Castleconnell Whitewater – Beginners and Improvers

At Get West we regularly run beginner and improver river trips on a Grade 2 stretch of the River Shannon as it passes through the village of Castleconnell. This is a great trip to boost your skills and build your confidence at kayaking with just the right amount of excitement thrown in.

If you’ve a party coming up, our beginner trips are also a great day out for all occasions. No experience is necessary. Please contact us for group bookings.

Country to City River Cruise

The Shannon River is a beautiful area for a relaxing paddle. We run a nice easy river cruise from the placid waters of the Shannon Fields to the City Centre. Why not join us, and soak up the fresh air and stunning scenery. No experience is necessary, and a basic level of fitness is all that’s required.

"Well worth a visit! Group of ten of us went on the Limerick City historical kayak tour. The guys working here are lovely, gave us lots of info on the city and made us play hilarious games. We all jumped off the side of the river after our trip! It was great fun!"
