This was the best way ever to cap off our wedding weekend! About 30 of our friends and family, including 2 kids ages 1 and 3, hopped on the Corrib Princess yesterday and we had such a blast--everyone especially loved Róisín's Irish coffee demonstration and her Siege of Ennis tutorial! Róisín--you're the only person in the world who's ever gotten... More

Took this trip last Saturday in September 2016, the staff were excellent. There were interesting stories & history of the river and lake on commentary. Very peaceful , fun trip for all our family. Would recommend to anyone visiting Galway.

Whilst visiting Galway I took a trip on this river cruise. The staff were very pleasant and friendly. The cruise was interesting and scenic. They also served tea and cream scones as part of the package. I would recommend this cruise.

Suprised my Mother and Sister with a two hour sailing last Saturday afternoon. On arrival, we (6 of us in total) were greeted by friendly staff. The lower deck was spacious and warm and had a bar! The windows were quite large so everyone could enjoy the views. The upper deck has seating and would be nice in warmer weather.... More

Loved this river cruise. The staff were friendly and helpful. They make the best Irish Coffee I have had in Ireland. They did a demo of how to make Irish Coffee and the dancing entertainment was fantastic. Beautiful , sunny day on the river. Thanks so much !

Enjoyed the 90ish minute round trip on the boat. Boat was clean and the bar had a good selection of drinks and crisp type snacks. Crew very helpful and narrative was informative. There are a few historic sites but the scenery is mostly rural and reeds. It's not a way to see the city but doesn't claim to be. Our... More

Was hoping to see more than the river and lake. Lovely swans. Nice narration. Relaxing. My husband napped on the way back. We paid the OATS of 15 euro per person. A bit steep for what we got. The University and Cathedral are about all you see. Nice walk there along the river from city center.

They charged €16 per person on boat - which included nothing (a drink would be nice)... The staff were grumpy. We didn't feel welcomed on board and that by itself ruined the journey. The tour guide speaks way too much. I rated 2 because we enjoyed the loch and the scenery.

Dear Andrew, Thank you for reviewing the Corrib Princess River Cruise. I am very disappointed to read that you were disappointed with your experience and that you felt the staff were unwelcoming and grumpy. If you wish to send me on the date and sailing you travelled on I will discuss the matter with the crew on board during your... More

This was a charming, gentle way to see the Corrib River and Lake while learning about the history of Galway. Woodquay is very scenic itself and is a short stroll from Galway Cathedral. This was our first activity in Galway and was an excellent orientation to the area. Commentary is available in many languages.

My family (me, husband, teenager and father-in-law) took the Corrib Princess River Cruise this afternoon and we had a great time! The boat is comfortable, the audio information about Galway and the places of interest on the shores of the Corrib is sufficient without being stuffy and the staff on the boat couldn't be friendlier. There are upstairs seats where... More
