Experience the tranquil River Bann from the comfort of a vintage vessel and discover the fascinating origins story of human settlement in Ireland. A unique land and water-based heritage journey across diverse timelines. This fully guided new experience includes a seated river trip on the classic boat M.V. Kingfisher, a 1-hour shore stop walk at Mountsandel State Care heritage site and complimentary refreshments onboard.

Outside our usual scheduled experiences, the M.V. Kingfisher is available for private charters.  Each charter is designed to your specific requirements, a truly unique idea for celebrating a special occasion: birthday, graduation, anniversary, wedding or engagement party, team building event or simply an amazing day out with family and friends.
