Guest Book for Pleasure Cruisers Ireland
Please see below some guest book comments we have received over the years.
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.
We are a Dutch family with two kids (of 12 and 14) who spent last week cruising the Shannon on the Galileo boat. What a great week we had! Due to airplane problems from A’dam into Dublin we arrived very late by bus (11PM!) but Dave & Fergus were picking us up at the bus station to bring us to the boat. In the boat fridge were some beers, soda, chips and next morning breakfast. Can you believe such service level, we were amazed and very pleased as you can imagine. The boat was nice, big enough for us and had all necessary facilities on board. We cooked a few nights on the boat which went perfectly well. The Shannon was really nice – quiet, beautiful nature with some small villages along the route. One of the min features for us was the Lough Key nature and adventure park with a number of great attractions for the kids (Zipit climbing!). We very much recommend you to book your Shannon River boat trip through Pleasure Cruisers, these guys are the best hosts you can imagine!
Four of us recently spent an enchanting week, cruising on the Shannon. Dave & Fergus had the boat ready, spotlessly clean, engine purring like a sewing machine, and fitted with every conceivable item. Flat-screen TV, (vital during Wimbledon and the World Cup), charts, binoculars, goodies of every description, including lotions and potions were discovered, the quality of which would do justice to a four star hotel. If anyone wants to spend an idyllic week, in a beautiful part of Europe, in luxurious surroundings, then do what we will be doing again : book yourself a little bit of Heaven on board one of Pleasurecruisers boats. Dave & Fergus will look after you and you will not be disappointed. Jim & Siobhan, Chandler’s Ford, Hampshire, U.K.
In der Tat, nichts für Junggesellenabschiede oder Sauftouren. Dafür ist vermutlich Dave & Fergus ihre Bootsflotte zu schade. Aber für alle anderen genau die richtige Adresse! Das Boot (Broom 29) war tiptop in Schuss und beide “Jungs” haben sich sehr bemüht aus blutigen Anfängern mit viel Geduld und Einfühlungsvermögen in kürzester Zeit professionelle Skipper zu machen. 😉 Vor allem ist es sehr beruhigend, wenn man weiß, dass bei Problemen jederzeit jemand zur Stelle ist. Die sechs Tage auf dem Shannon haben sehr viel Spaß gemacht und bleiben uns sicher noch sehr lange in Erinnerung. Oder in wenigen Worten: Der perfekte Ort für einen Heiratsantrag!… 😉 Viele Grüße, Arno
(Pleasure Cruisers for sure is not the right choice for stag parties or for a booz-cruise. But in any case it fits perfect for people who like to enjoy the individual support and service of two nice guys. They almost managed to promote us from complete beginners to professional skippers. The cruising days on the shannon provided a lot of fun and we will always remember them when we are back home and watch the pictures we took. Worth to mention that this was the perfect location for a marriage proposal!… 😉 )
Our annual week on the Shannon was once again a real pleasure.We took my sister and her husband who travelled from the UK with us.They are still talking about how much they enjoyed the experience.We of course are now used to being spoiled by the first class service provided by Dave and Fergus.I highly recommend pleasure cruisers if you are thinking of a boating holiday on the Shannon.From the spotless clean boats,to the safe parking of your car ,all is seamless due to the professionalism of Dave and Fergus. Already looking forward to next year
