Have you always wanted to go to Ireland for a holiday? Have you always wanted to go on a boating holiday? You can do both by hiring a yacht on the River Shannon. The Shannon offers over 500km of unspoilt waterways - the longest non-commercial waterway in Europe and gives you access to sights and sounds not available to the weary land-traveller.
From Leitrim in the north to Killaloe in the south, the Shannon offers some of the most spectacular cruising in Europe. There are some large towns, but most of the moorings are in small villages – but they nearly all have a pub! You can start your cruise in either of our two marinas - one at Carrick-on-Shannon and one at Banagher in County Offaly.
Unlike many other waterways, the cruising waters of the Shannon are lakes and rivers, not canals. And because the river flows very slowly, there are few locks and even these are manned.
