There are a few put ins at mullingar including a ramp in the town centre. This is my prefered lauch; drop the canoe and put car in the car park opposite.

Abbeyshrule is a nice place to launch into the royal canal- pretty remote canoeing if you head either way and few locks on this section. Pubs and shops. It is also possible to launch on the inny next to the bridge on the south side away from town. I have also taken out from the canal and launched into the inny at the viaduct just upstream but its a steep portage
