River Cruises

Take a break on the River Barrow, Ireland's second longest river. It runs 192km from source to sea and is navigable for hire cruisers from Athy to St Mullins, Co. Kilkenny. The available crafts are modern and easy to operate, fitted to the highest standards with full modern facilities. The Barrow hinterland is imbued with a riverside culture steeped in tradition where a plethora of pubs and restaurants with the best of Irish food, entertainment and hospitality can be enjoyed. The waters of the Barrow are suitable for swimmers, while towpath and woodland offer superb walking environment. Choose a week or weekend on our waterways and you will not be disappointed.
Barrowline Cruisers is a family run narrowboat hire company situated by the canal at Vicarstown, Co. Laois. Their base is perfectly located to enable you to explore the full extent of both the Grand Canal and River Barrow, two distinct cruising adventures. Venturing by boat north from Vicarstown, you travel the Barrowline section of the Grand Canal which links with the Grand Canal main line at Lowtown. From Lowtown you can cruise east towards Dublin or west to the vast Shannon and beyond. An ideal haven for the novice, simply relax and enjoy the passing countryside as its tranquil waters gently guide you on your way. Cruising to the south from Vicarstown you join the river Barrow at Athy where the scenery is very different from the north and the waters more lively. Cruising enthusiasts who have sampled other waterways are now turning to Barrow to meet the challenge of this exciting river.
