Details

Kid Friendly: Yes. Children are very welcome but they will require parental or adult supervision while on the lakes in the boat. Floatation life jackets are provided for all passengers. However, the trip through the lakes is quite safe and family friendly.

Friendly: No.
Unfortunately,the boating section of the tour and the necessity to get in and out of the boat, is not wheelchair friendly. However, I do urge persons with mild physical disbilities to feel welcome on this tour as they are as much entitled to experience the joys of life as everyone else.

Boat Trip and Walking Tour of The Lakes of Killarney and The Gap of Dunloe


In the year 2004, Killarney celebrated the 250th year anniversary of the founding of the town of Killarney. Whilst the town is rich in history and heritage, it is its surrounding landscape, lakes and National Park that is the jewel in its crown. It is this distinctive combination of mountains, woods and lakes under ever changing skies that gives this area a special scenic beauty that has attracted visitors to Killarney.

My Tour will visit some hidden gems of Killarney and will start at the medieval Ross Castle where we will board our boat and commence our journey of 13 miles (21km)through the Three Lakes of Killarney, visiting Innisfallen Island and its monastic church, Dinis Cottage & The Meeting of the Waters, The Long Range & The Eagle's Nest, Lord Brandon's Cottage for lunch followed by a guided walk of 6 miles(10km), or if you prefer a horse drawn Jaunting car, through The Black Valley, the famous Gap of Dunloe, to our destination at Kate Kearney's Cottage.

A Recent Review of this tour

Mary was exceptional. The weather was not cooperating with our tour plans. Mary helped plan a different day and turned what could have been a huge disappointment into the best day of our trip. Mary is incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and loads of fun. She helped my mother meet an old friend of her fathers' in a local pub. Mary created a very special day for us!
