Reviews for the The Celtic Cruise
We spent 2 days in Dublin,before heading to Carrick on Shannon where we boarded Elegance.
we really enjoyed our trip.I really like to get off the tourist track when traveling,by going down the Shannon river,we witnessed Ireland in a way most never will.We visited many small towns where the people were very friendly,the river views were stunning.Roosky,Portuma,Terryglass,and many more were great adventures.Rent the Bikes! This made it possible to check out these towns as sometimes town was a mile away.
I enjoyed the Ireland trip though it was not our favorite.Your staff on both ends were fantastic but if you are not into fishing it's a little boring.I fell and tore my ACL and meniscus jumping off to tie a line I was impressed with the Doctor but unpmpressed with the medical info in the packet.We ended up getting care ourselves and we will continue to barge with you.
Athlone was a lot of fun.But once back on the river more dining info and a lot clearer markers while crossing the lake would have been helpful.I was on crutches and in a lot of pain for the rest of trip so not much to contribute but the gentalman whom helped me so much when we got back to base I wish I had asked his name.He single handed got me completely sorted assured me it was ok that I couldn't clean properly (My husband took the train to get the car as I couldn't walk) and was kind and reassuring.Always pleased with your staff.Deb in booking is a little tense and impatient but you have to go through her to book with you so I take a deep breath before calling.
Travelling up Lough Ree on a beautiful sunny afternoon with a strong southerly wind cruising the channels through the Carnadoe reed beds
Amongst the very many delights along the way, my favourite places are the Carnadoe waters/lakes including Grange and Kilglass. Also Lough Key, the Camlin river and Richmond Harbour are absolute musts
Wonderful atmosphere, enchanting landscapes, charming villages and towns, the locks crossings and finally the absolute silence.
