River Levels

There are some great online resources that allow us to check real-time river levels at home before we go to the river. This is set up through a great website specifically for kayakers called RiverSpy.net and another website called waterlevel.ie.

Water Levels at Meelick Weir:

Upstream of the weir (at Victoria Lock)

Downstream of the weir

The main other rivers for us to look at are:

Boluisce (fun whitewater river in Spiddal)

Inny (fun introduction to whitewater in Ballymahon)

Lower Corrib (short but very fun run through Galway city)

Tuam (great play feature on the River Clare, just outside Tuam)

Glens (advanced whitewater river)

Kilcolgan (introduction to moving water in Kilcolgan)
