i would highly recommend this trip. It cost 20 euro per adult and 7 euro per child but you can get a family ticket. The trip is around 90 minutes and the views are nice especially the seal island. The man doing the commentating was very funny and witty. The sing song on the way back was great fun and... More

I was also with the hen party, Diarmuid and his crew are pleasant professional people who give one hundred percent from start to finish it was a lovely trip. I would thoroughly recommend the boat trip. It was such a pleasure meeting genuine lovely people. Thanks for a lovely afternoon. Mary Sweeney . London

Very comfortable boat and friendly crew,but at 20.00 euro each is overpriced. Ive been on a good few river boat cruises and this has been the dearest. Not worth the money. The kids enjoyed the sing song on the way back.

We had a good time. Even the seals said Hello :) One of the highlights of the small town of Donegal Town. We only can recommend for this price :)

This trip costs €20 and takes about hour 15 mins. There is a guided trip around Donegal bay which was interesting and it was great to see so many seals. On the way back to the quay the fun starts- there is a sing along and although I initially thought this sounded cringe worthy it was actually so, so much... More

This is the boat trip of all time. Along with lovely scenery and a great commentary the tour guide sings songs for the travellers on the way back into the Bay. Lovely touch and everyone really enjoyed it sang along. He even sang in German for a German tour on Board. Fantastic
