My boyfriend originally booked us in for sea kayaking, the weather wasn't super cooperative (massive waves!) so the guys changed the plan for a kayak down the Blackwater River. Both Ronan and Cillian were great, and very entertaining. I would highly recommend Ardmore Adventures for any outdoor pursuits, hands down!

We went on a family kayaking session, 2 adults and a 5 and a half yr old. Booking was easy, we just called into the centre, and all the staff we encountered were pleasant and friendly. Dad and child had never kayaked before, and shared a 2 seat boat, with a paddle each. The session lasted about 2 hours and... More

Brill staff and an amazing experiance, not to be missed! Went out on a beautiful day with guide Killian and explored the numerous caves, coves and crevices of the stunning Ardmore coastline-plus a bit of spontaneous coastering just to cool down! Killian was a proffessional instructor whilst making sure we were always safe and having a good time. Would definately... More

Seven of us (ranging in age from 20's to 50's) had a marvellous evening paddling with Ardmore Adventures recently. The company is based right at the beach in Ardmore so a perfect location for outdoor adventures. Killian and Declan were excellent kayaking guides, very friendly, informative and safety conscious. Any of us that were the slightest bit nervous about entering... More

Had a fantastic time kayaking along the Ardmore shoreline as the sun was setting. Got to explore some caves and the wreck of the barge crane Samson. Our instructor/guide Ronan was both super friendly and knowledgeable of the history and geography of the area. Highly recommended.

A group of 8 of us (all late 20s/early 30s) went kayaking on the blackwater with Ronan and Nuge and had a fantastic time. The equipment and training was all perfect and even first time kayakers in the group felt confident and happy by the time we were ready to set off. The trip was beautiful with gorgeous scenery and...

We've been out a few times with the guys from Ardmore Adventures and they are always brilliant.
