Get away from it all on the idyllic inland waterways of Ireland with Carrickcraft. Operating from three marinas, Carrickcraft is one of Ireland’s largest cruiser operators with boats for two to ten people.
Carrickcraft is one of Ireland's leading cruise hire operators, operating along some 300 majestic miles of silvery waterway. They have provided idyllic cruising holidays for over 30 years.
Cruising along the Shannon and Erne Waterways gives you a perfect opportunity to sample the tranquil setting of unspoilt Ireland. The many small villages and towns nestling along the banks offer a world of tradition and culture – a heritage which is uniquely Irish. The natural forest areas are ideal for leisurely picnics and gentle walking or cycling excursions further inland, which make for a great way to explore the heart of the Irish countryside.
Signs of earlier civilisations can be found close by, as the region is steeped in heritage from the prehistoric, early Christian and medieval ages. One of the world's most famous monastic sites, Clonmacnoise, is nestled along the banks of the River Shannon. The waterways here are teeming with fish, so if angling is your thing, you can enjoy quality fishing unique in Ireland. Golfing is another sporting activity which is much enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.
Carrickcraft offers an extensive fleet of two to ten-berth cruisers for those looking for a three-night or longer boating holiday. They have a choice of nine different types of boat, all of which are fully fitted with every facility needed to ensure cruising is made easy and enjoyable. All boats have a well-designed, fully fitted galley facilitating easy food preparation for those wishing to self-cater.
Carrickcraft offers a choice of three dedicated marina bases, Carrick-On-Shannon and Banagher on the Shannon, and Bellanaleck on Lough Erne. Cruising holidays can begin and end from any of these ideally placed marinas.
