There are some things it's good to know when your cruising the Shannon River in Ireland like where to moor, or where you can do your laundry. There are service blocks at many marinas along the river that provide bathrooms, showers and laundry facilities. There's also information on taxis, banks, doctors and churches where available.
There's a small quay for mooring, and the river here is quite wide. The lock keeper for Albert Lock (down river) can be contacted at 071-9620715.
