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 fabulous work appreciation day out on the river with Ross. A fun, informative day was had by us all. The amazing weather and the sighting of a mink/otter on the day was just a bonus. Highly recommend this experience.
