  • Galway City: Kayaking on the Corrib River

    1. Galway City: Kayaking on the Corrib River

    Set off along the River Corrib to the largest lake in Ireland with a small group of other adventurers and a knowledgeable instructor. This 3-hour kayaking trip is the perfect way to take in the natural wonders around you.   The River Corrib runs through the center of Galway City, connecting Lough Corrib to the sea. At 170 square meters, Lough Corrib is the largest lake in the Republic of Ireland with more than 1,000 islands and islets to explore. Come take part in a mix of open-water paddling, island hopping, navigating rocky and reedy channels, and observing nature. All the while, you’ll be treated to stunning vistas and amazing views from a unique angle. When you're finished, enjoy a hot drink to warm up.

    A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon. The safety instructions and demonstration before we sat into the kayaks were excellent, along with lots of additional tips shared on an individual basis over the afternoon, which really enhanced the trip. A fun way to experience the two water bodies, by starting on the River Corrib and then moving out onto the lake.
