“Get yourselves to Ardmore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2016

Just spent a beautiful, sunny evening Kayaking. I was well overdue a visit to Ardmore Adventures. Ronan was very welcoming and our instructor Killian was great, full of chat and had interesting information on the local sites. The bay is just gorgeous, very calm and clear. The choppy sea outside the bay was more than manageable. First time out and I felt totally safe. Hats off to my girl for picking out this activity!

“Unforgettable experience ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2016 via mobile

Killian & Danny led a stand-up paddle boarding session around the foot of the cliffs. The instructors were very professional, knowledgeable and fun. During the trip we meet numerous basking sharks. Meeting these gentle giants in the wild was a truly unforgettable experience. We also got the opportunity to explore the sea caves and saw the wreck of an old ship. We also got the opportunity to do some cliff jumping. I'd recommend Ardmore adventures to everybody. Thanks guys.

“Castles and caves by water”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2016

Killian did a nice job of showing us a few castles from the Blackwater river, and after lunch, we saw a small part of the shoreline from the ocean. The copper mine was a treat! For so early in the season, we were provided excellent equipment, and were quite comfortable. Thank you as well to Ronan, for the quality gear used.

“Relaxing day on the Blackwater. ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 February 2016 via mobile

We had an amazing time cruising down the Blackwater with Cillian. It was a great way to kick-start our morning. It was a great experience and I'm looking forward to going back in a few months to try the sea kayaking. Ronan and Cillian couldn't have been more helpful and I couldn't recommend them highly enough.
