Duration of the cruises: 60 – 90 minutes

Wedding Parties & Special Events Cruises

Make your day extra special with a Viking adventure. For our private tours we have a range of cruises to best suit your needs. This can be a tasteful cruise to the Hodson Bay Hotel for afternoon tea or you can pillage Sean’s Bar on arrival. Either way, you will enjoy the beauty of the Inland Waterways and witness everything Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands has to offer.

There is fully stocked bar onboard with craft beers, local whiskeys, wine, and soft drinks. We also have a P/A system if you would also like to bring a USB stick with the music of your choice.

Planning your Lough Ree Adventure


Athlone Castle – N37 V593

If multiple cars are arriving, we recommend parking at O’Connell Street Car Park N37 XW58 @ €3 per day. If you are traveling by coach, we recommend using the coach bays beside SS Peter & Paul Church.

All the other Lough Ree departure/arrival points have parking facilities.

Bus Transfers

If you require a bus transfer, Viking Tours can recommend a local transport provider.

For Glasson Village please note: A bus transfer is required for part of this route because the village is not connected to the waterways. Again, Viking Tours can assist in this regard.

If there is a wheelchair user please contact us in advance
