Self-Guided Running Holidays

Explore the Royal Canal with our Self-Guided Running holidays

The Royal Canal’ towpaths offer a linear off-road track that spans over 140km from Dublin city into rural Ireland. This is ideal for runners of all abilities. You will pass through five counties, beautiful counrtyside and picturesque towns and villages. With so much to look at and explore, 5km or 10km can pass without you even realising it.

If you are tired of running the same routes and want to discover something new, Royal Canal Adventures has the running holiday for you. All you have to do is focus on your running we will take care of the rest. We have created running holidays below to choose from. We can also make tailor-made running holidays to suit the distances you want to cover and incorporate rest days into your holiday.
