I must say, this was the best craic I've had in a very long time. Fantastic scenery, fantastic company, learnt a lot of new facts and the guy running the trip (whose name I forgot to get) was pure brilliant. I'd highly recommend this to everyone.

We took the boat tour from Ross Castle to Lord Brandon’s cottage on the bank holiday Monday! Dux was a superb guide from start to finish. He was very accommodating to everyone and we felt totally safe on board his boat. His knowledge of the lakes as well as the history of Killarney is phenomenal, that along with his wit and humour kept us highly entertained throughout. We will certainly make it an annual outing. Would highly recommend!!

We wanted to visit the area of the Gap of Dunloe but were looking for an alternative to the 56km-cycle from and back to Killarney. That's when Derry in the bike rental on College St. recommended us to go on this amazing boat trip! After enquiring by email, Niall kindly instructed us to meet Dermot on the pier in front of Ross Castle at 10:30am. We had the privilege of taking this tour with Dermot, who told us so much about the area, its historical facts and some other curiosities. He has the charm of the Irish and entertained us throughout this hour-and-a-half journey. You get on a small boat that allows you to be in close contact with the water and makes it a calm and enjoyable ride -you can take your bikes with you as well! We got off on Lord Brandon's Cottage and made our way towards the amazing Gap of Dunloe cycling. Definitely the best option to visit this area if you're not ready to cycle 56km! Go on the boat trip, you won't regret it.
