Boating Tours in Connemara

Killary Cruises - Sightseeing Trips, Leenane, Killary Fjord

56c Bowling Green, Galway

No visit to Connemara would be complete without a visit to Killary Fjord, a nine-mile long inlet which boasts some of the finest scenery in the West of Ireland.

Our purpose built luxury catamaran, which can accommodate up to 150 passengers, was designed to offer maximum comfort and safety to our guests, and also to allow them uninterrupted views of the spectacular scenery, which makes the Killary Fjord such a unique place to visit.

A trip on the Killary is a memorable experience regardless of weather. In fact the Killary is particularly exciting in wet weather given the many streams that swell and spring to life as the water cascades down the steep mountains that make up the Killary shoreline.

Full bar and food available on board. No seasickness money back guarantee. The ultimate rainy day experience in Connemara. All trips depart from and return to Nancy’s Point, 2km outside Leenane.

Open April to October. July/Aug Cocktail Cruise Special: Fri & Sat nightly.
