Description

Canal harbour associated with the Royal Canal, built c.1806, having dressed limestone retaining walls. Located to the southwest of Mullingar and to the north of Saunders Bridge (15310086).

Appraisal

A typically well-built canal harbour, which is a valuable part of the architectural heritage of Westmeath and the industrial heritage of Ireland. The quay walls are robustly built in fine stone masonry, which is testament to the long term ambitions of the Royal Canal Company at the start of the nineteenth century.
