Share the Luck of the Irish, and save 15% on Ireland in 2022

10th March 2022

Le Boat is the No.1 provider of boating holidays on Europe and Canada's beautiful inland waterways, with the world’s largest fleet of over 900 houseboats, operating in nine countries across 17 regions. After a two-year hiatus on travel, everyone could finally do with the luck of the Irish - right?


With 160 km of waterways, the Shannon leads visitors through historic towns steeped in Celtic heritage, marked by the ruins of castles and monasteries in the surrounding area. To appreciate the green landscapes even more, take a cycle ride along gorgeous country trails, and then kick back in a pub with Irish brew. Le Boat is offering a 15% discount on all boats, valid on all departures in 2022 (not including 3-8 June), minimum 7 nights, offer ends March 31, 2022. For example, a seven-night self-catered cruise on the Shannon, starting and finishing at Le Boat’s base at Carrick-on-Shannon, on board the Caprice Boat sleeping up to six people, arriving March 28th, 2022, is priced from $1639 CAD per boat / $273 CAD pp. (Was $2059 CAD per boat, saving 15%). Flights and transfers extra.


There is no one clear answer for the origins of this age-old expression – there are questions of its origin stemming back to Celtic mythology. The Emerald Isle is home to many myths and legends with tales of mystical creatures roaming the land, and one of these is the legendary leprechaun. Often known to be a lucky symbol of Ireland, the leprechaun is a wee man in green who can be found at the end of a rainbow, guarding his pot of gold. Perhaps the phrase is related to this myth?
