“Beautiful, serene lake!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

I love the fact that there are no motorized boats. Back in the States, there would be loud boats, jet skis and water skiing. This place is almost magical. Very serene, and a great place to sit and relax. We stayed at the Hotel Europe, which is right on the water, so the views were amazing!

“We enjoyed the boat ride”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

We combined exploration of the beautiful Lough Leane with the hike through the Gap of Dunloe. The boat ride was very scenic and picturesque. It started at The Lord Brandon's Cottage. Our guide was eloquent and witty and made the trip very interesting. Depending on variable Irish weather it can be very cold and windy on the lake so dress appropriately.

We went on the boat cruise. It was very pleasant and relaxing.
The Skipper/Guide was wonderful and we looked on this boat trip as special.
