Get A New View And Explore Ulster’s River Towns
Get out and about this summer around some of Ulster’s most beautiful rivers and explore what they have to hold.Rivers, streams and fresh water areas in and around Portglenone Marina, Drumaheglis, Belturbet and Kilrea have received a massive cash injection to allow the public and visitors to the province to step off the beaten track and revel in a tourism attraction that many don’t realize exist on their doorsteps.
The new campaign, Fresh Waters, run by The North East Partnership under its RIVER Project, aims to educate the local community and tourists about the wealth of camping opportunities, walking trails and cycling routes amid a backdrop of some of Ulster’s most stunning water ways; that take visitors inland to appreciate the natural landscape carved out by rivers, lakes and streams. The Lower Bann, the River Erne and their neighbouring towns open up a whole new tourism sector for locals and tourists to enjoy, with an expansive heritage to be explored.
