“good time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

This is a nice clean well maintained boat that ply the only Fjord in Ireland. The staff are helpful and the food is good.

Nice 90 minutes spent looking at green mountains covered with mist and properties lined by stones in order to keep the sheep contained. Look for the few structures ( boat and towers built of stone at the mountain top.

“Beautiful Cruise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

This is an amazing cruise and a must-do experience and you'll wish it was a lot longer than 90 minutes. The scenery and landscape along the fjord is so breathtaking that you'll wish it wouldn't end.

Excellent value for the cost of admission and fabulous on-board food available for purchase is a real bonus. Book your tour online and you can add a tasty lunch (panini + soup) for only €4 more. The chowder was just to die for!

The crew is warm and friendly and they provide a great commentary during the out voyage, including some historical anecdotes and information about the geography of the area. On the way back, you can just sit back and enjoy the trip. Recommend the bow of the boat for the out journey and then enjoy lunch and some relaxation on one of the deck chairs for the return trip.

Great value, fabulous scenery, pleasant cruise!

“Beautiful scenery but expensive trip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Just went on this trip yesterday, beautiful scenery, clean boat but very expensive at 42 euro for myself and my husband, our 2 children were free, so I think very expensive. It was only a 90 minute trip, had soup and panini on board for 8 euro, soup very poor quality. Food not worth the money. Staff nice and friendly but overall too pricey.
