Let us take you exploring along the Shannon River with our premium Kayaking experience. Perfect for friends, couples and colleagues that want an active endeavour while discovering the bewitching landscape of County Leitrim. Our expert instructors will gently steer you along, while you discover the idyllic comfort of a Sit-on-top Kayak.
