MV Shannon Princess ( 12 passengers max.), 7 days and 6 nights, breakfast, lunch and dinner daily.
Imagine days spent meandering effortlessly through some of the most wonderful scenery in Ireland, gentle hours passed far from the madding crowds of everyday life, gliding past ancient monasteries, fairyforts and Celtic settlements....
This idyllic dream is realised when you enjoy a journey of seven days and six nights aboard the MV Shannon Princess - the most luxurious of hotel barges cruising the magnificent River Shannon. The heart of Ireland is yours to discover as you embark upon this most memorable of river cruises.
This is the most extensive inland waterway in Ireland and Britain, set amongst a spectacular landscape which is shrouded in legends, myths and the gentle mists of time. Little has changed over the centuries - Norman Keeps and Viking Towers still keep watch as the Shannon Princess sails through the unspoilt waterways of the Shannon.
You have the choice to avail of the wide variety of activities available in the area: scenic trail rides and lakeshore treks, championship golf courses, rich fishing in the Shannon, unequalled bird watching and even the chance to cycle through the lovely County Clare countryside to the next port of call.
After a day out on deck, enjoying the tranquility and unhurried pace of life on the River Shannon, you will look forward to the culinary delights prepared by the Shannon Princess` chef. Trained at the internationally renowned Ballymaloe Cookery School, her cuisine has become something of a gourmet legend on the waterways of the Shannon region. You will soon see why as you savour dishes of the finest and freshest ingredients, gathered from local country markets. Breakfast and lunch are similarly indulgent as your chef showcases her talents at every meal.
Stylish and elegant cabins, similar to those of a private yacht, provide every comfort as you retire for the night. Before then though, the well-stocked bar is the perfect venue where you can relax, unwind and savour this idyllic journey through Ireland.
