Kayaking – A Fun & Unique Hen Activity in the heart of Limerick City

For a Limerick hen party with a difference, join us for a kayaking adventure right through Limerick City Centre. On this spectacular journey, you will discover much about Limerick’s heritage and its iconic buildings as you paddle through the historic heart of the city to King John’s Castle, on your very own sit on top kayak (or stand up paddleboard).

Along the way, our friendly and fun guides will entertain and engage you in a variety of hen games and activities which are a fantastic way to get everyone chatting and laughing and to ensure that everyone is as relaxed and comfortable as possible while kayaking along.

If there are any extra daring hens amongst you, they can top off the journey with a thrilling pier jump into the mighty River Shannon.

No prior kayaking experience is necessary and you do not need to be able to swim to participate fully in this activity. We guarantee that there is no better way to experience Limerick City than from the stunning River Shannon on one of our hen party experiences.

"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."
