Rose of Innisfree Boat Tour

Step aboard the Rose of Innisfree Tourboat and embark on an enchanting journey to the Lake Isle of Innisfree, made famous in the poetry of W.B. Yeats.

Each hour-long lake cruise allows you to sit back and enjoy the natural beauty of the area, while hearing about its history, legends and renowned appearance in literature.

The tour departs from Parke's Castle, on the shores of Lough Gill, only a 15-minute drive from the Radisson Blu Hotel & Resort, Sligo, as well as Sligo town centre.

Enjoy the scenery in Yeats country
The Rose of Innisfree is a family-run company that has been entertaining and enlightening visitors to the area for over 20 years. Each cruise features live commentary and poetry readings by the captain, and with several sailings each day (numbers permitting), you'll be able to enjoy this exquisite area of Ireland whenever it best suits your schedule.

The tour boat itself is a comfortable, 72-seat vessel that's fully wheelchair accessible. There's a heated, covered section for those days when an atmospheric mist lingers on the lake, as well as an outdoor deck upstairs that's perfect for taking in the sights on fine days.

Delicious home baking, coffee and tea are available on board, as are full bar facilities. The Rose of Innisfree can also be booked for private parties, with catering and entertainment arranged on request.

For those who wish to experience even more of the local area, you can combine your boat trip with a guided bus tour that finishes at the lake. Visit the lovely Glencar Waterfall, Yeats' grave at Drumcliffe and the picturesque Parke's Castle before setting sail to Innisfree.
