Step aboard for a 90 minute trip to enjoy uninterrupted views of the breathtaking scenery on the Killary - Ireland's only fjord. All weathers; boat design ensures no sea-sickness (money back guarantee). Accessible to all, including wheelchairs and pushchairs; cafe and full bar on board. Enjoy a light lunch or an Irish coffee as you sail past spectacular landscapes from a unique vantage point - and you may well see dolphins, which often come up to accompany the boat for a time.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

As you would expect in Ireland, weather was part sunny, part cloudy, and part raining. But that didn't dampen our spirits or the crews. We had a great time taking in the views as well as all the information the Captain and Crew provided. They were very friendly and happy to talk with us Americans. A couple of them actually joined us for a pint afterwards at Hamilton's. I would highly recommend a tour with this crew.

Fantastic boat ride along the fjord. Comfortable when in the rain, and delicious food and beverages. The skipper, Gordon, was very knowledgeable and filled us in on a lot of history and knowledge about the for and surrounding area. Highly recommend!

This was just a wonderful experience. Sean Keane was a pure gentleman & such a wonderful artist, absolutely fantastic.
The boat trip was also superb with such a beautiful setting & had the benefit also of an amazing sunset. Out on deck you got the feeling of being in a mystical & magical place, travelling through the mountains. This was better than Lake Como.

Though we didn’t see dolphins etc., this was a worthwhile trip. Staff were excellent, boat was clean and commentary was interesting. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed. Bring a hat and raincoat for the unpredictable weather.

A really wonderful experience for 90 minutes cruising up and down the beautiful surroundings.
The boat was clean and in great condition and the staff all very friendly.
The captain even let my daughter up to steer the boat and gave her a signed certificate.

The commentary explains the history of the area and points out all the main areas of interest on the trip. It is very informative.

We didn't eat or drink on the boat but there is a full catering service and the food looked decent.

Definitely worth adding this to your trip if touring the area

I was slightly unsure if I wanted to go on this due to suffering slight sea sickness but that all changed when I seen on their main website that there was no sea sickness guaranteed! We boarded and it was slightly busy but no overly busy! The journey was wonderful and although it was raining the scenery was beautiful! There is interesting info provided via a pa, there are members of staff on board that provide assistance if needed and are very friendly! I couldn't help but have a guinness or 2 on board! There are toilets available on board! Excellent journey and would do it again!
