We rented two boats from Kinsale Boat Hire on June 30th, having called in advance to reserve. The owner Daragh had the boats fueled and ready when we arrived and he made sure we understood all of the operational and safety requirements for renting the boats. It was a warm sunny afternoon and to have the freedom to roam the... More

Myself and a group of friends found ourselves wander around kinsale for an evening and decided it would be good fun to rent a boat. The staff were really friendly and incredibly helpfully the boat was very easy to drive and great fun! It was a really lovely way to see kinsale! I'd recommend it to everyone!

Fabulous trip out from the harbour then back up the river. Owner couldn't have been more helpful. We present a special challenge as one of our party is in a wheelchair. He was not the least bit fazed and even carried the chair for us. An hour and a half flew by pottering around on the Atlantic bay.

Decided on a boat trip around Kinsale last minute with my Girlfriend, but wanted something a bit more interesting than a standard Boat tour. Daragh's boat hire came very highly recommended so we rang ahead and a boat was awaiting us when we got to the marina. Daragh gave us a full and comprehensive operational and safety brief which left... More

Kinsale was one of our favorite villages on our whirlwind tour of Ireland. Darragh was great. We took a late afternoon boat out and loved every minute of it. Darragh was informative and full of great places to add to our travels. Our kids loved being out on the boat and seeing the shoreline from a new perspective. I highly... More

Motoring through the quiet harbor near sunset was a great addition to our Ireland adventure. The owner was very flexible with the time of our rental, and gave thorough instructions so that even one who had never been in a boat could do it comfortably. If you are wanting to see the town from the water, DO IT! This is... More

Were really treated to some lovely weather once we got out to sea. Darragh even let us take the boat a little earlier than we'd booked and we had a lovely afternoon cruising along the beautiful coastline. Although we own our own boat Darragh went through all the safety instructions and ensured that we knew exactly where everthing was and... More
