A new Kayak Launch Deck and a Floating Swim Dock have been installed at the Doon Shore with other Kayak launches soon to be installed at the River Head Wooden Bridge and at Lough Key Forest Park.
In November 2022, €199,800 was allocated by Minister for Rural and Community Development Heather Humphreys for the Canoe/Kayak ‘Easy Launch Systems’ for Lough Key, Doon Shore and Boyle Canal/River along with a Floating Dock at the Doon Shore and trail upgrades at the Wooden Bridge.
The application for the development was made by Roscommon County Council with support from Boyle Town Team.
The Kayak Launch and Swim Dock are in addition to the major upgrade work completed at the Doon Shore which was recently named one of the Top 10 Must Visit Swim Spots in Ireland.
Additional facilities are also due to soon be installed by Waterways Ireland at Boyle Marina which will include three Floating Pontoons and Gangway.
