Boating on the river on a glorious summer Sunday, what could be nicer? Mike and Gerry were so laid back, patient and knowledgeable that they made the experience unforgettable. Seeing swans protecting their cygnet, sandmartins darting furiously overhead, ducks with tiny ducklings scurrying away from us, herons taking flight, a cow cooling off in the middle of the river and a horse standing peacefully knee deep in cold water in Inistiogue, all added to our experience. Food tasted better than ever while picnicking near Dysart Castle. Kayaks racing past spurred us on to paddle harder. All in all, a boat trip of a lifetime, right on our doorstep.

Fantastic tour by Mike on open canoes and best way to experience the beauty of a historical area surrounded by natural beauty. Thomastown to Inishtigue (sp) is an amazing stretch of the river Nore. You can see why the Norse and later British landholders set up their castles and demesne here. Mike was a great guide on the day pointing out the elusive kingfishers and other flora and fauna, and had knowledge about all the other landmarks; houses, bridges, etc that create the backdrop to this stunning area.

Thanks to Mike for providing a much needed escape for our family of 2 adults and 2 boys of 8 and 11yrs. We absolutely loved it. Peace and calm, beautiful scenery & wildlife, plenty of litte rapid to jizz things up and a few fishermen to dodge along the way. Lots of fun and craic. No experience required, Mike is well able to instill confidence in his crew. About 4 hours in total, didn't want to leave when it was time to get out. We look forward to another trip soon.
