First let me say I really enjoyed my hour aboard the boat. The owner/captain was very friendly and welcoming, though he questioned if there was enough to do the tour. There was , but we deliberatley picked the 12.30 trip as some of the others said dependant on numbers, so I figured this one went even if numbers were below 4. Anyway there was about 10 people in total. The sail was smooth and pleasant and the scenery beautiful. I enjoyed the poetry and music and history behind the different parts of the lough. The commentary was read live by the captain, though it can be hard to hear outside. Someone has commented that he sounded creepy - I couldn't disagree more. He has a deep voice and sounds almost musical when reading poetry - a real jack-a-nory story telling voice. The trip was very relaxing. The Captain pointed out that we could buy drinks and snacks. We couldn't work out who off though as the girl who worked on the boat was sitting at the entrance door ignoring everyone and playing on her phone so I had to go and ask if she was the person to ask for tea and coffee. The bar remained unmanned therefore, the glasses sitting dirty in the sink, and snacks available were ginger nuts. Now I did not find this a big deal as I am easily pleased but I could imagine the stink some fussier complainers could cause. Price wise, 15 maybe is a little steep and 10 or 12 might be mor realistic. Had the service on board been better I may not be saying that, but this only relates to the sale of drinks and snacks.
