Discover untouched nature and world renowned landmarks from the comfort of your own sea kayak. Our tours are run in a relaxed and safe manner where you will have ample time to take in the scenery and interesting history of the various paddle locations. All tours have a stop half way where you can enjoy a french press coffee and cookies in the forest whilst your guide fills you in on local characters, life on the Wild Atlantic Way and offers local knowledge on places to eat, accommodation and other sights to see in the area. No kayaking experience is necessary to take part in a tour and all equipment is supplied by us.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
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.

Great view to relax yourself at the lake. Really nice guide, good equipment, you really only need to chill during the tour. Wonderful experience, will come again!

Ruben and Sam were incredible tour guides. Really settled my nerves as a first time kayaker. I had the most amazing experience on this lake. I can't recommend this experience enough. Ruben's knowledge of the area is excellent. A very very interesting, enjoyable trip.

What a great kayaking experience we had with Reuben and Sam. Lough Gill is a special place for many reasons. The visit to Beezie’s Island was most memorable. We highly recommend Sligo Kayak tours, they are top notch in every way!

This was my second time booking the tour on Lough Gill and it was just as fantastic as the first time. A combination of things makes it wonderful, the location, the equipment but mainly the people. Each time, from the booking to the welcome and on to the tour has been amazing. The guides are so knowledgeable about not just kayaking, but also history, geography, ecology, the flora and fauna of the area and much, much more. Our group this time had an age range of 11 to 81 and everyone is still talking about the great time despite the fact that it was lashing and freezing! If that’s not a positive sign then I don’t know what is!

I went out with my family at Mullaghmore we hired the kayaks for an hour's paddle and we thoroughly enjoyed the time. We were given excellent advice before we got into our boats, about where to avoid along the beach. We picked a calm sunny day so we were very lucky. I would recommend this activity.

Our kayak trip was superb. Always safe but also exciting not knowing what’s ahead! Canoeing through reeds and untamed nature. Exquisite scenery and special lake island visit.
