Very pleasent cruise

The views are great, the commentary is not bad. You get a good look at Menlo Castle, which is hardly accessible by land. The Irish Coffee they're very proud of is really good.

The boat is really well kept and has a fully stocked bar. The staff were so accommodating, and really made us feel very welcome. The Corrib itself is... More

I had misread the cruise description and thought there would be live entertainment and an Irish Coffee making demonstration on the cruise, but that is only for private bookings. My sister and I took the 1st cruise of the 2017 season and enjoyed the relaxing ride and the amazing views. We learned some of the history in the area and... More

We spend part of an afternoon cruising up and down the river. It was a lovely day to be out on the water. The tour is moderately interesting as one passes several old castles with interesting stories behind them, the scenery was nice but not dramatic and the water fowl fun to watch. The company has a reputation for making... More

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!
