The locks on the Royal Canal are manual with lock keeper. They are open daily from 9 am to 1 pm and from 2 pm to 7 pm.
The locks on the Shannon-Erne-Waterwayare open every day from 9 am to 8 pm. They work with a magnetic card that can be bought at the base for the price of € 13. The same card allows access to the toilets in public ports, showers, washing machines and also to empty the used water holding tanks.
Leaving from Leitrim and going south, the locks are manual and cost about € 1.50. Spending the night in public ports is free but costs about € 15 in private marinas. It is forbidden to spend the night anchored on the lakes.
Navigation on the lakes is forbidden in rough weather (Force 3 Beaufort). Children up to the age of 17 must wear a life jacket. On the lakes, make sure you stay in the middle of the channel. Otherwise you risk running aground. Refloating a boat entails significant costs and these are covered neither by the insurance nor by the accidental damage waiver and will be for you to pay should this happen.
