boating or canoe/kayak in Longford

Can anyone provide us with information or internet link to boat cruises or canoeing/kayaking for day or half day near Longford around 10/10/2014. Any ideas or advice would be greatly welcome. This would be part of our two week driving tour so it doesn't have to be Longford if there are better choices. Thanks for your help!

See if anything here helps:

If you can't rent for one day, then, consider The Viking Tour from the town of Athlone, not a million miles from Longford:

You might also look at Carrick-on-Shannon, in Co Leitrim as an alternative option:

Greetings Joe,

Here is another website to try.

www.fishinginireland.info/boathire/index.htm

To the right of page> Under Find> Boat rental> click on link.

Boat Hire will pop up.

click on Boat hire on Irish Lakes & Rivers.

I hope this helps.
