Had such an amazing time out on River Shannon. Even though I was very nervous to go out on the kayak (I'm not a big water person), they made the experience fun. This is definitely a must do if you're every in Limerick!

Great day on the river learning about Limerick, playing games and enjoying the sites. The instructors were very good and the equipment was top notch. Would definitely recommend as a once off trip or as an introduction to a new hobby.More
