The top location for your Ireland Boating Holiday!

The land of saints and scholars also abounds with lakes and rivers. With the reopening of the Shannon Erne canal system the mighty Shannon river rejoined the Erne Lakeland forming once again the longest navigable waterway in Europe. An impressive choice of moorings and landing places await you along this 650km stretch of water.

Quivvy Marina

From our base at the recently constructed Quivvy Marina 8km outside Belturbet in County Cavan, we are perfectly located for you to commence your voyage of discovery. We are conveniently situated close to the start of the Shannon Erne waterway where it joins the island dotted Upper Lough Erne. Once you leave the marina the choice is yours.

Quivvy Marina is located just 2 hrs from Belfast airport and 2 hours from Dublin airport. The marina is 8Km from Belturbet on the Cavan Fermanagh border just off the main N3 Enniskillen to Dublin road. In Belturbet follow the signs for the Marina into the heart of the Irish countryside.
