Weddings At Ashford Castle- Get Out On The Water!
In today’s Real Wedding post, we return to Ashford Castle Hotel. We discuss how better to extend your destination wedding than enjoying the pre and post wedding activities here. Why not get out on the water and enjoy a boat trip on Lough Corrib?
Kate and Steve, who we met in last week’s Real Wedding post, decided to do just that. Choosing to explore and take in the beauty of Ireland’s West Coast waters. They took a family trip on the Isle of InisFree vessel.
You can choose from;
Family cruises– A perfect choice for the day before or day after the wedding.
There are 2 cruises to choose from- The History Cruise and The Island and Traditional Music Cruise.
- The History Cruise:
Patrick Luskin, a local historian takes you on a scenic journey through history and time. With 365 islands and the Connemara Mountains in full view, it is a truly breathtaking trip and creates amazing memories for you and your guests. This cruise is available throughout the year.
- The Island and Traditional Music Cruise:
You’ll visit Lisloughery Quay before arriving at your destination, Inchagil Island. The famous island boasts 100 acres of forestry and holds St. Patrick’s 15th Century Monastic Site. Enjoy live music, stories and songs along the way. This trip is available from June 1st through to September 30th.
Private tours– Take a private trip in a hand crafted wooden boat, a romantic experience for the couple to be or newlyweds. You could even take ‘Cranki’, the 40 ft, Italian Built, Luxury Motor-Yacht.
