I think I got this book in a book swap at a BT gathering. I love Emily Kimbrough's writing - always funny and what a group to go traveling with as she finds.

Kimbrough and a group of friends this time travel the Shannon River in Ireland on a chartered boat. The crew takes second place to the peculiarities of some of the passengers, and both fade against the Irish scenery and the attitude, summed up in the title, of the people they meet. In some ways, this book is just some of her earlier books--Floating Island, that covers a similar journey in France, for instance--but just as Ireland is not France, the books are not really the same.

I remember this to be a delightful story about a group of old friends taking a cruise on Ireland's River Shannon for two weeks. I enjoyed this writer's style, and it was a lovely picture of Ireland, quite a few years ago.
