Rode out on the Lady Breda to single the famous Dingle Bay dolphin. It's a one hour trip and there is a bathroom on this ship. We didn't use it so I can not comment further. It was a gorjus sunny day, and the captain did a terrific job of piloting the boat so there was just enough splash for... More

The five of us (Mom, Dad, 10-year old, Aunt and Grandmother) had a great time out on the Eco tour trip. The ride is beautiful - great way to see the area from a different perspective, and the outer Blasket Islands are some stunning scenery. The guide was great - lots of interesting stories about the history of the region.... More

We have been visiting the dingle peninsula every year for the last ten years with our children. We had, we thought, tried most activities and have had varying levels of enthusiasm from our three very different children. The Eco Tour on the Lady Breda was the first completely unanimous 10/10 we have had. Even my 13yr old (for whom everything... More

We had a wonderful time. Conor, Rosin, Eoin, Cathal and myself. We left Dingle Bay at 12 noon and seen Fungi the dolphin. It was amazing. We there listened the lovely Julie who was our commentator for the boat trip. Who explained the history and wildlife geology of the Dingle pennisula. We passed by the ring forts which date back...

The Blaskets - a magical place. We did the eco-trip this year on the Lady Breda which was a bit spoilt by the female guide shouting into the tannoy for most of the trip. The commentary was lost on us as it was so loud and distorted that we couldn't understand what was being said (shouted). Last year's trip to... More

We took a private boat tour with Skipper Michael on Emma Delia as a family group (5 adults, 3 kids & 1 dog!). We got to see Fungie, caught some mackerel and saw some of the coast all within an hour! If you can it is definitely worth the money and Mike was great at making sure we had a... More

We took two trips with this company last week. A short one on Monday to see Fungie the dolphin and a longer one on Thursday to visit the Great Blasket Island. On both occasions our reception in the booking office was welcoming and informative (unlike a nearby company where it was assumed we knew everything in advance.) The guides on... More

We travelled to the Great Blasket Island this weekend with two young kids. We were camping, so we had to bring a tonne of stuff with us. I was grateful to how helpful the crew of the Lady Breda were in helping us load on and off all the gear, all with a smile, they couldn't do enough to help... More

Booked and reserved two boats by phone for a stag. No hassle, left on time, caught seven or so species, saw Fungi, and back on time. Both Captains helped fillet and we brought our fish over to John Benny's pub for dinner. Absolutely the best fishing trip I've been on, everything was problem free, and all 18 had a great... More
