Limerick Strand Hotel Riverfest on the Shannon will feature action packed water based activities and events throughout Riverfest 2018.
Among the major new attractions this year will be the first ever visit to Ireland by the Seabreacher Shark – a dare-devil ride all the way from Queenstown, New Zealand an 18ft ‘shark-craft’ that can travel at speeds of up to 80km per hour, soar 18ft high out of the water, dip up to 5ft under the water, do side rolls and doughnuts.
The water based activities for the Limerick Strand Hotel Riverfest on the Shannon will also involve a free Double Zipwire across the Shannon, Water Zorbing, Kayaking, and a social swim that will have hundreds getting a different perspective of the great river.
