We went for a 2 hour kayak lesson on the glorious Blackwater this week. Steve was a great teacher and We all got the hang of it pretty quickly so were able to really enjoy being on the river. Highlight was our 10 year old getting to kayak alone for the final stretch. And seeing a salmon leap for the first time! We loved every minute (even tho my canoe capsized in a current!!) and will be back for more.

Great time had by all. After a quick practice we set off downstream from lismore to cappoquin. Great to see the river teaming with wildlife from birds to fish jumping and nearly landing in the boat. Stephen are guide was great fun looked after everyone really well. Got soaked but that all added to the experience. Will definetly do this again

Great trip down the beautiful Blackwater River with Stephen on a sunny day. The weather was sunny, and the view down the river was amazing. Just enough rapids to be fun, but mostly the scenery of Ireland from a water vantage. Really appreciated the photos Stephen took during our trip, and the start from the field in front of the castle was the perfect start to the paddling experience. if you're looking for something different, scenic, and fun - this tour was the perfect fit. Oh - any by the way - you're going to get wet!

Met the Guide Dennis near Lismore castle where we started off. As a beginner found his instructions brilliant and our trip got off to a brilliant start. The tour was brilliant with great knowledge of the local history and wildlife. I loved every minute of it .
