One Way Hires
One-way cruises are a great way to see more of the river in your time available as you don’t need to retrace your steps. They are available between Carrick-on-Shannon and Banagher and between Bellanaleck and Carrick-on-Shannon. One-way hires are only available for multiples of full weeks.
Each one-way route takes about a week, so if you have two weeks, you could travel all the way from Bellanaleck on Lough Erne, to Banagher on the Lower Shannon or vice versa. If you want to book a Bellanaleck to Banagher one-way, it is a minimum of 2 weeks but cannot be booked online, so please telephone the office.
Please note that you will be informed of the direction of your one-way cruise 2 weeks before the start date. There is a supplement of €150 to take a one-way cruise.
This does not include any costs associated with moving you or your car back to where you started.
If you are flying into Dublin Airport, there is no extra transfer cost to arrive and depart from a different marina.
