Boat Hire

Boating on the Shannon Navigation

Boating on the Shannon is really accessible with a full range of trips, day boats and cruiser hire available all along the full length of the river. Use Business Listings​ to find an activity provider.​

​​​​Boat Trips: Large accessible tour boats provide visitors to the area with public and private tours of the navigations from 90 mins - 2 hours duration. The scheduled public tours take place in high season Easter – September, while private tours for groups can be arranged most of the year, apart from the maintenance period mainly in winter.

Day Boat Hire: Day boats are available for self-drive hire from multiple locations on the lake. Ranging from 2 to 10 people and provided for angling or touring (with lifejackets and basic training,) people can enjoy the waterway taking in their favourite place at their own pace.

Cruiser Hire (No License required): The freedom of making your own travel decisions, flexibly deciding to stay or wander a little further off the beaten track, makes crusing holidays a marvelous experience. Never say 'once in a lifetime' because once you've tried it, you'll want to come back again and again.  Self-drive cruisers range in size from 2 - 10 persons and can be hired from bases in Carrick-on-Shannon, Athlone/Lough Ree, Banagher, Portumna and Whitegate on Lough Derg. Fitted out to a high standard, with sleeping cabins, bathrooms /ensuite bathrooms, kitchen and dining areas as well as a lounge area, these craft are truly a home away from home. Most companies require the cruiser to be returned to the base from which it was hired but some offer a one-way trip and will collect and return you to the start point to collect your vehicle. Training is provided at the outset and lifejackets are provided by all companies. Support is also provided enroute should you run into difficulties.​

Blueways: On your journey around the waterways, you are likely to see a new brand appearing, called "Blueways Ireland". Blueways are a network of multi-activity trails - paddling, walking and cycling – based on or closely linked with the water, together with providers facilitating access to activities and experiences. These outdoor recreation opportunities are there to be enjoyed by everyone, so we would especially encourage boaters to please be aware of and have special regard for small craft in the water.
