We were looking for something fun to do for a day, and I'm so glad we went with Corrib Cruises. The day was raining, so our tours were a little wet, but David was a fantastic tour guide. Entertaining and fun.

Corrib Cruises is a small family owned company. Both David and Patrick, who own the company, were an absolute pleasure to meet and converse with. I estimate that the boat would hold no more than 30 people. During our stay at Ashford Castle they offered two cruise options; a one hour trip on the lake and a trip to an... More

It was a beautiful sunny day and a delightful cruise. The trip was informative with a pleasant crew to offer snacks, drinks and plenty of local inform. Although we didn't have children with us, a family was seated near us and the children also enjoyed the beautiful lake cruise.

We went out on the 11:00 cruise and fortunately had a beautiful sunny day. The cruise is an hour long and is very relaxing. Both David and Patrick were our hosts and tour operators. The two of them really know their stuff concerning the lake, Ashford Castle and the surrounding area. Their family has been involved in this business for... More

This was such a cool experience! First off the staff is wonderful and very knowledgeable of the area! The boat ride was very fun a little chilly so bring a jacket. Once you get to the island you are jetted back over a thousand years and get to walk thru where St Patrick himself first started in Ireland!

A great diversion from looking at old things. We did have a perfect weather day. We did the one hour boat ride at 11:00 and it was perfect. Great photographs of Ashford Castle and the grounds surrounding it are available. Staff very accommodating, history interesting and Celtic music for cruising all made for a fun time!

Family of four went on a day cruise to cong from Oughterard via Inchagoill island. Very enjoyable and David as captain made for a very engaging tour guide. Inchagoill definitely worth a trip. Boat pulls into ashford castle but you cannot go into hotel. The boat ticket gets you access to castle gardens. There is a nice cafe on the... More

We had organised our anniversary treat at the castle a year in advance. Having breakfast we were offered a boat ride by the captain. Not only was it a beautiful day, but the scenery and the captains knowledge of the history of Corrib were as good as it gets. This is a must do activity when you are in this... More

While staying at the amazing Ashford Castle we decided to take a cruise with Corrib Cruises and selected the 2:45 departure since it included a stop in the small island. We were very lucky to have David as our captain and guide. David is fun , easy going and a well of information. Stepping into the island is like going... More
