Blueways Accreditation

Sport NI and Tourism NI are working on the Blueway concept which is unique to the island of Ireland.

A Blueway is defined as “A network of approved and branded multi-activity recreational trails and sites, based on, and closely linked with the water, together with providers facilitating access to activities and experiences.”

Blueways aims to get new visitors to use the waterways and also increase participation in water based sport and recreation.
