Ireland River Cruises

An unforgettable taste of the Emerald Isle

Ireland River Cruises

When it comes to river cruises, Ireland remains one of the most fascinating undiscovered locations in the world. Offering a mixture of folklore, quaint customs, friendly locals and the sort of lush green landscapes which earn the island its nickname of ‘The Emerald Isle’, Ireland river cruises are sure to satisfy even the most demanding enthusiasts!

The Shannon is perhaps the ultimate location to enjoy an Ireland River cruise. The country’s rolling green pastures, ancient Celtic monasteries and an abundance of wildlife are common place on the carefully chosen route. An Ireland river cruise will put you in touch with legends and fables as well as the warm and hospitable Irish people. Their extraordinary history has been varied and sometimes difficult but they will always find the time to chat and pass the time of day.
