Shannon Princess in a Lock

THE 10 PASSENGER SHANNON PRINCESS II .... is the largest luxury hotel barge cruising the Lower Shannon. Newly commissioned for late 2002, her thoughtfully designed interior includes twin or double beds with Lough views, a comfortable saloon, dining area and full length sun deck

Her experienced Captain and crew go out of their way to ensure your every need is accommodated. Your chef was trained at the Ballymaloe School and distinguishes herself at every meal with signature dishes such as parcels of wild salmon, roast of spring lamb, variations of shellfish stew with fresh herbs and of course a grand selection of desserts

Shannon Princess is all on one level with no steps from the saloon to the cabins.  There are 11 steps from the saloon to the outside upper deck and there is a handrail.  If you feel 11 steps would be too much then there is another outside deck with no steps.  95% of the daily excursions are on the same level so you will not have to worry about climbing steps and the minibus transfers you to the sites and therefore you will not have to walk too much if you prefer not too.  As most of the excursions are on the same level we can arrange the hire of a wheelchair for the week if you prefer.  The only excursion that may be a little difficult would be Cragganown as this does have a challenging walk for those who are less mobile and also steps involved.  You would be very welcome to relax on deck if you preferred not to participate on this excursion.
