Family friendly
Paid car parking
Join the captain and crew of the Barrow Princess on a relaxing river cruise between the historic maritime ports of New Ross, County Wexford and Waterford City in Ireland’s famous sunny South East.

Take in the spectacular views from the comfort of the plush lounge aboard the Barrow Princess or soak up the sights from the panoramic open air top deck, keeping warm with a complimentary blanket courtesy of their crew.

Listen to the engaging audio tour and imagine the rich history of the Barrow River and Suir River coming to life. Venture up to the cabin where the captain will share stories of the vessel and life on the river.

The beautifully presented Barrow Princess is proudly owned and operated by the Bates family. Hailing from generations of local and skilled mariners, the Bates family are also experienced tour operators, having run the ferries to the Saltee Islands for many decades.

Why we like it
  • Take in the panoramic views across Wexford, Waterford and Kilkenny on the upper deck.
  • Relax under the comfort of a blanket while absorbing the history of well known landmarks.
  • Unwind indoors and enjoy a hot or cold refreshment.
