The service was really good. We used Le Boat twice over the summer from carrick-on-shannon. A special mention to on of the guys that showed us around the boat and provided some driving tips. I believe his name is Peter (He is not Irish so that may be spelt different). He was a great help and even provided some more tips when we just did a quick stop off. Absolutely love these trips.

Emerald Star did not disappoint- the quality of the boat and service were excellent. The boat was exceptionally clean- bathrooms, kitchen could not be faulted. Peter showed us all the workings of the boat and gave us a great introduction. We have already recommended Emerald Star. Everything about the boat was very impressive- extremely clean.

Very well organised system for booking in and departing. Friendly and helpful staff Well equipped and comfortable boat. Plenty of room for the six of us. A large boat to manoeuvre in tight spaces - took some time to get used to

We were let out with wipers not working on boat, lots of things missing and were told nothing could be done. Isolated a young lad who addressed most of the issues. Wipers and wet pillows and sheets were two big problems. The vacation was good apart from wet bedding and wipers not working and all communcications with your office

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
