What Our Guests Say...

We were looked after like royalty! We booked as a group for a Walking Cruise. We adored our guide and so loved exploring the Shannon's trails. We enjoyed amazing picnics and returned to the barge for gourmet dinner, Champagne on deck and hot tub for tired bones! Ruairi our captain organised a visits to a local cheesemaker, an artist's studio and music onboard to celebrate an Anniversary. Thank you to the Shannon Princess crew for a trip of a lifetime.

Words can never express our gratitude for such thoughtful care, delicious gourmet meals, concern for our comfort and genuine kindness as we have received this week! Everyday we were treated to Irish culture and amazing sites. And everyday we were truly pampered. Thank you Shannon Princess and The Shannon Princess “family”!

This is our fourth trip onboard Shannon Princess . Superlative in every way.

A super experience.

The Voss Family, Florida, USA

It was amazing from start to finish. We saw the Irish countryside in a way we wouldn’t have expected. The crew felt like family by the end of the week. Their attention to detail was beyond expectation. We are so looking forward to returning, along with our children and grandchildren, and sharing the adventure on a Shannon Princess 'Family Cruise'.

This was an experience of a lifetime. Equal to the superb scenery and activities of the Shannon are the impeccable service and friendship of the Shannon Princess crew! Ruairi, Olivia, Ross, and crew not only made sure we needed for nothing- but they also made great traveling mates. If I ever can find a way to get back here I will. If you are considering a trip with them- book it without hesitation. You will love it!

Larry Rudd, Texas, USA

Can’t say enough great things about this barge! Beautiful scenery, artful cuisine, gorgeous and super efficient crew, loved the shore visits - such fun. Ruairi also organised golf, horse-riding and fishing for our group. Nothing was too much trouble.

Olivia and Ruairi are wonderful hosts—not to be missed.

M. McSweeney, Perth, Australia.

Loved it, loved it, loved it! Relaxing for an entire week! Olivia your food is superb. Everything was heavenly. You MUST write a cookbook!

Janet Paul, Connecticut, USA

Never before have we experienced an all-inclusive that was beyond 5 stars, but this one is! Captain Ruairi, Chef Olivia, and First Mate Ross, plus their awesome crew have all helped this to be the trip of a lifetime. Excursions, beyond 5-star meals, wine and libations, and superior service details have contributed to this being the trip of a lifetime! History, culture, social customs, supremely friendly townspeople, lovely geographic surroundings, and many other facets of this wonderful country have made this a trip we will never forget and will likely not match again. Thanks be to God!!

As I sit here and reflect, I just want to express my heartfelt thanks to all of you – Ruairi, Olivia, Ross, and crew for making our trip so special. The attention to detail and to our respective personalities was just amazing to witness. I can speak on behalf of everyone that the entire experience was very special. We loved the amazing food and the curated wine – and most importantly we loved all of you. We had occasion to have a reunion and we toasted Shannon Princess with fondness. So I am making it my mission to sell Ireland, the river Shannon and the Shannon Princess. I am so looking forward to booking another trip. It was simply the best and will live on in our memories.
