viking ship cruises

Experience the Viking Ship Cruises located at the quayside in Athlone town, just 10 minutes’ walk from Prince of Wales Hotel. The Viking Longships have been sailing around our coasts since 795. The River Shannon is the main artery through the country and as we know the Vikings arrived by the river in Clonmacnoise in 842

Get on board and cruise along the magnificent Lough Ree, the lake of Kings, or voyage south to the famous monastic settlement at Clonmacnoise.

Hear about Viking hoards, high kings, tales of battles and saintly scholars while enjoying the natural beauty and rich wildlife around every corner along the riverside. In this 21-metre-long replica of a Viking Knarr, there’s something to spark the imagination for young and old.

Viking Ship Cruises caters for hens, stags, parties and all groups of people.
