We, a family group of 4, did a trip on the Barrow with Cliff. It was a great trip. It's amazing how beautiful the river is, even when it is so close to a town. We saw kingfishers - always a treat. Cliff was a great host and guide. It's a ideal excursion in these difficult times as it's outside and small numbers. It was just the 4 of us and Cliff. We hope to take his Kilkenny trip in the next few weeks. I would thoroughly recommend this for a outing.

My family of 6 and our friends a family of 4 went on a boat trip with Cliff from Carlow along the river barrow. Cliff has a great personality and is a great storyteller. Really enjoyed the trip. The waterways manager Liam kindly left us through a lough. We saw lots of river wildlife. It was a very enjoyable experience and great for all the family. Would highly recommend this outing.

Sometimes its hard to find something new and different to do when doing a staycation in your home county. The boat trip was very good fun for all ages. Most importantly there was excellent distancing and hand hygiene practices. I was trying to nearby excursion. We will definitely be going on another of their tours.
