From Bellanaleck to Upper Lough Erne, a fairy-tale waterway cruise in Ireland

From our base in Bel­lanaleck, you’ll be able to nav­i­gate the region’s emblem­at­ic sites. For a one-way cruise to Car­rick on Shan­non or a roman­tic week­end in an enchant­i­ng set­ting, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Whether you take to one of the region’s numer­ous canals or the mighty Shan­non Riv­er, you’ll be able to enjoy the many locks – a high­light of all water­way cruis­es – which here can be ful­ly auto­mat­ed or man­u­al. Every lock you go through will be a source of plea­sure on this Irish water­way cruise and, in Bel­lanaleck, we’ll train you to oper­ate them – a real high­light for the youngest crew mem­bers. Whichev­er your cho­sen direc­tion, you’ll also be able to indulge in anoth­er of the plea­sures of water­way cruis­ing, name­ly the chance to leave your house­boat and take to the tow­paths on foot or by ATB bike. So, embrace the oppor­tu­ni­ty to fur­ther explore the Irish coun­try­side.

Ireland’s treasures accessible from your houseboat

Leave Bel­lanaleck and head towards Upper Lough Erne, the south­ern­most of the region’s big lakes. Here, you’ll nav­i­gate your licence-free boat between dozens of islands, mak­ing you feel like you’re cruis­ing on a riv­er. There are numer­ous ideas for stop­ping points along the way, and fish­ing enthu­si­asts will be delight­ed with the oppor­tu­ni­ties on offer. Mem­bers of your crew who wish to engage in all kinds of water activ­i­ties will be equal­ly sat­is­fied. Nau­ti­cal bases have been devel­oped on some of the islands, while oth­ers invite you to more unusu­al excur­sions, reveal­ing the traces of a rich and event­ful past. Don’t miss a vis­it to one of the most amaz­ing monas­tic sites : Devenish Island.
