His knowledge of the kayaking lakes and rivers are excellent so he'll can bring you somewhere sheltered if... More

We were a little worried we might be cold on a cold Irish afternoon but layers of the provided wetsuit, anorak, kayak skirt and life jacket ensued we stayed warm and dry.... More

Jim is a fantastic guide with great craic and is a genuinely fun & lovely person. Will... More

My 12 year old son and I had a brilliant day out with Jim on Lough Corrib. Would highly recommend this for anyone visiting Galway. It has given us the motivation to join a local kayak group back in Scotland.
