.”
These natural trails have wide appeal for local use and domestic visitors, as well as encouraging international tourism. Blueways can be used by all ages and abilities – with something for everyone, the slogan “Blueway, do it your way” has been adopted to reflect their accessibility and diversity.
Blueways Ireland is a recreation and tourism initiative centred on outdoor activity along the beautiful environs of the waterways of Ireland. Blueways provide endless opportunity to enjoy a wide range of activities such as canoeing, cycling and walking.
