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.

5🌟experience with Duncan from start to finish. Booking was effortless as was the morning of our outing. Made sure we were kitted out with everything we needed, explained a few simple ‘rules’ and got on the water for what my 14 year old son called one of the best things he’s done. Duncan’s calm and pleasant personality made for a very enjoyable morning and his professionalism was what you’d want when you’ve a 14 year old in tow. Hoping to get out again before the end of the season if we can.
Can’t recommend Duncan enough and I think the name of his business is very apt……’Give it a go’….you won’t regret it!

It was a lovely experience and Duncan the instructor was great. Only a couple of minutes outside of Gaway City which is handy.

I would definitely recommend it.

Lovely kayaking trip! So peaceful and meditative. Our amazing guide, Duncan, made us feel super safe and took us on a beautiful trip around the lake. We were fairly new to kayaking, but he taught us well and even gave us great technique advice, and we were up and running in no time. Thank you for a great trip. Very informative before the trip, and it was very easy to reschedule when the weather wasn’t there. I do recommend this!

Duncan was fantastic and I can’t recommend his kayaking trip enough. I went with my 13 year old in a double kayak which worked out great. Duncan was able to explain everything about using the kayak great and really matched our skill level well. The jackets he provided us kept us nice and dry. The scenery was stunning and I really appreciate how much Duncan was concerned with what we wanted to check out and do. I also really loved how personable and friendly he is and it was great to get to chat with him and learn from him all throughout our tour. I had already been recommended to Give It A Go from friends and will certainly be recommending this experience for anyone who might be visiting Galway

I had a great kayak trip with Give it a Go. Duncan did a great job of adjusting the trip to meet the group’s ability and finding interesting spots to take us.

A brilliant day out. Duncan was very friendly and knowlegeable, bringing us to historical markings that we hadnt heard of before. Lots of wildlife to see too. Duncan was very professional and had lots of options for us with wetsuits, bouyancy aids and kayak jackets if we needed them. Safety was very well covered too. 10/10.
