“absolute great”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

the yearly river fest ist just so much fun and entertainment.
a 3 day festival with fireworks, stages with great live music, many stands with food, sweets, nice things to buy etc.

on the 2nd day they had a BBQ mile. so many BBQ stands in a row with different kind of meat. the food is free.....yes free....
there are buckets where people can donate whatever they like.

lots of kids entertainment is there. facepainting, something like a haribo labyrinth and in the park trampolines, water-fun-bubbles and loads more. some things in the park will be charged for.

the pubs are cosy and welcoming and the bands are really good. bands of different types of music.

its just great for every age group and i can highly recomend it. i will be there next may again :)

“A Great Trip out to Lough Corrib!”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 via mobile

If you're around Galway, don't miss the Corrib Princess. This is an enjoyable trip, even if the weather isn't perfect. The cruise will take you up the historic marshes along the River Corrib and out to the Lough. Along the way, you will enjoy interesting commentary in the history oh life along the river dating as far back as 2000 BC.

While aboard don't fail to order one of their Award Winning Irish Coffees. Cruise Manager, Rosin Sweeney, was cited for making the world's best Irish Coffee at the 2011 Foynes Irish Coffee Festival!

“..and a glass of Guiness too”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Clean, roomy ship; licensed, hence the Guiness!; vary tasteful commentary from a good sound system that didn't blare at you.
Learned a lot about the marine culture of Galway's waterways
Friendly and amusing crew.

“Pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Booked this for a friend of mines hen. We had to take the early sail as we had other evening plans. The later one was more of a party boat which is what we had wanted. We ended up on a more traditional tourist cruise with Irish dancing and Irish coffee making demonstrations. It actually ended up being quite funny with some of the girls dancing with the tourists. It also suited some of the older ladies in our group as it wasn't anything too mental. Once the Americans lightened up a bit everyone seemed to enjoy themselves! The staff were lovely and friendly!

“Best part of my sisters Hens!”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

Couldn't recommend the Corrib Princess River Cruise anymore. Especially to anyone looking to organise a Hen Party. It was so unexpected and the enjoyment everyone had was unreal. The staff are so lovely and made our experience worth while!!
