    We chose to walk from Kinsale to Charles Fort and was a good hike so keep that in mind. The history in the fort is awesome and the staff on hand explained things very well. Fantastic views from many point in the fort so lots of picture opportunities. Highly recommend.

    This is a very scenic place and is well worth a visit for the views alone. For anyone with a shipwreck or Cunard interest a visit is a must.

    A little bit hard to find, walked out to it. Well worth the walk as great view of the sea and even though ruins was still very mysterious.
    Close to the lovely beach.

    Rented the deluxe touring package from Ruth for a week long solo ride along the WAW from Kinsale to Killarney. She made the entire process a breeze. Timely communication, drop off and pick up service and great equipment. Will definitely rent from her again

    So glad we did this tour!! We didn't have Don or Barry, we had David and he was WONDERFUL! Dad jokes and all! We would have missed so much about the history of Kinsale and of Ireland if we skipped this tour! Easy walk through the streets and David was a delight.

    The experience was very entertaining way to past an hour, the men were funny and great with kids. The tour was uphill but they were slow so kids could keep up had little jump scares throughout. Wonderful trip.

    we chartered a 40 ft boat to sail around West Cork for a week. We have a fair bit of saling experience in dinghies , and a little in cruisers, so we hired a skipper, Eoin for the week . The boat was well used but comfortable. The weather was mixed, the last day rained and blew out, but overall we had great sailing conditions and had a brilliant holiday. The skipper added a fair bit to the price but Eoin was terrific, highly competent and very easy to get on with, and got everyone involved. It reduced the stress levels a lot, he knew the area and the anchorages well and planned a great itinerary. Barry in the office was really helpful and gave one of the family a lift back from west cork. I would highly recommend it, and would do it again. ( bring your own foul weather gear if you can)

    Very nice seafood. Tried lobster and was delicious. Also tasted a couple of interesting vegetarian options and they were good. A short drive from down town.

    Very enjoyable boat trip around the harbour, takes about 50 minutes or so, the weather was perfect. My family were visiting walking the steps of our ancestors.
    The only issue I have is embarking from the boat was a steep drop to the ground as I'm70s it was frightening and I was in great pain in my hip
    I Hope this can be rectified .

    Cannot say enough that the staff are so nice!
    The booking is hassle free and the staff cater to all kinds of experience, for my group the staff were chatty but let us off to do our own thing but we overheard them doing full on lessons with a family! Whatever is needed by the client.
    On our most recent booking with the group a staff member was even looking out for swimmers, offering assistance even though they were not patrons.
    Just overall great day out with this crowd!
