Since 1974, Shannon Princess has specialised in creating luxury hotel barge holidays on some of the most beautiful waterways in Europe. Their River Shannon cruise, aboard the 10-passenger Shannon Princess, brings you in touch with the very soul of Ireland.
The Shannon Princess is the largest hotel barge cruising the River Shannon. Her thoughtfully designed interior has panoramic windows through which you can view the passing scenery and includes a comfortable saloon, dining area, and bar. The Shannon Princess also features a full-length, rooftop sun deck ideal for relaxing with a drink or watching the sunset after dinner.
The five suites have en suite facilities and offer a choice of twin or double bed configuration. The experienced Irish crew go out of their way to ensure your every need is accommodated. Your chef was trained at the Ballymaloe School and distinguishes herself at every meal with her signature dishes, while your captain has piloted and managed the Shannon Princess for many years.
Cruise highlights let you see the Iron Age Corlea Trackway Visitor Centre, tour the legendary 6th century Clonmacnoise ruins, enjoy a full-day excursion to Portumna Castle and Galway City and savour a traditional Guinness and oyster lunch. Also pay a visit to the unusual, haunted Leap Castle, take a tour of Birr Castle, with its stunning landscaped gardens, explore Killaloe and its cathedral, and, last but not least, visit the Craggaunowen Iron Age Life Re-Creation project.
