Guest Book for Pleasure Cruisers Ireland
Please see below some guest book comments we have received over the years.
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!
Dave and Fergus, your service was great and we enjoyed a wonderfull week on the Shannon. Thanks for that and best regards Heiner
A huge shout out to Dave and Fergus for ensuring our trip with “Pleasure Cruisers” was so enjoyable. It is a joy to deal with people who put so much effort into making sure from start to finish that the experience will be memorable. The attention to safety and making sure we were comfortable with every aspect of handling the boat was exceptional. The boat was spotless and some little touches that made it feel more like we were in a “Hotel” was so nice. Thank you both so much for everything and we will certainly recommend you to our friends and family. We are already planning out next trip so until we meet again “Cheers”.
We are just back from a week on the Shannon in the lovely Gaileo boat which we hired from Dave and Fergus. The boat is decked out with everything you need including a lovely bottle of complimentary vino and lots of glasses!! The TV/DVD player and radio/CD player was a godsend given the poor weather last week. They helped to keep us all occupied in the evenings!! Both Dave and Fergus provide a very personal and friendly service and are very competitive vis a vis the larger boat hire companies.We will definitely use them again and we So we would highly recommend a holiday on the Shannon with Dave and Fergus…despite the rainy weather! Thanks again and continued success with your business.
We hired our boat from Fergus & Dave and were extremely pleased with the service they provided. Dave gave us a masterclass on the handling of the boat and Fergus was so kind, he collected us in Carrick-on-Shannon and took us to the Cottage Restaurant where we enjoyed a beautiful meal. The weather was not good when we were on the Shannon, but we had a great holiday due to the professionalism and thoroughness of Fergus & Dave. Thank you. We will be back again next year.
We had a lot of experience on the southern part of the Shannon thru friends and boat hire. But Lough Key has stolen our hearts. It’s a beautiful place. We were introduced by Dave and Fergus. These two guys are wonderful in their attention to detail and their massive support to ensure you know the boat, how it works and how to get the best from it. Bigger companies don’t do this, you are safe and happy with Fergus and Dave. Thank you both so much.
Dave and Fergus love cruising and want others to enjoy it as much as they do; which is why renting a boat through “pleasure cruisers” is such a pleasant and fun experience. They have thought of all the small comforts one would need in a home away from home. Having rented from the bigger companies and now them, we would only go back to them. Thanks guys for a memorable trip!
A lovely week cruising on the Shannon with our two girls (aged 9 and 11) made all the better by the attention to detail and exemplary customer service provided by Fergus and Dave. As this was our first experience cruising the extra effort they made to put us at our ease and ensure we were confident with the boat (Haines 31) before setting off was greatly appreciated – as were their recommendations for where to visit and where to eat. I doubt we would have experienced the same level of attention from larger cruiser companies. Highly recommended whether your a first timer or a veteran of cruising on the Shannon.
We’ll definitely be back to Pleasure Cruisers. Dave and Fergus couldn’t have been more helpful and pleasant to deal with. Right from the moment we enquired about the boat to when we reluctantly handed it back in Roosky after a magical week on the Shannon and up the Boyle river. We felt they truly cared about their customers and their boats. My wife, my 2 girls (10 and 11) and I visit from Australia each year and this is by far the best rental experience we have ever had. In fact it felt more like paying some money to friends to use their boat for the week. However, unlike a lot of friends, Dave and Fergus presented the boat spotlessly clean with bed sheets turned down, and a warm smile to greet us. We even learned new skills at the hands of Dave’s excellent and careful introduction to the boat (Haines 31, 6 berth). Forget the rest. If you like boating, hail rain or shine you’ll have a good time with pleasure cruisers. We’ll be back.
