River Shannon Boating Athlone to Shannonbridge

Ah, there’s nothing quite like some River Shannon boating and it’s lovely to see the sun come out on this lovely voyage from Athlone to Shannonbridge with a short stop off at Clonmacnoise for good measure! While a day of River Shannon boating can sometimes be a bit cold this day starts off chilly enough and a little overcast, you can see as the day progresses the heat builds and we cruise the River Shannon to Shannonbridge in glorious sunshine.  Have to say there’s a nice bit of aerial photography at the end of this video that I do hope you’ll enjoy. Thanks for watching.

River Shannon Cruise on Lough Ree

The sun shows its face for our river Shannon cruise across Lough Ree and the bit of sunshine always makes a difference. Mar gets upset when we have to go broadside to a few waves but all in all it’s a great trip. Hope you enjoy it too.

 

 

River Shannon Cruise in pretty lousy weather

This is a River Shannon cruise in pretty lousy weather. None the less we cruise south past Dromod, Rooskey, and Tarmonbarry. We get a great welcome into Dromod harbour from a flock of swans that treat us to a fly past.

The weir at Rooskey is almost covered by the high water levels. This is just because of the recent rainfall. The Shannon is a very slow flowing river and only drops a few meters between its source and Killaloe.
