Our Whaly boats and paddle boards are a ton of fun – but it would take a lot of energy to explore all of Lough Ree in them. Instead, choose an easier option and check out the many boat excursions now available:
operate from Athlone and the captain ‘Viking Mike’ O’Donnell, knows every corner of the lake plus all its ancient secrets and legends. And where do Vikings come into it? Well, those Scandinavian scallywags managed to reach this far inland over 1000 years ago, much to the locals’ discomfort…
Barracuda Boat Trips
run a river taxi and tours of the Shannon.
have cruised the Shannon for over 15 years, operating from their Athlone base.
Fancy your luck with a rod? Lough Ree is amixed fishery with good stocks of trout, pike and coarse fish. Just ask when booking or during your stay and we’ll happily help arrange your Lough Ree or Shannon cruise or fishing trip.
