Very poor experience. The business owner gave the wrong departure time, the boat left the harbour before a dad and his 8 year old boy arrived on time. Tears and disappointment the result. No customer service. Not worth the risk.

KinsaleAngling, Manager at Kinsale Deep Sea Angling, responded to this reviewResponded 23 August 2016

The skipper left early believing all the days fares had arrived. We sincerely regret that the last two persons were not missed. The "No customer service" comment is very unfair as Endo was offered compensation with our apologies for this oversight.
