Moores Bridge Lisburn

Welcome to the website of the Lagan Branch of the Inland Waterways Association of Ireland.

The focus for the Lagan Branch is the restoration of the Lagan Navigation from Belfast to Lough Neagh.

Stretching for 27 miles the navigation covers sections of the River Lagan, the Broadwater and artificial cuts of canal.


Today the Lagan is no longer navigable and it is the hope of the Lagan Branch to one day see boats make the journey from Belfast through Lisburn and Aghagallon to Lough Neagh.

The Lagan Branch actively promotes the major natural and historic asset that is the Lagan Navigation as well as providing events where members can come along and enjoy their local area. It is an association of enthusiasts who want to learn more about the Lagan Navigation.

The aim of the website is to keep you up to date with events and information on branch activities, the Lagan and the the ongoing restoration of the navigation.
