Wheelyboat 2020 - The Wheelchair Accessible Powerboat
Now open for bookings in July / August 2020.
We are delighted to announce that we are soon offering trips in our fabulous Wheelyboat "Saoirse". The last few months have been very challenging for us all and what better way to get out and about safely and enjoy some fresh air than on the water with us in beautiful Kinsale.
For those especially in the Disability Community, we are excited to be able to begin a return to activity program. That excitement is coupled with careful consideration as to how we can safely provide such opportunities.
We have number of dates and time slots available now on our website to book. Please bear in mind that we are operating these trips with the highest standards of consideration for our staff and indeed you our customers to safeguard everyone's health and safety. Therefore, we are offering these trips on a "Same household basis". For example we can offer a trip to a family or indeed to a service user and their care assistants. Trips will be for one hour and there will be adequate time before departing to brief and prepare our participants. The boat will the thoroughly cleaned down after trip and made ready for the next group.
The maximum amount people allowable on any trip is 5.
So, have a look at the booking section on our website, book online. The good news is that we are making these trips very accessible through a nominal fee.
In booking with us you will also be required to sign a declaration of suitability from a Covid 19 perspective. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email us at or phone us on 021 4778296.
