"Upon meeting Pearse, it was like meeting an old friend that we didn’t know we had. He was extremely knowledgeable and gracious"

A little about your guide...

Pearse Connell

I was born in Athlone beside the River Shannon & have spent all my life exploring and sharing the river- its beauty, its tranquility, and its Celtic history with my family. From an early age, I have explored the many islands on Lough Ree, camping, fishing, and sailing.
