The Boat Tours are currently running for the Spring/Summer 2013 season at 12.30pm daily.

In this year of "The Gathering" why not gather your family and friends together for a trip on the Rose of Innisfree, there is no better way to see the sights of Lough Gill making a a day never to forget.

This year we have 2 concerts planned on 31st July & 1st August, W.B Yeats poetry to music and song by Fanet Yann.  A lovely modern rendition truly not to be missed.

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 & Full Bar services on board. Live Commentary & Poetry Recitals.

Lough Gills environs are unrivalled in Ireland for its unspoilt beauty and interest to tourists and locals alike. Its great diversity of geology, archaeology, history and scenery leave a permanent impression on all visitors. Lough Gills 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.
