Carrickcraft Boat Hire
Ireland is famed the world over for its heritage and history, and on a cruising holiday with Carrickcraft, you will find numerous fascinating sites of historic interest, castles, gardens and heritage centres right on the river or just a short walk from the many moorings. To provide protection from invaders, many of the fortifications were built on islands or close to rivers, so with a Carrickcraft cruiser, you have access to many sites only accessible by boat - just moor up alongside and view at your leisure. Be transported back in time at the fascinating 6th century monastic site at Clonmacnois or spend some time exploring the many monuments on the islands of Lough Erne. You will be amazed at how the country's traditional culture has been preserved in modern day Ireland. As well as the many attractions described here, there are many towers and ruins alongside the river or on islands which you will cruise past, such as the round tower at Banagher or the medieval ruins on Trinity Island in Lough Key. Particular attention should also be paid to the many locks and bridges which have historic interest such as Meelick Lock and the magnificent 16 arch bridge at Shannonbridge. Even the harbours themselves tell us much about bygone days, for example the historic Richmond Harbour at the entrance to the Royal Canal. Carrickcraft has two dog friendly cruisers and with so many places to explore, you and your dog will have a wonderful holiday.
