The views are spectacular and there are sand bars along the way and the seals were basking in the sun. On the way back the crewman started singing Irish songs which also included some for the...

I travelled on the waterbus at the weekend with a party of 28. The craic was great from we got on til we got off. We all had tea etc from the bar and nothing was any trouble for the man behind the bar, he didn't fluster once! The captain spoke to us all as he boarded and the man... More

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.
