Leitrim Marina, boaters welcome (article at the IWAI forum)

Hi Fellow Boaters.

Just a quick note to let you know that boaters are welcome at the Leitrim Marina Hotel, located in the heart of Leitrim Village. My wife and I have been the owners of the Hotel since last August. As fellow boaters and members of IWAI since 2006, we understand the joys of boating and hope to ad to the enjoyment of travelling the North Shannon and Shannon/Erne waterway. Boats are welcome to moor overnight in our private marina, free of charge. We have room for 6 boats if mooring stern too. Bigger Boats often tie to the outside wall, for ease of mooring. There are also the original public moorings just the other side of the bridge. With a little advance planning we can cater for a larger flotilla with permission from the private berth owners. ….. read more  IWAI forum
