A Relaxing Hen Activity in Limerick, Athlone & Carrick on Shannon

Okay, so rapids and drops might not be quite what you were after for a hen weekend. Craving something a little bit more relaxing? Why not join us for a laid back journey along a calm stunning stretch of river, lake or canal on your very own sit on top kayak.

Along the way, you will take part in hen activities and challenges, guaranteed to have everyone laughing and in party spirits. All safety gear and equipment is provided. No previous experience is required and there is no need to be able to swim.

An easy going kayak cruise in the fresh air – a perfect opportunity to catch up and chat to your fellow hens – I can tell you that there’s just nothing quite like it.

"Best hen party activity!

I would definitely recommend that everyone has a go at this. It is absolutely fantastic and great crack. We were a group of 9 women, all of which were quite nervous but as soon as you get into the kayak and paddle off the excitement takes over. Our instructors Alex and Paul were professional, understanding and absolutely hilarious which made us feel more at ease and safe. This was definitely a memorable experience that I won't be forgetting anytime soon. Grab some friends or family and try it out, I guarantee you won't be disappointed."
