Embark on a journey through time during your Irish cruise

With Les Canalous, you can choose a house­boat to respond to your pref­er­ences and meet your require­ments. You also have the free­dom to opt for a two- or three-day cruise or to organ­ise a two-week hol­i­day. Whether yours is a one way or round trip, every water­way cruise with Les Canalous is per­son­alised and adapt­ed to your desires and expec­ta­tions, so don’t delay – head straight to our Banagher base. Here, we’ll give you an intro­duc­tion into steer­ing your house­boat, which you’ll then be able to nav­i­gate towards your cho­sen des­ti­na­tion. And with hun­dreds of kilo­me­tres of water­ways, this region of Ire­land has no short­age of attrac­tions for you to enjoy. From Banagher, you’ll eas­i­ly be able to reach the region’s largest lake, open to nav­i­ga­tion, the Low­er Lough Erne. This is indeed a must-see, and will delight fish­ing enthu­si­asts, along with fans of all kinds of water activ­i­ties. The sporti­est among you will rel­ish the oppor­tu­ni­ty to escape your house­boat and take to an ATB bike for rides through the region’s green land­scapes.

Irish waterway cruising from Banagher : an invitation to travel

The water activ­i­ties per­mit­ted by Low­er Lough Erne are not the region’s only leisure pur­suits. You can also enjoy the many golf cours­es in the area. A cruise from Banagher will also enable you to embrace its water­way her­itage, includ­ing the locks, through which you’ll enjoy trav­el­ling. You can fur­ther explore this her­itage by nav­i­gat­ing to the far end of the lake. Here, the pow­er of the water has allowed for the instal­la­tion of the largest hydro­elec­tric plant in Ire­land, worth tak­ing a detour to see. A water­way cruise from Banagher also guar­an­tees you the chance to uncov­er the secrets of the region’s event­ful and excit­ing his­to­ry. Make sure you moor your boat and set off on foot to vis­it the ruins of the monas­tic site of Clon­mac­noise, the ori­gins of which date back to the mid­dle of the sixth cen­tu­ry.
