No visit to the north west is complete without a trip on the Rose of Innisfree tourboat to view the Isle of Innisfree, situated on one of Ireland's most beautiful lakes, Lough Gill, which straddles Co Sligo and Co Leitrim.

No visit to the north west is complete without a trip on the Rose of Innisfree tourboat to view the Isle of Innisfree, situated on one of Ireland's most beautiful lakes, Lough Gill, which straddles Co Sligo and Co Leitrim.

This island inspired WB Yeats to write Irelands most popular poem. Depart from the 17th Century Parkes Castle and take a leisurely cruise across Lough Gill for a memorable trip in an area of outstanding natural beauty steeped in myth and legend. Tea, coffee, home baking, snacks and full bar services on board. Live commentary and poetry recitals.

Lough Gill's environs are unrivalled in Ireland for their unspoilt beauty and interest to tourists and locals alike. It's the great diversity of geology, archaeology, history and scenery, which leaves a permanent impression on all visitors. Lough Gill's association with major events dates back as far as any locality in Europe, e.g. Queen Maeve of Connaught, O'Rourke's of Breffni, Norman Invasion, Sligo Abbey, Plantation Castle, 1916 Rising. The Cruise takes in numerous places of interest including Church island, Dooney Rock, Slish Wood and many, many more.
