Shannon River Boat Hire - Suggested Cruises

Hiring a boat on the Shannon River offers freedom to discover the best of Ireland on your own terms and at your own pace. Our advice at Shannon River is to make a plan for your river cruise and if you stick to it, that's good. If you don't stick to it, that's good too! You may find a place the charms you so much that you don't want to leave, or you may want to see as much of the river as you can on your cruise. Below are some suggested cruises - these are designed to help you to make a plan but you don't need to stick to them, the great thing about a cruising holiday in Ireland is that you can choose your own way to discover the Shannon.
