What attracted us to this trip was that they could facilitate buggies on the boat. The weather wasnt great but it was a nice trip and good snacks. Would recommend while in Killaloe

Hello, there are two small steps down into the deck of the boat. You can see these if you take our virtual tour which is on Google Maps. Search for Killaloe River Cruises. Thank you.
