Leitrim (a short journey from Leitrim village) and planned to canoe on the canal as far as Acres Lake, 5 or 6 km to the north. When we arrived it was clear... More

Adrienne was so helpful and chose the perfect spot for us, after being sure to work out our level of skill and how we could fit in some time on the water with our other plans.... More

Canoeing in the River Bonet, Dromahair, was a real pleasure with the expert guidance of Adrienne and Graham. The weather co-operated and the four of us (2 adults and 2 children 10 and 12 - complete beginners) set off on a lovely paddle along the river to Lough Gill and back. We felt safe and comfortable in the canoes and... More

We spent a fabulous afternoon in the most beautiful of natural surroundings far from the sound of traffic and man-made noise. The surface of the River Bonnet was like glass and the tranquility of the setting made learning how to propel and steer the canoe easy and fun. Adrienne and Graham were both excellent teachers. My three sons (ranging in... More
