Captain and Crew
We were honoured to welcome President and Mrs. Higgins aboard. As you can see, they helped drive the boat. It’s not just Presidents that get this opportunity, any child who helps the Captain will get a Captain’s Certificate.
Enter our Art Competition
Create a beautiful picture of the glorious scenery around you or do some colouring in with one of our very special colouring in sheets. Each week in summer we will put the best pictures on to our website, just hand your finished artwork into the office, or get Mam and Dad to send us a scan. We provide the paper, pencils, and crayons.Kids Go Free
Watch for dolphins
As these magnificent creatures are truly wild, we can’t promise Dolphins every day. However if our resident pod of Bottlenose Dolphins are in playful mood, they enjoy nothing more than racing alongside the Connemara Lady or leaping through her bow wave. Keep an eye open when we reach the furthest point of the tour as this is where you are most likely to see them.
Have Lunch, or a Snack
From homemade soups and sandwiches to seafood platters, delicious Killary mussels and oysters from just around the corner in Ballinakill Bay, the food available at the Connemara Lady’s café is second to none for freshness and low food miles. With a licensed bar for the adults, our younger guests can choose from an array of snacks and sweet treats and a great selection of hot and cold drinks, such as our moccacinos and hot chocolate, finished with cream and marshmallow sprinkles.
