Our boats - Ireland

House-Boats rental Barging Ireland

You will no doubt be pleasantly surprised by Ireland's mild climate and the warmth it gets from the currents of the Gulf Stream. With only 13% cultivated land, it's not hard to see how this country got its national colour - emerald green.

The country is home to nearly 500km of navigable waterways, ideal for river tourism, punctuated with only twenty-one automatic locks and two lift bridges.
If you don't fancy too much hard work, you'll be pleased to know that there are two 130km sections with no locks whatsoever!
You will sail primarily along rivers, with a few long lakes to cross too, as well as a canal between Carrick on Shannon and Belturbet.
