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

This was really good way to see Kinsale. They didn't charge for our 4yr old & we were offered complimentary tea or coffee upon boarding. We went on the 5pm cruise & the weather was glorious, we were very lucky with the weather. Commentary very good too

Lovely hour spent viewing the harbour as well as both star-shaped forts. The elevated deck affords an excellent view and the pace is leisurely. The information, well timed timed as the boat approached each one individually was good, but the music in between was far too loud. If you find you can't get on one cruise, you'll get priority to...

The boat tour was very nice...free coffee or tea on board and beer/wine for sale. Several seats inside the boat with little tables and many more up on the deck above. The view coming back up into the harbor is worth the price of admission. Crazy to think of the ships a couple hundred years ago rounding the bend and... More
