“Relaxing but could easily be shortened...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

We went with a group and it was a relaxing time and the show (how to make Irish coffee and do Irish dancing) was great, but it could easily have been shortened in time. We went out and then turned around and there were not a lot of sights on the trip that you need to see twice (considering you go slow). We had a catered meal and it was quite good considering the size of our group - 60. For a group activity, I would recommend but perhaps not as an individual.

“Relaxing Cruise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

Since the day was sunny I decided to take the Corrib Princess cruise. Get information on the way out to the lower lake and peaceful silence on the way back. Upper deck had full sun and a nice breeze. Good photo ops.

“Beautiful nature with a touch of history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

We enjoyed the boat trip on a very sunny day. The first half of the tour was filled with the history of the buildings we passed. The way back you could really enjoy the sun and beautyful nature. Don't know if the trip would be as nice with bad weather.

“OK but a little boring! ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

My family took this Cruise because we had time to spare and wanted to see Galway and it's scenic monuments and sights from a cruise. Unfortunately there wasn't much to be seen and it was really quite a boring 1.5 hours. The guide spoke from a microphone and it sounds like he was reading from a script. No emotions no introduction to whom he was either. My dad was starving and he thought there was food on the boat but all they had were crisps and some drinks. We however did enjoy their Irish coffee.

The sights were mostly of the vast Lake and that was it. I would suggest this cruise for someone who wants to get a bit of sun on the upper deck when it's a good sunny day. Or else I would really give this trip a miss. For what it was worth it was an expensive 15Euro for an adult.
