Killaloe River Cruises


Step on board one of our modern, clean, safe and comfortable passenger boats, in their idyllic setting on the shores of Lough Derg, Ireland’s pleasure lake with its breath-taking views of Counties Clare and Tipperary. Killaloe River Cruises provide sight-seeing tours on Ireland’s finest waterway, the River Shannon. The relaxing tour is accompanied by a captain and crew. The views from our purpose-built cruise boats offer the best opportunity to explore and capture the River Shannon, its wildlife and spectacular scenery. Both of our boats depart from the quay on Lakeside Drive, Ballina/Killaloe. The towns have been awarded the heritage town status because of their rich and historic past. Killaloe/Ballina offers a wide variety of shops, boutiques and walking trails. Later you can stop off at the restaurants and bars each with its own brand of cuisine and fine pints.
