Welcome to Boyne Boats Adventure

Experience the Boyne Valley like never before in Ireland’s answer to Game of Thrones – the Battle of the Boyne! Take a trip back in time and learn how the Battle of the Boyne shaped Ireland’s future. Enter the Boyne navigation system and propel yourself through history. As you paddle along in the newly restored Boyne canal, you will hear and feel the sounds of battle. Is this Ireland or Westeros?

Along the boat adventure you will hear the story of the battle of the Boyne that happened over 325 years ago, but still resonates today. Will you be able to separate fact from fiction?

Ireland’s Ancient East meets Westeros as the currach you travel in has starred in the hit TV show – Game of Thrones. Find out how the icon of Irish symbolism – the currach – has become part of the Game of Thrones scenery and hear stories from those who were there.

As a crew of eight, you will come together and learn to paddle like a true Iron Islander. Who knows this may also be the way our ancestors helped transport the building blocks for Newgrange just 4 km upstream.

Enjoy the thrill of southern Ireland’s first Game of Thrones boat experience whether you are a cultural tourist, a heritage tourist, an adventure tourist or a Game of Thrones fan this will appeal to you all.
