Spent a sunny evening on the corrib with a group from work and my 15 year old daughter. First time kayaking and had an amazing time. Duncan is a sound guy and has a really nice way of interacting with everyone, while at the same time supervising the group. Would definitely recommend and will definitely do it again.

My family and I visited Galway City Centre in the last week of August 2022 for my niece's 21st birthday.

As beautiful as the city itself is, we didn't just want to spend the whole weekend moving from pub to pub and wanted to do something a little more active and outdoorsy. We decided on "Give it a Go" Kayaking and weren't disappointed.

Our experienced guides, Duncan and James, were absolutely brilliant and couldn't do enough to make the experience as enjoyable as possible. They made everyone feel at ease from the outset (particularly those who were a bit apprehensive about going in the water !) and were really good fun to go out on the water with.

Menlo pier, where we all met up is only about a 10 min taxi ride from the city centre, which cost about €10 per car. The river corrib, which we kayaked along, is absolutely beautiful and the whole experience was really relaxing (just what you need to clear your head the morning after a big night!).

The age of our group ranged from 18 to 80 and we all had a brilliant time which is telling.

I couldn't recommend "Give it a Go" highly enough and in my opinion it is an absolute must when visiting Galway!!

We'll see you again Duncan!!

We has a great kayak tour around Dublin. We highly recommend for anyone who is looking for another way to see the city. The views were beautiful, the kayaking itself was very relaxing, and Duncan provided a lot of great information and recommendations. We would definitely recommend.

Fabulous evening kayak with Duncan. We went on a work outing, most of us not having kayaked much before. Duncan was very calm and it was so lovely to see the River Corrib from a different perspective.

What a day!!!. As a family of four in 2 doubles we had a fantastic trip along the Corrib river. A trip is only as good as it’s guide and Duncan and his little helper Susie did a amazing job. You are made very welcome and brought through a little crash course before you enter the water. Once in the water Duncan stays close by and keeps checking in with you and gives information on various points of interest along the river. There is no urgency and you basically go along at your own pace, even experienced kayakers will enjoy this trip. At about half way we stopped for a little break while still floating on the river and Duncan supplied the biscuits ( even if they are Jaffa cakes 😉) . We covered a very enjoyable 8km in the roughly 3 hours we were out. On the whole an absolutely fantastic experience and would highly recommend it for first timers and experienced.

We had such a fabulous morning out with Duncan. We had the river to ourselves and good to see Galway from a different perspective. We even got to see a kingfisher!!

It was my children's first time kayaking and they really enjoyed this experience. The River Corrib has crystal clear waters and its a very peaceful and relaxing environment, I had a 2 man kayak so while I paddled my child relaxed, allowing her hands to dangle over the sides of the kayak and allow the water to flow through her fingers. My teenager enjoyed being splashed by us, Ducan and James where very friendly, helpful and informative, we took a break and Ducan supplied jaffa cakes, I don’t usually like jaffa cakes but I really enjoyed these after our Kayak workout, nice touch, I would highly recommend this activity with GiveItAGo, their cool guys.

We went as a family of five out on the corrib with Duncan. We range in age from 15 -78. Duncan was excellent in guiding us through the basics and making us all feel at ease, making the experience as enjoyable as possible for us. He was very friendly and professional at all times. We had a great day and would highly recommend booking a kayaking trip with give it a go.

Really enjoyable kayaking trip with Duncan. Two adults and three teenagers ona damp saturday morning but the calmness of the Corrib was great. Duncan was excellent in getting us going on the water and gave some really good tips on how to do things better. Very informative about the locality and local wildlife. Will definitely return to do the downstream trip. Highly recommended
