“fantastic way to see kinsale on a good day”

Kinsale Harbour Cruises
Reviewed 20 August 2013

if its summer. and the sun is shining. then yes do this tour. i went on it with my hostmum ( as i was aupair) and one of the children - so the tour is good for ages 3+ years i would say. it showed me parts of kinsale i hasnt seen, and i was living there for 10 months. i went on this about a week before i left kinsale heading back to new zealand and the beauty of it made me tear up. i miss kinsale and i am glad i did this tour before i left. recommend to all visiting kinsale/cork area.

We took this cruise tour this afternoon- weather was gorgeous and it was a lovely way to pass an hour.
Tours today were at 12pm, 2pm, 3pm and 5pm. They were oversubscribed at 12 so we came back at 2pm and we were 20 mins early and it sold out by a quarter to so early arrival at the dock is advisable. The times are advertised at the tourist office and I got the feeling times may change depending on the day.

Great views of both sides of Kinsale bay, sailing boats and mouth of river Bandon. There is a pre-recorded commentary giving local landmarks, the history of landmarks and place names with interesting interval music!
The staff a lovely and complimentary tea and coffee are available downstairs. Very relaxing cruise and would highly recommend it.

We brought our two children on the cruise age 1 and 3 and we all loved it. Staff were extremely helpful and polite and we got to see kinsale harbour in all it's glory. Well worth the 12.50 per adult. Children were free which is great. Highly recommended.

The harbour cruise was interesting and the scenery great. Great to cruise around with lots of smaller sailing craft. Very pleasant operators and a lovely water experience. Time passed so quickly and took great photos of the forts. Would recommend this cruise. Was a highlight of my day in kinsale.

What beautiful views of Kinsale from the boat. It was so relaxing to sit back and enjoy it all. We were up on the top deck as the weather allowed us to!Blankets were provided if it was cold. There was lovely background music and refreshments on board. All that was needed for the voyage! The trip was an hour but seemed shorter we enjoyed it so much. This is a great trip to take for all ages!
