Hosted by our professional Walking Guide – our Walking Itinerary embraces the luxury and comfort of barging, along with the satisfaction and exhilaration of quality walking tours.
Our Golf Cruise Itinerary includes 3 of Europe’s best golf courses and one local course. The K Club was host to the 2006 Ryder. Adare Manor Golf Course is part of the beautiful Adare Manor Estate in Adare Village, Co. Limerick. We have also included the world famous Lahinch Golf Course. On the shores of the wild Atlantic Ocean, this will test any golfer and will probably rank as the most memorable golf course a guest will play on in Ireland. Included in the Golf Cruise is one local course, Glasson Golf Course, located right next to our moorings in Glasson. Golfers describe Glasson as simply breath taking. We don’t leave non-golfing spouses/partners hanging about, a “tantalising” Cruise Itinerary awaits them.
