Kayaking on the Shannon Had a great and fun outing on the River Shannon with Aoife and Rory...kids and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We got to do a scavenger hunt and play fun games while out kayaking and riding 'cruise boat waves'. Would definitely recommend this activity to others. Good exercise too! A lovely way to be at one with nature and the Shannon.…

The PaddleShack is by far the best experience in Carrick on Shannon! We had an amazing day with Rory and Aoife!! I was quite anxious about kayaking in a solo kayak and they were both so lovely, I felt instantly reassured by Rory and felt so safe throughout the entire trip! Their experience and personalities just make them a joy to be around.. would definitely recommend to anyone interested in trying it out - the views are amazing also... The PaddleShack is by far the best experience in Carrick on Shannon! Great fun!…
