Had booked a hen for a trip on the Corrib princess. Was not disappointed with entertainment or service. With complimentary glass of champagne for all in hen party and free for the Bride (of grps over 10), it is ideal to start of the party and celebrations. Weather not an issue as a table is reserved for the party. As there was also a tour group on board too we saw the Irish coffee demo and then joined in with The Siege of Ennis. All thoroughly enjoyed the trip and great as first intros to new in-laws. :) thank you to all the team.

Nice, enjoyable cruise along Clifden and the coast of Galway. They were hosting 2 hen-parties on the day we went for the cruise, so the boat was jam-packed. There was some commentary running in the background I think, couldn't hear it as it was too noisy. Towards the end of the trip, Roisin. a staff member demonstrates how to make Irish coffee and also teaches you some of the most peculiar Irish dance steps, bringing in volunteers from us passengers. That was fun too!

I have been on the corrib princess a few times. We went on a lovely sunny day and it was beautiful. Lovely surrounds and the staff on board were very kind and helpful. A woman called Roisin is the female champion of the world for making the best irish coffee and she does a little a demonstration onboard. Everyone enjoyed this and then she brought up a few people to teach them a few steps in irish dancing. It was very entertaining and I would recommend to anyone.

I highly recommend taking this river cruise if you are in the Galway area. The stretch of river that cruise down is really scenic. It's also very good value for money considering that the cruise lasts for 90 minutes. The audio guide points out and explains all the points of interest that you pass on the river and this was quite fascinating.

As boat cruises go, this was just OK at best. It was a hot day, the boat was slow and allowed for no breeze. The information seemed interesting enough for what is was, but it was difficult to hear because our cruise had to be given in both english and french. Every time the english was playing, it was impossible to hear over the rude french men standing near us who talked throughout every english description of the area. Then the french explanations would come on at 3 times the volume of the english. If I understood french, maybe I would know what the sparse sights along the river are. This was included in our coach tour of Ireland and I wish we had opted out of this boat cruise and chose to see more of the city of Galway.
