Waterways of Ireland

Cruising the River Shannon provides centuries-old monastic settlements, lush landscapes, dramatic scenery and delightful small villages. From our three strategically placed bases- Portumna, Carrick-on-Shannon and Belturbet - you can cruise the full expanse of the Shannon and its lakes or just select a particular area in which to potter about and enjoy your vacation. Cruising at a very leisurely pace along the Shannon-Erne waterway, Europe’s longest inland cruising system, you’ll enjoy beautiful countryside, historic castles, grand houses, deserted hamlets and ancient monastic settlements.
