Exploring the River Shannon: A Journey from Limerick to Kilkee

Passengers Would Board The Boat At The Quayside In Limerick And Set Off Downstream Towards The Shannon Estuary. The Boat Would Then Enter The Open Sea, Passing By The Loop Head Peninsula And Eventually Arriving At Kilkee’s Sheltered Bay. The Journey Took Several Hours, But Passengers Were Treated To Stunning Views Of The Irish Coastline And The Chance To Spot Dolphins And Other Marine Life Along The Way.

The popularity of the boat trip began to decline in the mid-20th century with the rise of car travel, and today there are no longer regular boat services from Limerick to Kilkee. However, the journey remains a memorable part of the region’s maritime heritage.
