About This Boat

Killarney has long been famous for its beauty – mountain, lake and woodland richly overlaid with legend, archaeology, history and folklore. Our Day Tour is the perfect way to see the rich and varied vegetation and the spectacular scenery in comfort and the company of experts on its many stories.

The tour begins by coach past St Mary’s Cathedral, the great Pugin’s masterpiece, built during the famine by a people whose faith was stronger than their hunger. We go past the Hill of Aghadoe with its twelfth century monastery and Round Tower and on over the River Laune to Ireland’s highest mountains, the MacGillicuddy Reeks.

Here we change to horseback or carriage to go through the Gap of Dunloe, hewn two million years ago by giant, slow moving ice. We stop at Lord Brandon’s Cottage for a snack, looking out at Serpent’s Lake where legend has it that Saint Patrick imprisoned the last of the great snakes. Here we change to boats to float down the first Killarney’s three famous lakes, the Upper Lake. This lake is surrounded by a huge natural oak woodland. We pass Ronayne’s Island, where the great mathematician lived, and Eagle’s Nest mountain, which inspired Alfred Lord Tennyson in his poem to “set the wild echoes flying”.
