Well prepared. Already have motored with Emerald Star and happy to allow us save time on training. Stormy morning next day and received text message about the danger to go further into Lough Derg, Except for one cantakerous individual in Banagher (not a hire boat) the friendliness of everyone on the river was fantastic. The new pub, Fallons at Shannonbridge, better than the rest

Straightforward booking process. Friendly staff and efficient refund of damage deposit etc. The boat itself was in good condition. Very spacious and well stocked. This is my second time on Le Boat / Emerald Star and will not be my last. Spacious enough for the full 8 people and well maintained.

The measure of good service is not in never having problems, its how problems are dealt with. We had a couple of minor issues, caused by the previous boat users, which were out of Emerald Star's control but they went out of their way to make sure it was all rectified. The staff in Portumna were extremely helpful, friendly and a pleasure to deal with Highly recommended for a family holiday

Excellent welcome, introduction and information. Vessel in excellent condition. Overall first class and made for a perfect few days out on the Shannon. A classic lady of the Shannon. Well laid out, appointed and plenty of room. A little hard to handle in tight spaces if windy if the particular vessel has no bow thruster which our one did not. However, this is being picky as the vessel was fantastic.
