Ireland—with its reputation for some of the lushest, most beautiful natural scenery in the world - offers a stunning location for cruising.

The River Shannon is a tranquil and friendly waterway, with many places of interest to moor up and take in the fresh, clean air and breathtaking natural panorama that surrounds you. The friendliness of the people coupled with the genuine warmth of the Irish cultural heritage, will inspire you and you may find yourself wanting to stay! Lovers of nature, fresh, unpolluted air and food, and history will especially adore this cruise

Where is it? - The River Shannon runs from the centre of Ireland to the south west of Ireland, although our cruises are only on the lower reaches of the river. This is often said to be the most beautiful and unspoilt area of ’the emerald isle’.

What are the cruises like? - Cruises on the Shannon Princess II will probably surprise you. The barge itself is exceedingly spacious, with every comfort considered and factored into your barging experience, whilst the warmth of the Irish people and willingness to share their significant cultural heritage, will surely delight you. The cruise route itself is a profusion of lakes, gentle river, green pastures and wide horizons.

Wildlife and nature abounds. Fishermen, hikers, naturalists alike will delight in this region. Your cruise on the River Shannon may include ancient old country inns and pubs, magical islands with castles nesting atop them or ruined Celtic settlements. There are also some excellent shopping excursions to be enjoyed!

For more detailed information and pictures on the Shannon Princess II, please click here.

The Barge Company also visited her in March 2005 and wrote about their findings, so please also check that out by clicking here.

Organic, fresh food, local cheeses and a super range of wines await you on the Shannon Princess II in 2008.

The spacious Shannon Princess II (above and right) and the typical,stunning Irish scenery.

How does this river compare with others in Europe? - Excellently. The wide, gentle Shannon River ranks highly as one of the most beautiful in Europe. The green landscape and golden sunsets will make this trip very worthwhile!

Why would I want to cruise here?

- Because you love beautiful countryside and natural havens where you can watch the birds and hear them sing, whilst still cruising in extreme comfort. You want a barge with all mod-cons but a cruise through a ?real’ land of vibrant people and authentic hospitality.

- Because you want to taste the fantastic traditional Irish cuisine and experience the much spoken of Irish charm. You also like to visit real Irish pubs and hear good, live music (often a possibility—the Irish at their very best!).

- Because you like a moderate temperature and not the extreme heat of southern Europe.

- Because you are fascinated by the history and culture of this wonderful island—perhaps you have relatives here and would like to return to know more of your own roots?

Feast on gourmet cuisine on the Shannon Princess II, much of which will be centred around traditional Irish recipes and always using local, fresh produce, much of it organic. Enjoy traditional Irish music on board as the sun sets (as above, middle picture). The Shannon Princess II will always has a very authentic, traditional atmosphere on board.

Ireland is known for its wonderful fishing, in clear, fresh, unpolluted waters.

Ruairi, your Irish barge Captain, can easily organise a days fishing excursion for those who wish to give it a try. Small boats such as those in the picture to far right can allow access to the quieter waters allowing for better fishing and more private relaxation. Entire fishing charters can also be accommodated for groups of up to 10 people.

Ireland Cruises!

Cruises to Ireland introduce visitors to a land of rolling green hills, towering seaside cliffs, picturesque villages, and warm and welcoming people. Raise a pint in a local pub, or shop for high-quality linens, tweeds, hand-knit woolens and Waterford crystal. You can tour the famed glassworks factory if your ship stops in Waterford on Ireland's southern coast.

In Dublin, sightseeing tours usually feature Dublin Castle, Trinity College (where the ornately illustrated Book of Kells is a prime attraction), the 12th-century St. Patrick's Cathedral and the city's classic Georgian mansions. When ships call at Cork, you can travel to Blarney Castle and take part in a longstanding tradition -- kissing the Blarney Stone -- or tour lovely Muckross House, a Victorian-era home set in a national park.

A number of cruises call at the Northern Ireland city of Belfast, where passengers can embark on a scenic coastal drive along the Giants' Causeway or take a guided tour of the Old Bushmills distillery, which has been producing whiskey for 400 years.

# Ireland is featured on Northern Europe cruises, which sail from late May through August. Some ships sail itineraries that concentrate entirely on the British Isles.

# If you need to fly a very long distance to reach your port of departure, we suggest that you arrive at the port city at least one or two days in advance of your Ireland cruise. This will give you time to rest and get oriented before boarding the ship. Most cruise lines offer pre-cruise hotel packages.
