- View as map
Starting from Athlone in County Westmeath, enjoy a nature cruise on the River Shannon with Viking Tours and experience the Viking and religious history of Lough Ree and historic Clonmacnoise.
Relax and cruise the River Shannon on a replica Viking boat while the children dress up and become Vikings for a day.
With Viking Tours, based in Athlone, County Westmeath, you can experience some of the 300 years of Irish Viking history on a voyage into Lough Ree or downriver to the monastic settlement and round tower of Clonmacnoise.
Hear of the escapades on these waters through live commentary on Viking battles and tales of buried treasure. There's a variety of helmets, swords, shields, and a scroll for each child to put on for the ultimate dress-up experience – it's fun and excitement for all the family.
Onboard Viking Tours, you'll find a snack shop and bar, but you are welcome to bring your own refreshments, too. Tours depart from Quay Wall at the rear of Athlone Castle and tickets can be purchased on the ship. Tours operate from February-October.
