Guest Book for Pleasure Cruisers Ireland
Please see below some guest book comments we have received over the years.
Just back from our first boat trip with Pleasure Cruisers. Wow. What can I say about Fergus and Dave. We had the Galileo for four nights and from the moment I booked it last year these guys could not have been more helpful. They spent a couple of hours with us on induction showing us the proper way to tie up the boat, where to go, restaurants, pubs, routes. Touch of class with the bottle of wine which we had on the boat the first night after a lovely meal in Cox’s of Dromod. Everyone we met along the way were helpful to us. We had a fantastic holiday in a beautiful part of Ireland so kindly organized for us by Leitrim’s adopted sons. Dave & Fergus thanks a million and expect a repeat booking from us in the next few weeks.
2nd time back with Dave and Fergus, such nice guys, booked the 4 berth Galileo with friends for the June bank holiday weekend. Had such an amazing time again would highly recommend the experience and lough key was amazing, best time ever in our lovely little country and Dave recommended some great places to eat and gave us the best training ever he puts you at ease and makes you confident with the boat. Can’t wait to come back very soon
We rented The Camlin for 3 nights at the end of July and would highly recommend it to anyone. The boat was in pristine condition and was very comfortable. We were given an excellent induction and we set off fully confident on how to operate the boat. Dave & Fergus couldn’t have been more helpful. All in all a brilliant holiday. Thanks guys
Dave & Fergus were really helpful in training us up to use the boat, spending as much time as we needed to feel confident in its use. The three days we had on The Shannon were completely glorious, cruising from Roosky over to Kilglass and Carnadoe then up to Carrick, then Lough Key. The boat had all the amenities needed and all worked perfectly well from showers to a working kitchen. I would really recommend pleasure cruisers, you really won’t get better looked after with a nicer boat for your holiday.
Thank you for the warm welcome that we received from you both, we had great weather and the boat was lovely too. I had great fun learning to tie up the boat. Thank you again for all your help and hope to see you again in the future.
Hi Dave & Fergus, Thanks for making our holiday a very enjoyable experience. We are quite sure that our apprenhension and concern in taking a cruising holiday was palpable on our arrival. However, your hospitality and wounderful induction lession soon dispelled a lot of our fears. On our arrival we were met with a tour of the boat, complete with champagne chilling on the counter and a fridge full of essentials. The boat was spotless, decorated with great attention to detail, marine themed all the way- blue/white decor from carpets to curtains, marine table mats and a rope candle holder, to name but a few. It was definitely five star boating, dressing gown and slippers for all included. Within a few hours we were hooked! As your friend Ciaran said “you get an opportunity to see Ireland from a different perspective”. Our time on the river was a complete chill out and just the kind of holiday we needed. You also made our daughter Emily feel so at home on board with DVDs and her pressie of a little teddy (now named Banyan!). so here’s to the next time! (never thought we’d hear ourselfs say that!) We will be singing your praises hear in the South East!
We are just back from a wounderful and relaxing week travelling along The Shannon on The Galileo. We would like to thank Fergus for having the boat prepared beyond expecations with everything we could possible need for our trip. Of course we have to mention Dave’s fantastic instruction. By the time he was finished we felt totally comfortable heading away on our own, for our first family experience. Dave and Fergus gave us great tips for a route direction and excellent tips for restaurants along the way. Their service was second to none and were on the end of the phone at any time if needed (although with their prep it wasn’t needed ). We would highly recommend Pleasure Cruisers and we would even more highly recommend a truly relaxing and different view of Ireland along The Shannon. Thanks a million Fergus & Dave
Just a short note to thank you for making our week on The Shannon such a memorable one. From your handling of our booking in such a personal mannor to the welcome we received on arrival in Roosky, you left no stone un-turned. The boat exceeded all our expectations, fitted out to an exceptionally high standard, and was perfectly equipped for two adults and three teenagers. The little touches ie bottle of wine, perfumes and toiletries all added to setting the tone for a great week. This along with the time you both spent with us prior to handing over the boat, giving us expert tuition on handling and managing the boat, is the difference between going with a corporate letting and a private rental. Both Fergal and I would have no hesitation in recommending Pleasure Cruisers and we look forward to our next trip with you. Thanks again.
Hi Fergus & Dave, just wanted to say a quick thank you to you both for your excelent instruction and guidance on our first ever cruise. Our boat trip was exciting and relaxing at the same time. We hadn’t a clue about boats really but you gave us loads of confidence to go it alone. The boat was easy to manage and had everything we needed. Hope to book you again for our next adventure. Thanks again, Carrie and Terry.
Me and my now husband decided to rent a boat on the Shannon for our honeymoon at the start of June and I couldn’t recommend it highly enough. After all the rushing around and madness of the wedding it was one of the most relaxing holidays we’ve ever taken. Dave & Fergus – from my first contact with them via email a few week ago have been so helpfull, professional and made sure we had a really special and enjoyable holiday. They had chocolates, roses and a bottle of bubbly waiting for us on the boat and even booked us into a fabulous restaurant for our first night. All of their recommendations were great – food, pubs, parks & festivals. They gave us excellent training & a thorough run through of how to manoeuvre the boat, work the lock, mooring etc. They also had the most competitive price of all the hire companise. We’d like to sincererly thank them both for a really unforgettable & brilliant holiday.
