Discovering Ireland Vacation offers these wonderful holidays on the River Shannon, the ultimate in get-away breaks. With 3 departure Bases at Carrick-on-Shannon at the junction of the Boyle and Shannon rivers, Portumna at the top of the majestic Lough Derg and Belturbet on the Erne, you can choose between quite different types of waters to spend a lovely holiday.
The onshore facilities at the Bases include comfortable reception foyers, instructional videos, showers, laundrettes, clothes drier, and parking. All the boats have a telephone on board for contact with the Base if required.
There is so much to see, so much to do and so many places to visit - all in amazing and contrasting scenery - and the freedom to do it! You have canals, narrow and wider sections of river, and lakes dotted with islands.
There are only 6 locks on the entire Shannon and 16 automatic ultra modern electronic locks on the Shannon-Erne waterway.
Choose your own pace in the long light evenings of the summer basking in the friendliness of the people and you'll understand why you will get drawn back again and again.....
