Take our wonderful house-boat The Maude Gonne, out on the beautiful Grand Canal in Ireland. Included is a comprehensive barge driving lesson for free :)
A boating holiday is a perfect way to enjoy the spectacular scenery of the Irish waterways. You will get a boating lesson and shown how to navigate the canal.
As Kenneth Grahame wrote: "There is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats."
A wonderfully romantic way to travel!

The space
The boat is suitable for 2 adults, comes fully equipped with all you need. We will show you how to navigate the boat. A most wonderful way to see the beautiful countryside!
