Der untere Shannon

Banagher

Fahren Sie mit einem fĂŒhrerscheinfreien Boot auf dem unteren Shannon

„Banagher ist unschlagbar“, lautet ein altes Sprichwort – dort hat Carrickcraft also seinen sĂŒdlichen Hafen gegrĂŒndet.

Der Hafen von Banagher in der Grafschaft Offaly liegt ideal fĂŒr eine Bootsfahrt auf dem Shannon sĂŒdlich von Athlone und in den Lough Derg.
Der untere Shannon verlĂ€uft durch eine hĂŒgelige, ĂŒppige Landschaft voller Geschichte und echtem irischen Charakter. Der Fluss schlĂ€ngelt sich langsam an Clonmacnoise, der alten christlichen Hauptstadt Irlands, vorbei und in die Weite des Lough Derg.

Das Leben verlangsamt sich entlang dieses Abschnitts des Shannon, andere Boote werden seltener – die GerĂ€usche der Natur ĂŒbernehmen die Oberhand.
