Lake Cruising

A voyage into the ancient past

A relaxing lake cruise is the perfect way to explore the 365 islands and immerse yourself in the magnificent scenery surrounding Lough Corrib.

Corrib Cruises is a family run passenger boat service on Lough Corrib, operated by brothers Patrick and David Luskin. With 365 islands and surrounding Connemara Mountains, you will have a great opportunity to photograph Ashford Castle from the water. 

The two vessels, The M.V Corrib Queen 2 (accommodating 50 passengers and a limited number on the top deck) and The M.V Isle of Innisfree (a twin deck 80 passenger vessel) provide the setting for a choice of voyages from between 1 hour to 2 hours 15 minutes.

A visit to The Old Steamers Quay and views of Lord Ardilaun’s Obelisk are highlights. This Cruise operates 365 days a year.

Island & Live Traditional Music Cruise
