About Boyne Boats Adventure
Paddle the Route Travelled by Stone Age Farmers with a Legendary Boat Builder Boyne River | Adventure | Nature | Mythology | Battle of the Boyne | Artisan Food | Game of Thrones According to ancient legend, the Boyne River was created by the Celtic queen and goddess Boann who symbolises water, fertility, and inspiration. The legend gives an insight into the serene beauty of this ancient river that has lured visitors ever since Stone Age farmers settled in the Boyne Valley. More than 6,000 years ago, these farmers created the burial tombs of Brú Na Bóinne along the Boyne River bend. Through Boyne Boats, the mythology of the past brings us to the mythology of the present because Ross Kenny (founder of Boyne Boats) is a well-known boat builder who featured in and supplied the boats for the hugely successful Game of Thrones series. In fact, the skilfully hand-crafted, traditional Irish currachs used by Ross in Game of Thrones are used by Ross in the Boyne Boats experience too.

We had a wonderful day on the Boyne Canal and River. A different perspective on the Boyne valley county side as we rowed along. Our friendly Guide Ross sharing both historical and topical insight on our voyage. Delicious artisan grazing box on the river was enjoyed by all. A great family day out.

Fabulous morning on The Boyne! Our host Ross was fantastic...full of local knowledge and very chatty and friendly. Plenty of history without it feeling like a history lesson! We are locals, only living 5 mins away and was great to experience what's on our doorstep. We walk the route most weekends so was lovely to see the area from a different perspective! We had 2 young kids (3 & 4) who loved it. Would 100% recommend this trip.

We had a great time on the canal with Ross. It was relaxing and hands-on, but not strenuous. My daughter loved it. Ross is a great guide with excellent local knowledge and stories. I highly recommend this tour for families. It's a great change of pace if your kids are tired of all the typical tourist sites.
