Kayak and SUP Tours Kilkenny

By Riverbend Adventures
About
We are life time paddlers, sharing our passion, incorporating fun, learning and awareness of river and its surrounds . Our customers get personal attention and feel very safe and love our tours which are adapted to peoples energy and ability. You will paddle double kayaks up and back down through Kilkenny and see historical buildings which dominate the the City skyline. The tour can include white water paddling over a weir, playing in the rapids if that is of interest. If you prefer to stay dry, that's your choice of course and we do provide over-trousers to keep you pretty dry. If you prefer, one of our guides can paddle the double kayak with you for extra stability to ensure that we maximise your enjoyment and safety. Visual highlights include Kilkenny Castle, The Tholsel, St Francis Abbey, the old home of Smithwick's Brewery and St Canice's Cathedral. Hear about the importance of the Nore to Kilkenny and its milling history for centuries.

      Great experience
      Did a paddle forward clinic - Excellent day - was put on a paddle machine to have my form analysed- got great tuition - then on the river to put it into practice- had a lovely paddle through some weirs - learned quiet a few river techniques along the way- Roger and Mike were fantastic and the soup and sandwiches were a welcome treat! Looking forward to my next riverbend adventure!

    Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
    Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
    When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
    Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my sea kayak training and trips on the coast with Roger, he's an excellent instructor and wealth of knowledge. The Copper Coast is a stunning part of Ireland and well worth a visit with Riverbend Adventures.
