Shannon River Online Boat Rental Website

The people at Shannon River needed a website to display information on tourism on the Shannon River, and most importantly on the boats available to rent on the river. As prices change frequently during the year, the website had to display the correct rental price for boats depending on the time of year and duration. As things change they needed update all aspects of the website, to add new boats and change prices every year.

Web Site Front End Requirements

  • Allow the customer to fill in a form and display a list of boats with the correct prices for the time of year and duration.
  • Allow the customer to choose a boat from the list for more information, then add extras for the booking.
