The Grand Canal path runs for 80 miles from the Grand Canal Basin to Shannon Harbor. You can run anywhere along the canal. Some sections have a dedicated path and the surface can vary. But it’s pleasant and run-able about anywhere. Connecting the southernmost parts of Dublin to the River Shannon, this path spans many miles, with plenty of spots for a jaunt along the quiet canal.
We’ve mapped out a 5.5 mile route from Grand Canal Docklands to the M50.
