Self-Drive Boats with Cork Harbour Boat Hire

For families looking for something a little different to do, a day out with Cork Harbour Boat Hire is a must! It’s suitable for all the family – with life vests for all ages – even for 6 month old babies!

A variety of options are available, from one-hour trips, to treasure hunts up the River Lee to Cork City. There is also a new high speed boat trip on offer – but this is NOT self-drive!

The self-drive boats are sturdy and probably unsinkable. They take 3 passengers comfortably and small kiddies can sit on Mum or Dad’s knee. All safety precautions are in place.

Following safety instructions, a flotilla of small boats departs from the Quays Bar Marina in Cobh. All under the watchful eyes of the fully qualified guides – which continues for the entire trip, so you are never left alone.

On the trip, there are several stops to hear the history or a story of a particular point of interest, such as Spike Island, Haulbowline or the Navel College.

A really worth while adventure for all the family to enjoy!
