Boat Trip on the River Shannon to Mountshannon

This is a lovely boat trip on the river Shannon to Mountshannon village, a lovely quiet village on the shores of Lough Derg. Mountshannon can boast a large and well-protected harbour with floating jetties as well as stone jetties.

The village has a cafe, two pubs and one serves good food if you fancy a nice meal out. There’s a basic shop in the local petrol station but Mountshannon’s charm is in buildings and its old world charm, and of course in its people too.

Sadly the harbour I felt let down this lovely village. In all the boats that you can see in the drone footage only two boats were occupied. It’s a pity that people still think that it’s okay to tie up boats in public harbours and leave them unattended for long periods of time. There ye go, that’s my rant over!
