Enjoyed the cruise north of Galway on the Corrib River. Tea and scones were good. Scenery and explanation pleasant. They did a demo of how to make Irish Coffee, and also a traditional Irish jig. Just north of downtown area - easy to get to - watch for buses!

We got lucky with the weather and were able to sit up on the open deck for the trip. It's quite a relaxing way to spend 90 minutes. The captain doubles as the tour guide, and he's entertaining and informative in equal measure. There is an onboard bar that serves alcoholic drinks, soft drinks and snacks. Well worth doing if...

Tour is about 90 minutes. We did the 12:30 pm tour. I booked online and just showed the confirming email with the booking number as we boarded. They sell drinks and some snacks onboard but not sandwiches. The narration was good and pointed out the various sites along the way. The ride was really smooth. We walked to Wood Quay... More

excellent guide and beautiful day on the lake. Worth it! David, the owner and guide is very knowledgable without being obnoxious about his vast knowledge of the area. I don't like guided tours, but wanted to get out on the lake and this was a great trip. We visited a very old Druid and early Christian site that is not... More

Had a great trip with family on the princess. The crew where great and very helpful. Bar was great and not a rip off in price. Parking for car was poor and carrying buggy up and down stairs wasn't bad. Overall would recommend and world come back.

Having previously done the hop on/off bus tour of Galway, this lacked things to look at and learn about in comparison. It's a very tranquil way to spend a few hours cruising on the MASSIVE Corrib. On the way back we were treated to a demonstration on how to make an award winning Irish coffee which was pretty cool....for the... More

Enjoyed the cruise. Very relaxing and a change from the city which is so busy in July! Interesting information given which even locals may not know regarding heritage. No Irish dancing on this trip which we had expected other than that would recommend it as a new way to discover the area.
