The Paddle Shack run bespoke guided sit-on-top kayaking and stand-up-paddle boarding tours on the majestic River Shannon. Visitors can experience the hustle and bustle of the river at the heart of the market town of Carrick-on-Shannon or the serene backwaters and lagoons away from the Navigation, or both!
All tours are led by Rory, who has been paddling for over 15 years and he is helped out by his wife Aoife who has been paddling for 8 years! All equipment is provided for each tour. No experience is necessary however a basic level of fitness is required. A wetsuit is not necessary but can be provided at no extra cost. There are no refreshments included. Hot showers are available on site at a cost of €2. The experience takes approximately 2 hours.
