Guest Book for Pleasure Cruisers Ireland
Please see below some guest book comments we have received over the years.
We just spent 5 amazing days on The Shannon, on The Galileo boat, the fishing was great, the advice that Dave and Fergus gave us on restaurants, pubs and places to see was just perfect, all and all a realy great holiday, thanks lads.
We are on the ferry on our way back to Sheffield after the best week on a boat ever. From the moment we first contacted them, Fergus and Dave have been fantastic in helping to make this such an enjoyable holiday. We chose Galileo for its different layout and the boat was well prepared and ready ahead of time for us to get aboard. A very welcome bottle of wine, range of toiletries, sun cream, tea, coffee, and washing up liquid was all there. Fergus had booked us in to a delightful bistro at Dromod for our first night and came with us to the mooring in a private marina. The following day Dave spent three hours with us and took us to the first lock on our journey north. During this time we learned all about operating the boat, places we could visit and restaurants and pubs we could eat at. All of Dave and Fergus’s recommendations were totally right for us and we had a series of great meals out. Dave’s boat handling tuition is second to none. We have a lot of boating and sailing experience but learned so much more from Dave and enjoyed our time all the more for it. There is so much more we could say but the over riding difference between this holiday and others we have been on in England and Scotland, is the level of customer service. Fergus and Dave could not have been more helpful and at no time did we feel we were renting a boat from a company – it was more like borrowing a boat from friends.
From start to finish it was one of the best holidays we have had.Dave & Fergus were so welcoming and could not have done enough to make our stay perfect
This is our 6th time to do the Shannon river and the 4th time to rent the Galleo boat. We love that boat, easy on and off, the thrusters and the uniqueness of the boat. Once you rent from Dave and Fergus you will never rent from a large company again. They take pride in their boats and give personal service. We will be back. Susan & Uwe
I have just returned from a week on the Shannon on the Camlin Boat and what a fantastic week it was. Both Fergus and Dave were so welcoming and provided an excellent service. The boat was in perfect condition with everything you could need onboard. The personal touches and bottle of wine was lovely. Dave provided excellent training on driving the boat, mooring and the locks and made sure we were confident before going out alone. We got advice from both Fergus and Dave on what route to take and us being foodies what restaurants are a must visit and we were not disappointed. I cannot recommend Pleasure Cruisers enough and no doubt we will be back on the Shannon soon. Thanks again Fergus and Dave ☺
My family and I just returned from three very relaxing days on the Shannon. Fergus and Dave of Pleasure Cruisers provide a top class 5 star service. They genuinely care about what they do and are focussed on ensuring you have an amazing holiday. The boat was impeccably clean and very well kitted out. Dave gave very thorough tuition on driving the boat, mooring and handling locks…he ensured all felt confident and comfortable before going it alone. Dave and Fergus were always on hand to make suggestions with regards to potential routes and nice places to eat along the way. If you are thinking about a boating trip along the Shannon….do it! You won’t be disappointed and booking your boat with Pleasure Cruisers is a must!!
What a well run excellent business! Chris and I rented out the Camlin at the end of June this year for three nights. The attention to detail was outstanding, everything you need is on the boat. We did a little food shop before getting on and I bought eggs, I boiled them on the two ring gas cooker and thought to myself”I wonder are there egg cups on board?” and sure enough they were in the press. We had a tv/dvd combi and if we didn’t have tv reception, which can happen in some areas, then we had a choice of dvd’s to watch instead. The boat was comfortable and a pleasure to use. We got great training from Dave who stayed with us until we got throught the first lock. Chris was trained at the driving and I was the rope person! Dave made sure we knew our jobs well and that we felt confident with the boat before he left us. Fergus had the boat excellently prepared for our arrival that first day and it was so lovely to see a bottle of wine and two glasses on the table waiting for us. We got advice from both Dave and Fergus as to what restaurants to visit in the area and we followed their advice to a ‘T’ and were delighted to have done so as we weren’t let down by any place. Dave and Fergus love their boats and provide an absolutely wonderful service to anyone who is lucky enough to find them. We will go back on the Shannon again and I have no doubt but it will be with Pleasure cruisers when we do. Thanks again Dave and Fergus. 🙂
August 15 Just returned home after a fantastic 4 night Shannon holiday. We can not recommend Pleasure Cruisers enough and hope to return again. Our boat was impeccable in every way and Fergus and Dave were so helpful and friendly and the little extras were all appreciated. Dave was so patient giving invaluable tuition on boat handling and took the time to make sure we were confident in all aspects of boat handling before handing over… again much appreciated. Roosky is a perfect base and we visited Lough Key, Carrick on Shannon Jamestown and Dromod. Again thanks to Fergus and Dave for all their great suggestions on where to eat. If you are planning a Shannon holiday we highly recommend Pleasure Cruisers. Red and Máirín
It’s hard to describe exactly how fabulous our recent cruise on the Galileo was. We were so relaxed getting off the boat after a week that we were almost horizontal. Emily and Scott loved being active crew members and we were all well trained by Dave in mooring and locks etc. before we were let off! The weather was as Irish weather is – mixed, but the service provided by Fergus and Dave was top-class. It is clear from the moment that you meet them that your holiday is important to them. This is a beautiful part of Ireland and is spectacular when experienced on a fine day, at a gentle pace from the waters of the Shannon. I would highly recommend Pleasure Cruises and hope that we get the opportunity to return to take another trip in the not too distant future. Thanks Fergus & Dave!
In August 2015, Jacinta, Heiner and me spent a wonderful week on the river Shannon. Fergus and David were extremely friendly, patient and helpful and did everything to make our stay really wonderful. The boat was great, but it was also the little details that made our stay so special: We found a bottle of wine as a welcoming gift and also some DVDs for a quite evening on board. Thanks for everything and very best regards from Berlin!
