Barrowline Cruisers

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.
