NATURE | HISTORY | CULTURE
Galway Bay is the West Coast of Ireland’s principal gateway to some of the most spectacular seascapes in Europe, including: the ecologically unique Burren limestone mountains, Connemara’s rugged coastline & the magical Aran Islands. It is now possible to visit by boat some of Galway's most picturesque coastal villages, for a family picnic, seafood lunch or romantic evening meal.
We endeavour to make your trip a memorable experience through our bespoke & varied offerings. We cater for families, groups, & individuals. In addition, we provide special themed events for corporate team building, weddings & birthdays.
Please contact us for a unique tailored boat tour experience, or an exclusive private adventure.
We also offer Fishing Tours, either with rods or a ‘Lobster and Crab Safari’. We have a number of lobster pots (traps) set around the Bay, and it is possible (depending on the time of year) to take a boat trip & harvest the catch and re-bait these pots.
In addition, there is the option of purchasing your catch (fish or lobster) and, by prior arrangement, avail of a ‘catch and cook’ deal, where a local seafood restaurant will cook your harvest later in the evening.
Afternoon or Evening Sunset Trips: Bespoke Family or Romantic Boating Excursions.
Before the road networks of Galway were built, it was easier to navigate your way through Galway via a series of integrated sea & waterways. Today, it is possible to combine the ‘old with the new’, and to travel by sea (as our ancestors once did) in one of our modern boats, to some of Galway's most popular tourist attractions: Salthill Village, Barna, or further afield to the stunning coastal village of Newquay or Ballyvaughan, in the Burren (these trips only run at certain times of the year).

Day Tour to the Burren
Stop off for some lunch or refreshments at one of the many traditional villages that surround Galway Bay. Here, we will meander along a coastline of slate grey mountains that skirt the Atlantic horizon: a wild seascape through which our senses interpret the connection we intuitively feel between Ireland and America.
It is an opportunity to reflect upon our sense of belonging; our connection to the elements & each other.
Why not order a family picnic with one of our restaurant partners, or book a romantic lunch in one of our recognised best foodie venues. Enjoy some of Galway's best! Voted Region of Gastronomy, 2018.
Want to enjoy a long relaxing evening? It's even possible to order a taxis to bring you home!
