|Accommodation in Banagher|
Banager is a beautiful town on the River Shannon.
It is on the R439 road 14kms (8.5 miles) from the Georgian town of Birr.
It boasts a modern marina for river cruisers and watersports facilities
which replace the old defensive importance of the town on the banks of
the Shannon reflected in the 17th century martello tower fortification,
bridgehead and batteries which still command the river crossing. A strategic
river-crossing for six hundred years or more, Banagher to-day is a place
of peace and beauty. Over the past fifty years, it has grown and grown
in importance as a centre for everybody who loves the River Shannon and
everything to do with it. The town is centred on its main street which
runs downhill to the river and its harbour. The old quays have been extended
and a new marina built upstream of the fine stone bridge. Shops, pubs
and restaurants cater for the hundreds of cabin cruisers that tie up there.
Canoes and boats can be hired and there is a canoe training centre.
