Banagher is a pretty marina town located along the River Shannon in County Offaly. It is a popular spot with boaters as the marina is right beside the town so you can just moor up and walk into the heart of the action.
As you’d expect from a town on the River Shannon, there are plenty of water activities too including fishing, sailing, cruising and canoeing.
Appreciate Banagher’s setting in the heart of the Callows, with its scenic water meadows and flat lands. Swim in the open-air swimming pool on the riverside, stroll around the town to see the modern marina and historic quays, and later, have a meal in one of the bustling local restaurants.
For a small town, there is plenty to do, especially if you enjoy historic buildings and castles. You can also play a round of golf and soak up the atmosphere in some lively pubs, sink a pint of locally brewed beer and listen to traditional Irish music.
