For a relaxing outdoor adventure on the River Barrow or River Nore, has the answer. Trips run daily in both Kilkenny City and Carlow Town. These trips are suitable for all, from the very young to the young at heart.

For an outdoor adventure for all the family, take an open boat trip on the beautiful River Barrow or River Nore. Take time to immerse yourself in nature and heritage, experiencing life as it was for the river folk of a bygone era.

There is something for all to see. Kids will enjoy spotting all manner of wildlife such as kingfishers, otters, dragon flies and the shoals of fish as they glide past the boat. For those with a busy lifestyle, its an opportunity to switch off the mobile phone and relax inches above the waterline, unwinding to a more soothing pace of life. Hear the tales and legends of the rivers boatmen and gently touch the cool waters they plied, while flowing through the ancient arteries of a once glacial Ireland.
