Lough Corrib Boat Tours

A 2 hour experience (approximately) taking you from Lisloughrey or Oughterard piers embarking on an exciting excursion to Inchagoill Island in the middle of Lough Corrib. We depart from Lisloughrey pier for this trip regularly during our season and we depart from Oughterard pier for this trip on Saturday mornings or on other days upon group requests. If you have a group and are interested in a different day or time to our schedule please contact us to see how we may be able to accommodate you on a day or time to suit. 

This trip stops at Inchagoill Island giving you the opportunity to explore the historical ruins, wonderful scenery and enjoy the rich and interesting history that the Island has to offer. Why not bring a picnic with you to enjoy in the idyllic surroundings while you're there or maybe bring your swimming gear and go for a dip in the beautiful waters of the bay? Remember, please bring all your rubbish home with you as we operate a strict leave no trace policy to ensure we leave the island as clean as possible. 

Inchagoill Island is one of the largest wooded islands on Lough Corrib and is situated halfway between Cong and Oughterard. The island is famous for having provided sanctuary to Saint Patrick for a number of years with his nephew, Lugnad (also known as Lugna & Lugnaedon), who remained on the island when Saint Patrick left. While on the island with us you can visit his grave which is known as Lugnad's Stone. This stone pillar is in the shape of a rudder as Lugnad was said to be Saint Patrick's navigator and is credited with bringing Saint Patrick to the island.

Also on the island are 2 ancient churches that you can visit, one from the 5th century called 'Teampall Phádraig' or St. Patrick's Church and the other one from the 12th century called 'Teampall na Naoimh' or Church of the Saints. These churches, a grave yard and an abandoned village are all a short walk from the pier that we land at on the island. 

After this 1 hour (approximately) stop you'll continue your trip taking you between islands and bays. You'll also get to see the world famous Ashford Castle from the lake before returning to the pier to round off this breath taking and memorable experience.
