Lough Ree Access for all

Lough Ree is one of the premier angling venues in Ireland – renowned for its stocks of pike – many exceeding 9Kg (20lbs) in weight.  The provision of the Lough Ree Access For All boat will provide an adapted integrated water based experience for people with disabilities for the very first time – allowing access for up to 8 wheelchair users at the same time.


Access to the boat is via the bow of the vessel which lowers in a style akin to a small car ferry – thereby allowing the passengers to “roll-on” and “roll-off” in their own manner and without assistance needed from anybody else. The boat is the ONLY licensed vessel of its kind in Britain or Ireland for passenger travel of this nature and will provide daily sailings for people with disability from throughout Roscommon, Longford and throughout the country and abroad – offering activities such as angling, sightseeing and other excursions in all weathers.
