It is our 2nd time taking this harbour cruise & is an excellent way to see Kinsale Harbour. The trip lasts about 1 hour and has a commentary giving interning information about Kinsale. You get an exceptional view of Charles Fort from the sea. Great for families (we were a family of 6).

Excellent one hour cruise around harbour, took in Charles Fort and idyllic coves and beaches. We had beautiful weather so sitting on top deck with informative commentary and hot sunshine was a great way to find out about the history of Kinsale as a port and garrison town in times gone by. Would recommend.

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.
