Boat Trips

A memorable experience on the Rye Water

The ultimate way to relax and unwind, a boat trip at Carton is almost like taking a trip back in time. Our experienced boatman will take you on a most enjoyable and memorable experience along the Rye Water with stories and anecdotes aplenty and if you are lucky you will spot some of the estate wildlife along the way including deer, otters, kingfishers, herrons and various birds of prey as well as the local flora and fauna.

Guests are advised to bring cameras as the views from our Sheelin lake boat of the Duke’s Island, Salmon Weir and Shell Cottage with its very own little bit of rock & roll history are completely unique and a great memento of your stay at Carton House.

The boat can hold up to 4 people max and the trip lasts approximately 45 minutes. Suitable for families, couples and any small group.

Please arrive 5-10 minutes in advance of your time slot to allow fitting of personal flotation devices.

Available Tuesday - Saturday.
