Guided White Water Spills & Thrills in Ireland

Location Carlow Ireland, Ireland, Europe
Experience unavailable

Overview

The longest of Ireland’s famed Three Sisters, the Barrow is a delightfully scenic waterway, once the main transport route for barges loaded with barrels of Guinness. The surrounding area, populated by herons, kingfishers, otters and swans, is largely undeveloped, leaving passers-by free to let their minds wander, contemplating perhaps the beauty of the Irish countryside as a gentle current takes them along. Equipped with a high-quality wetsuit and canoe, you’ll paddle along at your own pace, stopping to take a breather or a photograph whenever you feel the urge.

Duration: up to 3 hours

Availability depends on seasonality and number of participants. Bookings can not be made for the same day. Please read our TnC’s.

  • Safety chat before getting on the water
  • Demonstration – how to hold the paddle and what strokes to us
  • 10 minutes warm up in the Old Harbour – We start off in an area of flat calm water to learn the basic strokes, build your confidence and then off we go.
  • Rising up through a lock system typically found on a canal which gives us access to the river.
  • On the trail there are weirs and rapids so expect a few spills and thrills but nothing scary. There are old lock keepers cottages, scenic waterfalls, and old castle and eel weirs and of course breathtaking views.
  • We then transfer back onto the Barrow Navigation using the lock and head back up the river to where we started.
