Welcome to Cruise-Ireland, home to two of Ireland's longest established and most experienced cruiser hire brands, Carrickcraft and Waveline Cruisers. We are the largest cruiser hire company in Ireland with the biggest choice of boats and marinas. Operating along some 300 majestic miles of silvery waterway, we have provided idyllic cruising holidays in Ireland for over 35 years. No licence is required to cruise the rivers of Ireland and no experience is necessary as we will provide full training.
Don't worry, you are not alone. Half of our guests have never been on a boat before and we will teach you all you need to know. It's really not difficult and our instructors will make sure you are happy before you set off. And even before you arrive, you can do our online tutorial which goes through the basics - have a look at the tutorials on Shannon Navigation or Mooring & Casting Off to get a feel for how easy it is.
