Really enjoyed every minute of this 1 hour lake cruise with my 2 daughters. The captain made us feel so welcome and share his knowledge of the lakes in such a friendly and fun manner. We were even enough lucky to see an eagle in flight. We would recommend this cruise for any age.

A lovely relaxing hour to spend on the lakes of killarney .. The captain Frank and his assistant were really friendly and very informative about the area .. I've been on some tours where the guide doesn't stop talking and it takes away from the experiance but here you got plenty time to relax and chill out and still get plenty of information without the overkill ..
The boat is really clean ,bright and spacious and infection control and safety can be seen to be taken very seriously ...extremely comfortable and large windows which give a great view at all times ... I would highly recommend 10 /10 .. well worth it

This is without doubt a fantastic tour. The boat captain was excellent. His knowledge of the area was brilliant. The cost of the trip was 12 Euro and with every cent. I would recommend this tour to everyone.

It was the best boat trip I have made in my whole life! The boat driver was very informative and the tour was very interesting! He was even very kind to pick us from our hotel and drop us off. If I will ever be to Killarney again I will definitely do this trip again!
