With the days getting longer and the weather getting warmer, we are so looking forward to getting back out on the river. At Get West, we offer a wide variety of team building activities to corporate groups, with one such activity being our Limerick City Kayak Tour, the Number 1 Outdoor Activity in Limerick on TripAdvisor. So, to find out more about kayaking for corporate groups, take a look below!
It is common knowledge that happy employees are the most productive and, just like here at Get West, happiness should be at the core of your company culture. We have found that a great way of ensuring that your employees are happy is by rewarding them with a fun day out, and where better than out in the middle of the spectacular River Shannon.
Kayaking for Corporate Groups
Proven to be very popular with corporate groups, our kayak tour incorporates incredible sights, fresh air, exercise, team bonding, some healthy competition and, of course, fun. Our experienced and qualified staff at Get West will guide you and your team right through the heart of Limerick City, soaking up the famous sites and fascinating history, including that of King John’s Castle. To keep everyone engaged and relaxed along the way, there will be plenty of games and challenges to enjoy.
Over the years, we have noticed how much of a success kayaking can be with corporate groups. It brings together all levels within a company, from the CEO to the entry level graduate, to combine their efforts and put their full trust in one another. Using the River Shannon for a team building activity really brings people out of their comfort zone, and encourages them to use alternative methods of communicating to achieve their common goal in the various team challenges; skills that will stand to them well back at the office.
These tours usually take approx. 2 hours, and don’t require you to have any kayaking experience nor the ability to swim. We have all the equipment you need; all we ask is that you bring your swimming togs, a spare pair of runners to wear in the kayak and a towel.
As tours are dependent on the tide, tour times vary from day to day, so to ensure a spot for your team this Summer, we ask that you have a few possible dates in mind when booking with us.

‘Meet and Kayak’ with the Clayton Hotel Limerick
We’ve also teamed up with the Clayton Hotel Limerick for a ‘Meet and Kayak’ package between May and October. This package includes arrival refreshments at the hotel’s stunning riverside location before heading to one of the comfortable meeting rooms for a productive team meeting. After that, it’s time to hit the water for an hour to put some fresh air into this team day out while experiencing Limerick City from a fresh and exciting perspective out on the beautiful River Shannon. When the kayak tour is finished, it’s a short stroll back to the hotel where you get to dry off & warm up while enjoying a delicious 2-course lunch.
