River Tours

We do river tours all year round for groups of 4+ . Starting from the end of Lahinch beach or from the Falls hotel in Ennistymon.Its a one way tour either starting in Lahinch at the end of the beach where the river meets the sea at the bridge, Tours take one and half hours to 2 hours  finishing at the bottom of the falls in ennistymon or the opposite way depending on wind and tides.{its alot easier to go with the wind} .Its a great river for all ages, all levels of experience and is a very relaxing and safe river for kayaking.

I can do tours for  groups on stand up paddle boards (SUP) or bring a paddle board on the kayak trip so every one can have a go.
