Carrick-on-Shannon, the gateway to both the north and south Shannon cruising region, is a major boating centre and thriving town. Its old-fashioned narrow streets, diversity of shops and traditional Irish nightlife make this a perfect place to start your holiday. Don’t forget to visit Ireland’s smallest church - the Costello Chapel is only 18m2 in size! The County of Cavan, it is said, has 365 lakes, one for every day of the year and Belturbet is perfectly placed to cruise just some of this myriad of waterways.

Belturbet is also well served by bars and restaurants, while golf, walking tours and fishing are popular activities that are well catered for. Further north, Upper Lough Erne offers clear waters and impressive - almost mountainous - scenery, dotted with many islands, coves and inlets. From peaceful Portumna, enjoy the delights of Lough Derg, one of Ireland’s finest lakes.

Easy access to Lough Ree and the entire Shannon waterway is also possible. Portumna’s broad streets and majestic parades of shops and houses are an obvious reminder of the town’s Georgian past. But wherever you cruise, you can be sure to enjoy Ireland’s renowned reputation for hospitality everywhere you go, from friendly lock-keepers to outgoing publicans and from helpful shop-owners to awardwinning restaurateurs, we’re certain you’ll enjoy ‘the craic’ in Ireland!
