The captain went table to table at the Ashford Castle breakfast buffet telling folks about the boat trip. We bought in and are glad we did. Captain Patrick is 5th generation to live in their home on property that was once part of the Guinness holiday estate. The ride was informative and there were great photo ops of the castle from the water. A little pricey at 20€ a piece for an hour but one has to consider: petrol, insurance, depreciation, etc. I would do it over again.
