Went on a road trip last month to clare and planned the Shannon cruise trip in killaloe. Had it booked prior to travelling for the later sailing. We had arrived early to a fabulous sunny day that we decided to try and go with first sailing.
The guys who run it were so helpful it wasn't even a problem to change our times when we asked. An hr long cruise with friendly staff on the Shannon to lough derg would definitely recommend it.

Thus was one of the highlights of our trip! The guys on the boat were lovely and friendly. They have a bar downstairs. Good information while taking in he breathtaking views along the river and lough derg. I'll be rushing back to do this again the next time I'm down

As a seniors group it is just a fantastic way to spend an hour and a half. Relaxing, staff very friendly and informative. A most pleasurable trip. We do this cruise every year with our seniors group, then afterwards we go for lunch to the local pub Goosers or as this year The Lakeside Hotel, where we have a sing song and a bit of dancing. All together a great day out and very reasonably priced. Roll on next year.

The very best short cruise around. About an hour long it gives a good feel of cruising without the worry of weather because there is a nice inside sitting area with refreshments. People get a nice view of the lake.

First I must say I had nothing against the boat or its crew. The boat was spacious and clean and the crew pleasant. What was disturbing was the people on board. It is posted to 'supervise your children at all times'. This was completely ignored by some and several children ran amok. There was a large group traveling together talking so loud you could not hear the Captain talking about the history of River Shannon and Lough Derg. They were clearly not interested in listening to the dismay of others who were. Sad that people are so inconsiderate of others.

Hi, I am disappointed you felt your cruise with us was not enjoyable. I wish you had brought your concerns to my attention, I am on each cruise with our boat "Spirit of Killaloe" I would of course have asked the group you mentioned for a little consideration. I would not accept that children ran amok on our boat but they could easily have been a little excited as children often get when they meet up with friends. Thank you for your kind comments about our clean boat and pleasant employees.
