Nice tour plenty of interaction
Jul. 2021
The captain was a lovely chap, plenty of talking and interacting with the customers but the boat was extremely hot and uncomfortable in the good weather but for the price it wasn't unexpected.

Jun. 2021
A lovely hour’s cruise around Lough Leane. Lovely views and hugely informative commentary. The geology, the history, the flora, the fauna - all touched on with warmth and expertise. We were lucky enough to spot a white-tailed eagle which was a real treat. It’s a very relaxing way to take in the sights that surround the lough and you learn as you do it. Highly recommended!

Thank you for posting a great review, we are delighted you enjoyed your lake cruise with us on board The Lily of Killarney.

Great Lake Cruise with Local History
Sep. 2019
Of the two boats/operations docked for lake cruises this one appeared to be the superior of the two! The guide was extremely informative and personable. The day we went out was windy and rainy; however, the cruise was still well worth it.
