Experience the Rose of Innisfree
Lough Gill, an eight kilometres long limestone lake, lying just east of Sligo Town, nestled within counties Leitrim & Sligo is a place of utter beauty. Steeped in myth and legend, immortalised by William Butler Yeats, it is one of the must-see attractions when visiting the West Coast of Ireland.
The Rose of Innisfree is a modern, all-weather tourboat able to accommodate 72 passengers in complete comfort and safety. The vessel has a fully enclosed heated cabin area, offers a range of onboard snacks and refreshments and is also fully licensed.
Established in 1992 by George and Tina McGoldrick, we’re still a family business today, with the second generation proudly showing beautiful Lough Gill, the Lake Isle of Innisfree, Parke’s Castle and Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands to visitors throughout the year.

What our visitors say
“The trip was super, the two hours were well spent observing the beautiful scenery, the captain had very interesting facts about certain things we passed which I really enjoyed
“Definitely well worth a trip we just had a wonderful afternoon on the tour boat and looking forward to going again. Great for people that are not as mobile as they used to be.
“We joined the boat trip at the new jetty just before the entrance to Doorly Park in Sligo. Lovely calm day on the lakes as we sailed along.
“Entertaining trip on the lough. Beautiful, relaxing scenery. Friendly service of tea and coffee. Well worth a visit”- July 2019
“We had such a lovely day today for our sons 5th birthday. He was made feel so special and even got to wear the captains hat and drive the boat. Such lovely people. We’ll definitely be back. Highly recommend it.
“Over the years I had many parties on this boat (which I highly recommend it for), but recently I went with family (of all ages) for a cruise. It is a wonderful way to spend an hour or an afternoon.
