All weathers; boat design ensures no sea-sickness (money back guarantee). Accessible to all, including wheelchairs and pushchairs; cafe and full bar on board. Enjoy a light lunch or an Irish coffee as you sail past spectacular landscapes from a unique vantage point - and you may well see dolphins, which often come up to accompany the boat for a time.

We were fortunate to be on board on a sunny day to enjoy beautiful views of Killary Harbour, Leenane Hill and the Mweelrea mountains on the north shore.

Worth it for the fascinating commentary covering the history and geography of the surrounding area.

Very good food available on board including Killary mussels.

Drove an hour from roundstone with two very young children in the car to catch the 2.30 boat. We arrived at 2.05 only to see the boat leaving. The person at the ticket office told us it was hired privately but to come back tomorrow. We checked the website before we left where the times were clearly listed. It was a day wasted out of our holiday and my 3 year old was very disappointed. Why have a website and not include important updates like a sailing being cancelled?

Dear Anna,

We are sorry that you and your family were disappointed .
Due to a limited amount of spaces onboard we would always advise customers to book in advance over the phone or online to avoid disappointment. From time to time the boat does sell out and unfortunately the 14:30 sailing on the day you came out was fully booked.

I have emailed you separately and hopefully will see you at another time. If you would like to talk to me directly please do not hesitate to contact me on 091-566736.

Yours Sincerely
Alex Goor
General Manager

Went on the trip although it was raining. But you can stay inside and watch the landscape passing by through the big windows. The bar has tea/coffee for reasonable prices

Had a great experience, even in the typical irish rain the views were still amazing. And I would highly recommend the baileys hot chocolates. Crew were very friendly.
