Great way to see Kinsale Harbour and a fun afternoon, weather was beautiful which helped. Clear and concise safety instructions from the owner who was very friendly and welcoming. We hired the boat for 2 hours which was the perfect amount of time to be able to go out to sea then back around past the harbour and up the... More

I hired out a boat from Kinsale Boat Hire recently and had a wonderful time out! We hired the boat for 2 hours (which went very quickly) and it was easy to use, with great instructions and guidance from the owner as well a safety briefing which was clear, easy to understand and he didn't overload us with information. We... More

What a fantastic way to spend two hours! Very patient with a nervous member of our group, and all the instructions were clear, concise and easy to follow. Brilliant fun, so relaxing and thoroughly enjoyed by all. Already planning next trip!!!

We have never driven a motorboat before, but after a short light-hearted demonstration we were on our way. 1.5hrs was the shortest hire period. Price was reasonable, nice way to see the sights from harbour to the sea and up the river. Recommend to others as was a highlight of our sunny day in kinsale.

On a whim we decided to rent a small boat for 90mins at a very reasonable rate. This was a great idea, the boat was so easy to drive, the instructions very easy to follow. Amazing views around the harbour and I would recommend this as a great way to spend an afternoon. Oh I'd stay out longer next time!

I pre booked our boat with Daragh (the owner) a few days beforehand. No deposit was needed Upon arrival, he went through a clear, concise yet detailed set of instructions for our trip - all the safety guidelines are thoroughly explained. Luckily, our timing was ideal and Daragh upgraded our boat. Driving the boat is excellent fun. Fortunately, the weather... More
