These guided 75-minute tours of Donegal Bay take place daily on a modern, two-deck boat. Points of interest along the way include the Old Abbey ★; the aptly named Seal Island, home to a colony of about 200 noisy seals; and The Hassans, a port from which many emigrants from the northern part of the country left for the New World. The guides are enthusiastic and knowledgeable; unfortunately, their commentary is non-stop (guides have even been known to play the keyboard to fill in moments of silence). The views, however, are wonderful. There’s a bar on board; seniors get free tea, coffee, and bottled water (ask for a voucher when picking up your tickets). Sailing times are usually morning and afternoon or evening, but are dependent upon tides and weather, so call ahead. Buy tickets from the office on Quay Street—it’s the white-and-blue building next to Dom’s Pier 1 Bar.
