Cruise Description

7 Night Cruise sailing from Carrick-on-Shannon roundtrip aboard a Locaboat vessel.

Shannon:

Our new base at Carrick-on-Shannon is the ideal starting point for exploring the Shannon, Ireland’s longest river. It’s a long way from any commercial traffic, navigable for 220 km, has only six locks, and has lakes that are sometimes real inland seas. You’ll be bowled over by the beauty of the landscapes bordering the river.

As you cruise southward, you cross Lough Ree to reach the lively town of Athlone, the Celtic site of Clonmacnoise and then Portumna, with its Renaissance castle. If you head orthwards, you take the Upper Shannon towards Boyle, with its delightful little 12th-century Cistercian abbey, before reaching Leitrim.

Then you enter the Shannon-Erne Waterway which meets the Erne to the north, the other great Irish river. The canal, which is 63 km long, has been magnificently restored and takes you through a dreamlike landscape dotted with picturesque villages like Ballyconnel and Belturbet.

In County Fermanagh, we have a new base at Bellanaleck, 8 km from lovely Enniskillen. It’s a paradise for bird watching and fishing (the practice here is ‘no kill’ - almost all catches are returned to the water). The base is ideally located for exploring upper and lower Lough Erne. The country of «five lakes and five hundred islands» is waiting for you!
