What our passengers say…..
‘Planning next year’s visit with our extended families’
Our trip to Inishkea was absolutely amazing. An item on our bucket list and it delivered spades. Myself and my 2 friends thoroughly enjoyed our day. The boat trip was an absolute pleasure in the capable hands of Sean ably assisted by his daughter Kea and son Josh. Kea is a wonderful tour guide with a wealth of knowledge about the islands. It is clear she is passionate about her heritage. Parents and grandparents take a bow. Lovely to see this in somebody so young. Her sense and pride of her home place is wonderful to witness. She has a way with people. We are already planning next year’s visit with our extended families. Many thanks Margaret, Claire and Myra
‘Inishkea has to be one of the most beautiful places in Ireland‘
Couldn’t recommend this trip highly enough. Inishkea has to be one of the most beautiful places in Ireland and has a compelling history too. Sean and his lovely children were fantastic guides and great company. They made our child with additional needs feel like a King. Sean gave him a captain’s hat, let him sit in the captain’s chair and convinced him he was crew. We will be hearing about it for months! A wonderful experience for us all. We can’t thank you enough.
