The boat was way bigger than we expected and very comfortable. We loved the views whilst driving from the upper deck and then the tasty meals rustled up in the easy to use galley. The staff were very friendly and helpful both with information and help with the booking and getting us on board and sailing when we got to Ireland This may have been an " entry level " craft but she was spacious and comfy

Emerald Star Le Boat are a fantastic company to deal with. I was pleasantly surprised by how personal such a large company were. Added to by the extra lengths the receptionist (and unfortunately I don't have her name) went to by staying after close of business to wait for me to drive to Carrick to collect all the items we left on board! Thank you for a great holiday.

Reception staff were incredibly rude from start to finish, both seemed extremely reluctant to provide help and were generally unwelcoming. The reason I gave 2 stars as opposed to 1 was because everything else about the holiday was absolutely superb and I would otherwise highly recommend a Shannon boating holiday to anyone. Great service and communication from booking representatives over the phone especially Julian.

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.
