Hi Lads, Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review. I'm delighted you all had a laugh onboard and you had a fantastic time in the Boyne valley. We're working away on the river tour at the moment and will be updating regularly on social media so keep an eye out for boyneboats! Best, Ross.

Great experience, highly recommended for families with kids. Ross will make sure you enjoy your trip and kids will be occupied with paddling :) We will be back there at some stage, possibly for the new route planned by Ross (good luck with it Ross!)
