The Barrow Princess will commence its daily river cruise service between New Ross to Waterford this week starting on Friday, March 18th.
Leaving from from New Ross marina each morning, a 90-minute cruise will bring passengers from New Ross down the river Barrow, taking in the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Bridge and the Barrow River Railway Swing Bridge among other landmarks.
As the Barrow Princess reaches Cheekpoint, it will then follow the river Suir west into Waterford city where passengers will disembark at the Clock Tower Marina. Passengers will return to the point of embarkation in New Ross via a bus service (included in the ticket price). Passengers can enjoy all the sights from an open-air upper deck or relax indoors in a cosy lounge.
This is a million pound plus project with about €800,000 invested to date by Declan Bates of the Three Sisters Cruise Company along with public funding from Wexford Local Development (WLD), Leader, Wexford County Council LCDC.
Three to four jobs will be created as the business rolls out over the coming year and footfall to the Greenway builds further with the opening of the South East Greenway.

The Barrow Princess will be on show St. Patrick’s Day by the quayside in Waterford from 10am to noon before departing for New Ross for public viewing at the dockside only from 2.45pm.
