Missed it on the last trip as they had closed for the winter just the day before so was sad because I just love this experience. The staff are lovely, the ease of getting on and off great and every time I visit Leenane I try to do the trip.

Beautiful area to take boat tour up the fjord. I would highly recommend it to see great views, experience how salmon are raised, and crew was informative/professional. Would return for another trip.

Recently took the noon tour of Killary Fjord. Twas a bit nippy so first enjoyed an Irish coffee whilst enjoying the scenery as we cruised along towards the Atlantic. When ordering lunch I strongly recommend the mussels. Be prepared for a bucket full of at least a dozen plus of the freshest, tastiest mussels harvested from the waters of the... More

A trip along Kilarry Fjord on the Connemara Lady is a great experience. The boat is comfortable and the commentary gives local colour. The option of local seafood and drinks on board was a lovely surprise and fabulous value. But it is the people as with so much in Connemara that make the trip special. The service in the bar...

What an amazing adventure the Killary Fjord Boat Tour was! We were fortunate to have lovely weather for our lunchtime cruise, so we made the most of it by sitting on the upper deck. Food and drink were available on board and there was nothing quite like sitting in the open air, looking at stunning scenery and sipping an Irish... More

We travelled on the 12.30pm sailing and I have to say the whole thing was excellent. The boat itself was very nice, and the trip was very professionally run. The scenery was amazing and made more interesting by the very informative commentary that was given. The staff were friendly and helpful and they even allowed me to take our dog... More

This was a nice 90 minute excursion on the water taking in all of the scenery in Ireland's only fjord. We didn't have a sunny day and it had actually rained heavily right up until our departure but the bonus were the numerous waterfalls cascading down the mountainside. If you are on a whirlwind tour of Ireland like we were,... More

We had a group of 55 people (family & friends) and we pre-booked this tour with lunch. The views were amazing and even tho it was a bit foggy we still had great views. If you listen, there is a great narrative that played throughout the tour. We had such a large group that it was a bit hard to... More
