Take the 'slow boat' along the Blackwater

PDF Print E-mail

In stark contrast to some of the other boat trips along the Blackwater river, Tony Gallagher's trip is a much more relaxed affair. Taking up to 10 guests at a time, Tony stands barefoot at the helm of Maeve, his 28ft half decker.

Tony, a natural raconteur with a love of life and a good yarn, knows all of the stories of the river and is the perfect guide for a relaxed trip along one of Europe's unspoilt major rivers.

Pass down the estuary by Youghal town and under the 'new bridge' Tony will point out the old Knights Templar fortress at Rincrew, and the almost immediately you will leave the 21st century behind. There are no roads beside you, just a couple of cottages to be seen, and miles of beautiful riverside, where the forests drip down into the rising tide.  

Pass around a bend and you'll see the ruins of the once important Molana Abbey and dead ahead the beautiful stately home Ballinatray House. Further along and the only buildings that you might see are other forts and stately homes - the remants of defences that were built along the river when it was the most important trading highway in Ireland. That time is long forgotten, and it seems the river was forgotten too - preserved, pristine.
