A very relaxing way to have a little down time on a trip heavy with walking and buses! The main group rode on top and enjoyed the breeze and the tour guide I (and a few other parents) enjoyed the interior cabin - very relaxing

This is a great way to take a break from walking the lovely little streets of Kinsale. Sit back, listen to the commentary and admire. Tea/coffee available to purchase on board plus cosy blankets if required. An open top deck for those who love the wind in their hair and the warm sun on your face. 12.50 euro for adults.

This was a great way to spend a hour out on a small boat touring the harbor. We were able to relax and see the sights along the coast, as well as the other boats sitting in the harbor. Loved it!!

Good way to see the fishing town. Luckily the weather wasn't bad during the tour. The tour is roughly an hour. Even better if you are in a group. The pier itself is very nice with the beautiful kinsale landscape in the backdrop.

The Harbour Cruises are a great and relatively affordable way to spend an hour on the sea. The boat is well equipped, spacious and offers both indoor and outdoor seating

If you go during the week child goes free with adult .Adult €12.50 with a family rate if you have younger kids . Unfortunately the weather was not great but the cosy blankets on the boat were greatly appreciated. A prerecorded commentary is provided outlining the history and points of interest. Great views of Scilly, Charles Fort , James Fort... More

A beautiful way to see Kinsale and Fort Charles. It was informative and the classical music was a nice touch! I highly recommend this!

Again the weather did not cooperate but this boat has enclosed seating and outdoor seating. They also offered free tea and coffee which helped to warm us up. Even in bad weather the trip offered lovely views. We had a "hen party" on board so it was difficult to hear the narration.

This is a cheap way to spend an hour, coasting along just admiring Kinsale from a different perspective, even though the wind was cold, you are provided with a blanket to keep you warm, we enjoyed the commentary and all in all a worthwhile tour
