We were treated to tea, coffee and biscuits to warm our cold hands as we departed for our river cruise. The scenery along this stretch of the Barrow is absolutely beautiful. The boat is very well maintained with bathroom facilities and options to byob for longer tours or celebrations. It hosts up to 12 passengers very comfortably and you'll be thoroughly entertained by Chris' knowledge of the locality. If you are into your wildlife there is plenty of bird and river life to spot along the way as well seeing how the ancient lock systems work along this unique stretch of river and canal. My only regret is that we didn't book the 3 hour tour - a fantastic day out! What is even more impressive is that this service is run voluntarily by those in the community - at only a tenner a head and with hot drinks provided it is great value for money and you're supporting a wonderful local resource!\n\nWe'll definitely be back for the longer trip and who knows - we might see some of the famous kingfishers on the beautiful Barrow!","open_graph_story":{"id":"10156304144068790"}},{"reviewer":{"id":"2343352459114700","name":"Darren Doyle","picture":{"data":{"height":120,"is_silhouette":false,"url":"https:\/\/platform-lookaside.fbsbx.com\/platform\/profilepic\/?psid=2343352459114700&height=120&width=120&ext=1578615487&hash=AeRYB9rTUqZauE-m","width":120}}},"created_time":"2019-02-24T15:57:07+0000","recommendation_type":"positive","review_text":"This morning I did the boat trip with my two little girls for the first time & it truly was Amazing Adventure .

Amazing Family fun Wow what an amazing experience. I saw the tours were operating in Carlow and offered my family a... different Sunday than the usual cinema. We had so much fun and the Kids initially afraid of the water had a great time. The skipper Clifford knew everything about the history and nature attached to the river. Health and safety was paramount on the trip and Cliffs instructions to putting on a life jacket was akin to our last plane journey. I recommend anyone to try this great fun and 5 stars....great value alsoread more
