Welcome to Carrickcraft

The largest and most experienced cruiser hire company in Ireland. Operating along some 300 majestic miles of silvery waterway, Carrickcraft have provided idyllic cruising holidays in Ireland for over 35 years. No licence is required to cruise the rivers of Ireland and no experience is necessary as we will provide full training.

Big news!

After nine years, we are moving on the Erne from Tully Bay to Bellanaleck. Bellanaleck is on the river section between the two loughs, close to Enniskillen and on the main Dublin to Enniskillen road. The village is a 10-minute walk and has a convenience store, take-away, tea shop and Lace Museum. Within the marina complex, we have The Moorings restaurant and bar, toilets, showers and ample parking.

Short breaks now available

Short breaks on all boats from Carrick, Banagher and Bellanaleck are now available to book online and by phone. Why not come for 4 days for the price of 3 when you start on a Monday.
