Induction and local knowledge was brilliant from Timmy in Portumna. Could have got away a bit earlier on the first day. Very relaxing time on board for everybody on board.

Excellent care and attention from the staff at Portumna The boat was well maintained and comfortable. (We drew attention to minor faults). We will go again when the opportunity arises. Comfortable and easy to handle. Good access from outside control to quay when alongside, when short handed.

We are very pleased to learn you enjoyed your cruise on the Shannon with us and were satisfied with the customer service your received, and your boat.

We've always been happy with Emerald Star and always been happy with our boat. The staff have always been absolutely excellent, from booking to check in to check out. We've never had a hidden charge or an excessive fuel bill. They're just nice people to deal with. A very nice little boat for four guys. It's not the newest boat in the fleet but it's very reasonably priced and while cosy, not at all cramped. We took it up the Shannon Erne waterway and it was perfect where a larger boat would have been a little more unwieldy in the narrow confines of the canal. There's no tv, which is great as that's the first thing we stow away when we get aboard.
Dear Mr H,
Thank you for sharing your feedback, it is much appreciated. We are delighted to learn you enjoyed your cruise along the Shannon River and were satisfied with the customer service you received and your boat.
We have forwarded your positive feedback to the base team.
We hope to welcome you on board with us again soon.
Best wishes, The Emerald Star team

Easy to book our holiday on-line. Staff were very welcoming. It was my first time on a cruiser. Enjoyed the experience even though there was quite a good bit of rain. We learned a lot about wind direction and currents in our 4 short days on the water. Boat was comfortable but imagine it's a good few years old now. Sarah and Timmy along with Anita (?) were a pleasure to deal with in the Portumna office. The boat is rather old but did the job.

Check in very slow with only one staff member on desk. Shower / toilet area in admin building too small and not as clean as expected. Old boat, but very clean and no complaint overall.
