Overview

Sit back and enjoy a 2 hour cruise on Lough Reed while enjoying a glass of wine or strawberries and cream as the beautiful scenery drifts by on our classic wooden motor yacht "Romaris" From Athlone we cruise up the river and on to the lake where we stop at Hodson Bay before crossing the lake to Hare Island and Cusson Point before we gently cruise back down to Athlone. As always a pot of fresh tea or coffee is complimentary.
