Excellent service as usual from the team at Carrick from check in to the return of the boat. Friendly and efficient. Had a few friends from Croatia on the boat, their first time, and great weather. Great fun in Cox's bar in Dromod. In the Shannon Star, a great old lady of the river, roomy and well able for the few windy days on the lakes. The development of electricity supplies at harbors, the facility of a shower base at Carrick (and places like Leitrim Harbor and Dromod as well) all add to the general feeling of a good trip. Not as "fancy" as some of the newer boats but a great lady of the river. Smoother on the water on windy days than the smaller boats yet still easy to navigate entrances like at Dromod's new harbor. Roomy. Five big guys with plenty of room, three showers and "heads". Driving from the outside gives a clear view. Well recommended even if one of the older model of craft available.

Excellent service as always. My only disappointment is the fuel charge, now per hour, as apposed to litre used. The fuel was expensive enough when it was at per litre rate. Charging per hour just seems to be a way to take more money of guests. Very reasonable price and pleasure

The holiday was fantastic, we enjoyed it thoroughly. The boat met all our needs but it was old and a bit shabby. The sheets didn't even fit our mattresses. The boat was shabby and old.

Being closed for lunchtime is unfortunate and it's annoying that check-in can take some time in the offices. It would be great if all that could be done beforehand so as we could get onto the boat quicker. Highly recommend renting from them! Lovely boat, plenty of room for our party of 4
