|Welcome to Carrickcraft,
Ireland's largest and most experienced cruiser hire company. Operating
along 300 miles of silvery waterway, we have provided cruising holidays
for over 40 years. No licence is required to cruise the rivers of Ireland,
so anyone over the age of 21 can take command of one of our cruisers.
Cruising along the majestic waters of the Shannon and the Erne as they slowly meander their way through Ireland's rich countryside is an ideal way to sample the laid back way of life which is synonymous with rural Ireland. Think of it as your holiday cottage on the water - but it moves every day!
In 2015, we merged with Waveline Cruisers and you will see the Cruise Ireland brand much more. It also brings an extra four types of boat to the fleet and the combined expertise will enhance your holiday enjoyment.
Our smallest cruiser, the Carlow, suits two people ideally and our largest is for twelve people, with other sizes in between. Start from one of three marinas, two on the mighty Shannon and one on the peaceful Erne. Or try a Carrickcraft speciality, a one-way hire from one marina to another.
There is plenty to do when you decide to stop for the day. You can fish, cycle, visit ancient heritage sites, go horse-riding or just sit and watch the wildlife. And for food, you can cook on board in the fully-fitted galley or you can go out to eat in a great range of pubs and restaurants.
