The Corrib Princess is a family business operated by Tom and Kathleen McDonagh. Corrib Tours began operating cruises on the river and Lough Corrib in 1989, however it was not until 1991 that the current boat, the Corrib Princess, was custom built in Rathcairn, Co Meath, and transported by road to Woodquay. This boat was built with panoramic large windows and upper deck to ensure that passengers enjoy the spectacular views as they cruise the river and lake.
The Corrib Princess is used by Tour operators who bring groups to Ireland that travel on coaches; they include a cruise on Lough Corrib as part of their itinerary. The cruise is also available for corporate groups, school tours and active retirement groups, and “hen parties.” The Corrib Princess is easily accessible for visitors to Galway as it is just a few minutes walk from Eyre Square. The boat can be chartered in the evenings as a unique private venue and is very popular with sports and social groups, birthday celebrations, anniversary or other special occasions. Passengers can also enjoy delicious BBQs prepared on board by local restaurateur JP McMahon of Cava Outside Catering, followed by great entertainment by musicians such as Marc Roberts, Carmel Dempsey, Brenda Curtin and DJ Aidan Kenny. Good food, full bar service, and great entertainment makes your night on board the Corrib Princess a memorable occasion.
Rory Costello has been the Captain of the Corrib Princess for the past 21 years; he strives to make each cruise enjoyable and memorable for everyone.
