River Shannon

A guide to the River Shannon and all the amenities, restaurants, watersports, boat hire and activities along the river

The River Shannon is one of the most spectacular tourist destinations in Europe and offers unspoilt cruising waters with large areas of lake and river and few boats. Unlike parts of mainland Europe, there is no commercial traffic to avoid - just you, your boat and nature.
The River Shannon is a nature-lovers paradise with abundant wildlife.
The River Shannon is an anglers paradise with excellent coarse fishing and some game fishing - and as you will be on a cruiser, you go where the fish take you.
The River Shannon is an historians paradise with heritage featuring strongly in our holidays. There are excellent ruins going back to the 12th Century and many, such as Clonmacnoise, are easily accessible from the water.
The River Shannon can be a waterskier's paradise (unfortunately you have to provide the skiboat) as there are numerous bays and inlets where you will find shelter and calm conditions. We have slipways at our marina so that you can launch and recover your boat.
The River Shannon is a gourmet's delight with many pubs and restaurants along the route. Sample the formal dining at The Wineport near Athlone or head for Terryglass on Lough Derg for a casual, but excellent, meal.
The River Shannon has peace and tranquility.
The River Shannon is the place for the perfect holiday and it is easy to get to from Dublin Airports or from Ferry Terminals.
