Paddleboading - Locations and Routes

Are there many paddleboarders on here?

If so can you share your favourite locations and routes?

So far I find the grand canal in kildare quite nice, and plan to do some of the liffey in the summer.

Got a board recently, going to try the Malahide estuary where I got a lesson previously.

Between Castleknock and Clonsilla.
Not sure where it starts and ends, but it's around that area.
I think it's named after the fact that a passenger boat sunk there and almost 20 people drowned.

Through the Deep Sinking and on Towards Leixlip

If you carry on you will pass through a suburban area and soon reach "The Deep Sinking". Here the Royal Canal is narrow and as much as 30 feet below the bridlepath, fatal for the occasional draught horse stumbling in the old days and still potentially dangerous today.

The chasm continues beyond Coolmine Station and Kirkpatrick Street. Only after Kennan Bridge will the pathway level out, become less bumpy and wider. Callaghan Bridge and Clonsilla Station are almost the last urban structures, give or take a few new estates. Because this is the beginning of the commuter belt, where Dubliners moved to a more rural home until the urban landscape, lifestyle, and problems caught up with them.
