Brief River Description

A mellow river with some small rapids and weirs.

Directions to the Put-in

The get on is above or below the weir in Bandon town. Next to Lidl and Supervalue. There's a few more spots down river with suitable parking and easy river access, even a chipper half ways.

The put in normally used (there are a few options): continue out the Bandon road from Inishannon, straight through the little roundabout at the petrol station, all the way into Bandon until you come to a t-junction (river can be seen on your right). Turn right, then immediately left before you cross the river, so heading up along the river, big supervalue carpark is just up here. You can choose either above or below the weir.

Directions to the Take-out

If coming from Cork or anywhere civilised, head out the main Cork / Bandon road and you'll pass through Inishannon. At the end of the village the road bends left over a bridge, this is the get off. To park, turn left immediately after the bridge and 50m further on you'll see parking on your right. You can walk down to the river through the trees from here.
