We enjoyed a fantastic day out yesterday kayaking along the Corrib. Jim was informative, helpful and most importantly full of fun! A great activity for all abilities with a chance to see Galway from a different perspective.

I did two trips on the Corrib with Jim, one from Lisheehageeha and one from Menlo Pier, both were excellent. Its a good idea to bring a change of clothes in the unlikely event of getting wet.More

Thanks for the review Maurice. Glad you enjoyed them. The mid Corrib tour from Keekil/kilbeg is a super tour, different in character to the Menlo Tours. Only drawback is that is a bit more weather dependent due to the open water nature of the lake....More
