Had a fantastic afternoon on the river with Duncan, having never kayaked before I was abit nervous beforehand but there was no need to be. Duncan puts you at ease from the beginning. Such an enjoyable few hours, couldn't recommend it more!

Hi! I am planning on becoming the first person to swim the entire length of the River Shannon this summer, but I am having a very hard time finding a map of the river that is very detailed. I am looking for one that shows docks and places to enter and exit the water. Do you have any suggestions on where I could obtain one or perhaps a personal favorite that you use? Thanks so much, Dean Hall
