Tubing on the River Shannon in Castleconnell

…the newest watersport activity to hit Limerick

Tubing down the magnificent River Shannon is a new adventure that we’ve introduced to Limerick to complement our popular kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding activities.

Lie back and chill out in a giant inflatable ring as you float down the river without a care in the world. Then let the water do all the hard work as you descend the Falls of Doonass amongst the many whitewater features on the Shannon. You will flow through the beautiful countryside, passing ancient ruins and wading herons on your easy but adrenaline inducing journey.

This is the perfect activity for groups, families and friends to be introduced to the joys of whitewater sports on the river Shannon.

Absolutely no experience is necessary. In fact, you don’t even need to be able to swim. The minimum age for this activity is 10 years old.

"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!"
