Or open boating as it’s also known is a little more relaxed than Kayaking and is great for families and expeditions as they can carry a number of people and equipment. On a relaxing open boat trip you will get to visit some of the many islands surrounding the beautiful waters of the river Shannon and Kilglass Lakes.

This activity is the perfect way to explore the scenic lakes surrounding Shannon River Adventure. You can also fit in a trip to our nearby island and stop for some camp-fire food and explore the densely forrested terrain.
