A river cruise on Irish waters

A stay with all the modern comforts!

River cruise specialists will tell you themselves: travelling by boat does not mean having to give up your comfort! The boats usually made available are all equipped with all the necessities: fitted kitchen, bathroom, heating, bedroom… You won’t be outdone!

Travelling by boat nevertheless requires you to bend to a few constraints. Thus, you will have to :

  • possess a valid boating licence
  • follow the itinerary defined beforehand by the organizer of your cruise
  • to regularly replenish your food supply.

Beyond these “small” inconveniences, you will have all the leisure to admire the exceptional beauty of the Irish waterways. Among them, we particularly recommend the Shannon, Lough Erne, Lough Key, Lough Ree and Lough Derg.

There’s nothing better than progressing at the pace of the current, admiring the view, and picnicking on the banks while fishing!
