    Great views of Ross Castle from the lake! Got to see a lot more from the boat that we wouldn't have from shore. Would love to go again in the open top boats too!

    Lovely tour of the lake. It was rainy and windy but we were warm and dry inside the boat. Good commentary from the guide as we went.

    The 4 of us enjoyed this covered lake cruise. Our guide was knowledgeable and humorous and answered questions from the passengers. It was a bit rainy, so nice to be enclosed, but it does hamper the view a bit.

    Myself, my wife and our daughter age 7 took this tour. We pre booked online and when we arrived the boat was there ready and waiting for us to go on the tour. The tour itself was breathtaking. The views were phenomenal and the captain was brilliant in informing us of every detail and story of each focal point. The weather was stunning so everything was clear. The captains son was also very helpful in taking pictures from the back of the boat for us. It was a really good tour and highly recommended.
