Boats

Cruise-Ireland offer an extensive fleet of two to ten berth cruisers to anyone looking for boating holidays. We have a choice of twenty-three different types of boat, all of which are fully fitted with every facility needed to ensure cruising is made easy and enjoyable. All boats for your holiday have a well designed fully-fitted galley facilitating easy food preparation for those wishing to self-cater. Alternatively there are many pubs and restaurants in the riverside towns and villages if you don’t want to cook on your boating holiday. In the boat descriptions, the berths are given as X+Y - the X is fixed berths, the Y is converting the saloon to more berths.

We strongly recommend for maximum enjoyment of your holiday, that you hire a boat with enough berths without using the saloon.
