Hi Maximus,

Waterways Ireland has much of the information you're looking for:

https://www.waterwaysireland.org/things-to-do/boating

*Shannon Navigation*

https://www.waterwaysireland.org/pla...non-navigation

http://wwi.maps.arcgis.com/apps/weba...e1d8dcf7ed78fa

I've only ever cruised between Parteen weir and Portumna. You'll be required to get a licence from Waterways Ireland for your own boat.


Information on navigating inland waterways can be found here: http://www.dttas.old.gov.ie/sites/de...al-craft_4.pdf

In Section 1.6 and Appendix 3 pp 154-158 for Shannon Navigation Buoyage.

I'd attach it, but it's 6.29 Mb.

Happy hunting.

shannon navigation

don't forget the ardnacrusha powerstation lock\lift its total of 100ft in two sections. its at lower end of the Shannon navigation between killalloe and limerick city. from limerick southwards you enter the estuary. I live close by and have navigated from kilrush town to lough erne in northern Ireland several times. you will not be disappointed.

I only really know Lough Derg really, but for what its worth:
-The Whiskey Still in Dromineer (best Guiness on the lough and a lovely seafood chowder)
-Larkins in Garykennedy
-Paddy's in Terryglass (specially if theres Hurling on)

It's a beautiful part of the world.

It is indeed. The Scarriff river is lovely and Mountshannon has good moorings also but definitely donít miss Dromineer, Garrykennedy and Terryglass. Itís worth reminding people that by and large mooring is free and to a good standard.

Thanks.
River Shannon is a beautiful water to travel on. As stated, Waterways Ireland website is a good place to start with charts and things to do on each part clearly indicated. Loads of slipways and harbours throughout and you will find people will only be too happy to assist you. Enjoy your trip.
You can also see the chart on Navonics Chart viewer online.
