Carrick-on-Shannon may be known to culture buffs as a remaining Iron Age fortification and the Gateway to the Shannon-Erne Waterway but Leitrim’s main county town attracts students for other reasons...
The legend has it that when the full moon is out, students will suffer immense summer withdrawal, reeling from their sixth year trip to Magaluf. Weary eyed and eager to revisit their summer escapades, they’ll awaken with a paddle in one hand and a naggin in the other, ready to sample Ireland’s take on the ever popular booze cruise. If you want to see what an Irish booze cruise looks like (hint:it’s not as sunny as Ibiza but it is equally as epic) then we can sort you out with various options. Twinned with the French town of Cesson-Sévigne, you can make Carrick-on-Shannon a rustic getaway, overlooking Ireland’s great riviera as you sip sauvignon. More than likely though, you will be playing beer pong and drunk jenga as your mate chats to the fresher they have had eyes on all semester. The booze cruise can be a great way to get properly acquainted with everyone in your course group. Well, there is nowhere to escape on a boat.
Carrick-on-Shannon is also a prime location for water sports of course. You can go kayaking, white water rafting and again get pulled down memory lane on the banana boats. There are also activities for any land bound college students, our easy group booking system means that attendees can customize their own trips. Activities on land include both competitive sports like segway games, bubble football and karting and the non-competitive like zip trails.
By night we line the bellies to recover from the jam-packed daytime activities or to prepare for any after hours events yet to come. You can choose from a number of cuisines like Indian and traditional before we provide you with exclusive VIP access to Carrick’s hot spots - if you aren’t already hitting it hard on the high tide.
Before you decide, you can browse some of our other options like Sligo, Westport or further afield in Waterford. If you are already sold on Carrick-on Shannon though, there is no need to deliberate further.

We deal with the rest and each attendee pays their own way and further personalizes their stay. It’s a piece of cake.
"Just want to thank UniTripper on behalf of the UCD Sub Aqua club. Your website and payment system was so handy - the committee didn't have to chase people for payment and to find out who was and wasn't going. I'll definitely be recommending Unitripper.com to the other Clubs & Socs"
