Meet our Members

The Irish Boat Rental Association was formed in 1975 to provide a unified voice for the cruise hire industry in Ireland, to promote and develop a code of conduct rules and standards for the safe operation of the cruise hire business. 

All of our members work together with Waterways Ireland and Failte Ireland to improve and develop the overall product and to enhance the visitor experience. In 2019 the Irelands Hidden Heartlands tourism destination brand was launched on the domestic market in Ireland and will be launched in internationally by Tourism Ireland in 2021. Waterways Ireland will publish The Shannon Tourism Masterplan and together with Failte Ireland will set off on a journey to develop the Shannon as a centre for sustainable and eco-tourism.

For The Irish Boat Rental Association members this is an exciting time to be involved in the development of our product and to transform it into a fully sustainable tourism product. Their expertise and experience is available to ensure that you have the very best holiday experience possible.
