When planning your canoe trip itinerary there are a few things to bear in mind. All customers will transport themselves to the starting point beside the river, where we will meet and give a brief introduction This is followed by a demonstration and safety talk and then for a further 15 minutes or so we will bring you through the basic strokes in an area of calm, sheltered, flat water. After that the real adventure begins. All gear will be ready and waiting from the starting point. All canoeing gear is supplied and we can help out with your camping needs if you don’t have your own tent etc.
Participants can expect to paddle for four to five hours through scenic stretches down river. Options to finish in New Ross are available however this section is tidal so extra care and consideration are advisable.
