Here at the Paddle Shack, we are proud to be part of Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands. A folksy piece of the beautiful Irish landscape, where you control the pace.

Whether it be slow and restful like a trek in the forest, or adventurous and exciting like a day on one of our Kayaks. Whichever you choose, you’ll take in the sights, smells and sounds of Ireland’s peaceful rural communities and idyllic countryside.

There is a treasure trove of unspoiled and sublime countryside surrounding the town, waiting for you to explore!

Seek Out Magical Places

You’ll journey the length of the River Shannon and the Beara Breifne Way. Discovering secret forest walking adventures and gentle river exploration. With the sound of birdsong, trickling brooks and calm as your own personal soundtrack.

At the Paddle Shack, we will take you, your family and friends exploring the majestic and tranquil river Shannon. Deep in the Hidden Heartlands. Choosing either a Kayak or a SUP paddleboard, you’ll allow the River Shannon’s mellow current to pull you along taking in the bewitching landscape of County Leitrim.
