When it comes to river cruises, Ireland remains one of the most fascinating undiscovered locations in the world.

The Shannon is perhaps the ultimate location to enjoy the best river cruises. 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.
