 O’Briensbridge is a little village standing on the eastern verge of County Clare, on the bank of the River Shannon.

The bridge which gives its name to the village stands across the Shannon, and has at its east end, in County Limerick, the village of Montpelier.

The section of the river just down from O’Briensbridge is a very popular angling and water sports spot.

A short journey upstream at Parteen, the flow of the Shannon is diverted into a man-made canal to allow navigation of boats and barges to the city of Limerick. 

You can avail of the O’Briensbridge- Old Barge Loop Walk.

On the trail you can experience a little piece of history, as it includes the old canal towpath used, in years passed, for horses to pull barges up the waterway
