Founded in 1983

CCBC has been introducing the sport of rowing to athletes of all ages for over 30 years. We are passionate about the sport, and are committed to sharing the values and benefits of rowing. We ask that all members familiarise themselves with our Club Rules.

Junior Rowing

Castleconnell Boat Club welcomes aspiring athletes from the ages of 12 and up. All members must be able to swim, and will take a swim test as part of health and safety protocols. Rowers compete according to age. Rowers can learn sculling and sweep rowing, and may find themselves in singles, doubles, pairs, quads or even 8’s.

Castleconnell Boat Club has recently extended its facilities, with a new boat shed allowing us to store and use more equipment. Our original boat house is now home to our ergometers (rowing machines) and a number of exercise bikes, as well as a small amount of strength and conditioning equipment, which is available to members under coaches supervision. In addition, indoor erg and bike classes are available.


Club Apparel

Castleconnell Boat Club is proud to have club gear available to order. At set times throughout the year, the club will place a bulk order, to enable members to get the best possible price. Coaches will let members know when orders are being placed, and notifications will go out on social media.


Castleconnell Boat Club is situated on the Shannon River and takes advantage of a beautiful stretch of water between O’Brien’s Bridge and World’s End. The club is open to members from 12 years and up. If you’re interested in learning how to row, get in touch!
