“group cruise in October”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

I took a group of active senior citizens on a cruise of killary harbour on Oct 1st. After an almost two hour journey there, we received a very warm welcome on board. I had pre booked tea/coffee and scones which were served shortly after departure. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The commentary was clear & very interesting. If the weather permits I would recommend spending some time up top on deck to really appreciate the scenery. Bring something warm and windproof. Most of all just sit back and enjoy!

“Excellent Cruise of Killary Fjord between Counties Galway & Mayo”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

My husband and I took the Killary Harbor Cruise on the Connemara Lady on October 13th as part of our "Jewels of Ireland" Vacation with CIE Tours. The 90-minute cruise was top-notch. The views of Killary Fjord were spectacular as was all of Ireland. The narrative during the cruise was very informative. Interesting information was shared regarding the formation of the area as well as the mussell beds, salmon farming and lazy potato beds. We would highly recommend this trip.

“Nature at its best”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

The boat cruise was calm and the narration informative. The staff was helpful and friendly. I did not eat but the dining room looked very inviting. If you're dressed warmly, stay on deck as I did and get the full benefit of the magnificent majesty of the Fjord and surrounding scenery. The salmon farming and fish beds provide interesting facts about the diversity of industry in Ireland.

“A great trip on Ireland's only fjord”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

This is a 1.5 hour leisurely trip along most of Killary harbour. The boat is comfortable and, as the fjord has mountains on both sides the water is calm with little risk of seasickness. The commentary, which covers the geography, history and mythology of Killary Harbour and its surrounds is very good. There is food and drink available on board at reasonable prices. The cruise doesn't operate from the beginning of November through the winter months
