Captain your own Cruiser

Experience the freedom of the Shannon. Captain your own cruiser and discover the hidden heartlands of Ireland. Over 800 kilometres of navigable waterways are awaiting your arrival with rivers to explore, lakes to cross and towns and villages to discover. Go at your own pace or simply relax and enjoy the tranquillity of the waterways or if your crew is adventurous then there are lots of activities to keep them active and involved throughout your stay.

Experience is not necessary and no licence is required. Training will be provided by our experienced and qualified staff. When you book your boat holiday your boat operator will send you a “Captains Handbook” which contains details of all you need to know about how to operate your cruiser.

The handbook contains details on how to prepare for your cruise, information on how the boat works, navigational information and how to pass through a lock.

All of our cruisers are fully equipped with the necessary safety equipment and navigational charts to ensure that you have a safe holiday cruise.   

When booking your boat holiday in Ireland, for the best value, safety and service book direct with an operator who is a member of the Irish Boat Rental Association.
