'The Irish Times Best Day Out in Ireland' contest names its top 5 !
Our 14 day Ireland vacation begun with 3 days canoeing down the river Barrow. A true highlight! Start at Millford Park, end in St. Mullin's. The scenery on... read more the river is beautiful, calm and sometimes quite remote. At the locks we met walkers who stopped to watch us and often even gave a helping hand. Everyone was very friendly and we had a few enjoyable chats with locals and fellow tourists alike. Nathan was a great provider! Organisation was very easy. We got all the gear in good condition. Short but good introduction to the locks, valuable info on where to get picked up in the evenings (we did not camp at the riverside). When I had to confess that I lost the lock key, he stayed calm an his only concern was how to get us another one. (fortunately another group of canoers had taken the key with them and gave it back to us when we met again) Thanks Nathan for enabling this awesome experience! Christian from Switzerland …
