Reviews for the The Shannon Short Break
Check in was good, everything clearly explained, then the guy who showed us how to use the boat was fantastic (sorry cant remember his name but I think he was from Czeckslovakia). Then we had to leave suddenly before our last night and even though it was late in the evening check out was arranged with absolutely no fuss by a very nice German lady. Overall great customer service.
Customer Service, scenery, boat, all exceeded expectations. Thank you
Really easy to book, really straight forward hand over, well equipped boat. All good
It was a great short break
The services is good from booking the boat to collecting and returning the boat. The staff is helpful as we are new to boating.
A short break is a good try for first boating holiday, we have already booked the next boating trip and looking forward to go.
Great time had, cruised down river and back up again. Good fun stags weekend (3 nights)
stop in every town for a pint
We started off going up the waterway towards Belturbot but decided to stay in the river where navigation was less arduous and there appeared to be more wildlife. We got as far as Boyle on Lough Key and spent two nights at the Lough Key Forest Park
What we liked best was the wildlife, particularly the water fowl, and the forest in the Forest Park. It was such a pleasure just to be afloat and to gain skill as we went along in handeling the boat.
