Shannon Castle line
A holiday to satisfy all ages! Captain your own cruiser on the spectacular Irish river Shannon. Fishing and cruising at its best!
The Shannon River is one of the most scenic and attractive pleasure waterways in Europe, punctuated by many beautiful lakes as it meanders on its journey to the sea. The river is navigable from Killaloe in the South to Lough Key in the North, and through the Shannon-Erne Waterway into the Upper and Lower Erne Lakes. Along the way, through miles of unspoilt green countryside, you can visit ancient and historic ruins of long ago. Experience and enjoy the music, song and companionship at the many riverside towns and villages throughout the Shannon
For the fishing enthusiast there is nothing quite like the freedom of dropping anchor and either fishing from your cruiser or exploring the lakes and rivers with your dinghy – perfect for trolling and fishing in shallow waters.
A fine selection of Pike, Trout, Salmon, Bream, Roach, Rudd, Tench, Perch and Eels can be found throughout the Shannon system. License is required only for Salmon, however in the North of Ireland section of the Erne system, license is required for both Salmon and Trout.
Lough Derg is an ideal place to begin your fishing holiday. Commence your cruise of the Shannon from our marina at Williamstown Harbour on beautiful Lough Derg and enjoy the fun, relaxation and variety this holiday has to offer. Visit the harbours all around the lake with an excellent choice of pubs and restaurants, then proceed to the largely undiscovered river Shannon, with no crowded waters, just space, time and sheer beauty to enjoy.
You are Captain of your own cruiser – you decide where you want to go and how long it takes to get you there!
