Adventure Race Training Sessions

Have you signed up for an adventure race but you can’t even kayak in a straight line?

Don’t worry, Get West is here to set you straight.
At our Adventure Race Training Sessions, you can work on your speed, technique and stamina in a safe and supervised environment. With some light instruction and some dedication, you will be on your way to success in no time. These sessions are also ideal for anyone who has kayaked before and simply wishes to improve their general kayaking fitness.
All of our kayaks are sit-on-tops and are completely beginner friendly. No experience is necessary and you do not need to be able to swim to kayak successfully. We provide all necessary equipment.


We do Adventure Race Training on request, get in touch and tell us when your Race is and we can help you make a training plan.

 Long Distance Training Trips – “a real endurance test”

We also offer long distance training trips from the University of Limerick into Limerick City Centre, a journey of 8.5km. Ideal for putting the progress you’re making in the Adventure Race Training Sessions to the test, or as a once off test of your stamina and endurance. These trips run on an “on demand” basis and cost €40. As well as being a perfect training opportunity, these trips are also incredibly picturesque and peaceful.

"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!"
