Viking Cruise Athlone
The Viking Knarr is the longest Viking ship in Ireland and the UK. In Athlone, you can step aboard the 21 metre long replica Viking ship and navigate the treacherous waters of the River Shannon. As you sail through the River Shannon, you can listen to tales of the Vikings, Highs Kings and the monks of Clonmacnoise.
The Viking Ship departs from the quayside near Athlone Castle 3-4 times a day (weather and water level depending). Visit the Viking Tours Ireland site today to find out more about their departure times, destinations and the Viking ship itself.

‘Fantastic Family Midweek Break’
"We did the Viking boat tour which is also a must if staying at the hotel, very interesting and informative and lovely views of the lake. The hotel staff were very friendly and efficient. We are already planning our next trip to the Hodson Bay.”
