Lambay Tour & Day Trip Packages


Visits to Lambay are arranged on a private basis only, and there are set fees for groups of up to 6 or 12 people.  Unfortunately we cannot cater to enquiries for individuals looking to join an existing Historical Architecture Tour, but you are welcome contact Eamon McGrattan for individual spots on his Nature Walking Tours.

For nature lovers, this is a perfect opportunity to explore the wilder parts of Lambay and, if you are lucky, see some of the island's incredible wildlife in its natural habitat.  Seals, deer, wallabies and puffins to name but a few.

Enjoy a jolly sail over in the Naomi Leigh with our local living legend, Eamon McGrattan.  Eamon will then guide you on a 3-hour walk of the island including the Real Tennis Court and Chapel, past the Walled Garden and up through the wilder parts of the island to where the unfortunate RMS Tayleur met an early demise in 1854.  A warming tea or coffee completes the experience.


For both corporate and private groups, Lambay provides a sensational and unforgettable destination with ample space for fresh air walks, personal development and reflection, think tanks, conferences, workshops, as well as a stunning setting for a lunch, afternoon tea or dinner.
