We love kinsale for starters. we were lucky enough to arrive on the hottest day on the week and it was so scenic. For €12 the boat trip was a bargain and although we queued in enough time the boat had to refuel and as the fuel truck arrived it split the queue and we lost are place. Even with... More

We recently stayed in Kinsale and decided to take the harbor cruise. It was great! The staff were friendly, and the refreshments were great, with free coffee or tea and beer and wine available for purchase, and it was super affordable. It was such a nice way to spend an hour in the afternoon. I would recommend it to anyone... More

Late April trip in the harbour; Best 12 Euros for value for money. Great day. If you're in Cork; go to Kinsale; if you're in Kinsale; go on the cruise.

We took a trip out around Kinsale Harbour as part of our camping holiday in September. Really enjoyed it and so did our 3 year old. Really friendly and helpful staff. Can highly recommend this trip to anyone when visiting Kinsale.

A great overview of the Kinsale area. You just show up and the stand by the street in front of the boat on the harbor. Refreshments on sale on board. The tour in only about 30 minutes long, but very comfortable and interesting.

We took this cruise tour this afternoon- weather was gorgeous and it was a lovely way to pass an hour. Tours today were at 12pm, 2pm, 3pm and 5pm. They were oversubscribed at 12 so we came back at 2pm and we were 20 mins early and it sold out by a quarter to so early arrival at the dock... More

We brought our two children on the cruise age 1 and 3 and we all loved it. Staff were extremely helpful and polite and we got to see kinsale harbour in all it's glory. Well worth the 12.50 per adult. Children were free which is great. Highly recommended.

The harbour cruise was interesting and the scenery great. Great to cruise around with lots of smaller sailing craft. Very pleasant operators and a lovely water experience. Time passed so quickly and took great photos of the forts. Would recommend this cruise. Was a highlight of my day in kinsale.

What beautiful views of Kinsale from the boat. It was so relaxing to sit back and enjoy it all. We were up on the top deck as the weather allowed us to!Blankets were provided if it was cold. There was lovely background music and refreshments on board. All that was needed for the voyage! The trip was an hour but... More
