Title is misleading - coffee and a scone isn't my idea of brunch! More positive things. Guide/helmsman was friendly, careful about safety issues and informative about features around the lough. Could have had more input about the wildlife of the lough, especially concerning its importance in migration and breeding for birds. Overall we enjoyed the trip including the bouncy bits!... More

This is a brilliant experience and I would recommend it to anyone. The guide was very informative, we were amazed by the scenery and the sheer enjoyment of being on a boat on the open water of Strangford Lough. We felt safe at all times, enjoyed a lovely homemade scone and cup of tea on Augus Rock and had lots... More

I absolutely loved our brunch on a boat experience. I'd booked it for my husband as a gift and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. Such a different, fun & interesting way to spend a morning!

We took a boat trip on Strangford Lough. The guide was very helpful and informative and good fun too. We didn't know about this company before but would highly recommend them for a good value and good fun day out.

A highlight of our trip to Northern Ireland was our time at Winterfell. We had great fun trying to shoot arrows as surrogate members of the Stark clan. Unfortunately we never did fell that deer, but we did manage to shoot a few wildlings and hit the targets. Our informative guide William had worked with the actors on GOT and... More

What a beautiful area! Staff at clear sky are very friendly and helpful. I bought a gift voucher for my husband and was disappointed that what I booked, they no longer offer, so had to take another activity , turned out was pretty good fun.

We had booked a personal Game of Thrones archery session at Castle Ward this past August while my family was visiting Ireland. It was beyond anything we could have imagined! William was a fantastic host and we had a wonderful time. We were so thankful he was able to take the time to point out the other shooting locations from... More

We did the Game of Thrones Archery Experience at Castle Ward. It was worth every pound!!! We had SO much fun dressing up and acting our part as archers! And we actually did pretty good, with the help of the actual on set Game of Thrones Archery Master. He was a fantastic person and he made it a time we'll... More

I booked the Sea Safari as an unusual way to show the Lough to friends visiting from France. I think they'll be talking about it for years! Nuala provided me with all the information beforehand, and Andy was a fantastic guide on the day ensuring that we had both a fun-filled and informative tour: beautiful scenery, loads of photo opportunities...
