If your interested in Yeats you won't be disapointed. The captain has a mezmerizing voice and knows all Yeats poems by head. He tells you beautiful stories and of course you'll get a gorgeous view of Lough Gill.

The captain, George, a true Irish character in the best sense, gives an impassioned tour with quotes from Yeats and offers info on some of the locals and locales. Go on, take the cruise and enjoy the craic.
