Was ihr unternehmen werdet

We will meet you at the shores of Lough Gill, one of the most famous and beautiful lakes in Ireland. Fabled in the poetry of W.B.Yeats for the Lake Isle of Innisfree, we will prepare you for a trip that will surprise and delight you at each step along the way.
After an initial chat about the trip plan, and learning a little about you, we will get you ready for the journey, giving you the equipment that you will need, and showing you the techniques required for the outing.Don't worry, you won't need to be a super athlete, just a regular level of fitness will be fine!
We will then launch onto the Garavogue river, a slow moving river that is the gateway to Lough Gill (meaning the "bright" or "white" lake in Irish) and make our way to the entrance of the lake.Depending on the time of year we will pass a variety of water birds, from whooper swans to kingfisher and maybe even see a shy otter chasing after equally shy salmon.
We will travel through mixed features, from alluvial forests to old sessile oak woods, all contained within an area designated as a Special Area of Conservation and make our way to one of the many remote islands that are in the lake.There we will stop for a walk around, take some time to reflect on the history and folk lore of the area and make ourselves a hot drink and a pastry.
After a break, we will head back towards our starting point.
Other things to note
You will need to be comfortable with being on the water.
No previous kayaking experience is needed.
Moderate level of fitness required.
Bring clothing for all conditions including light rainwear.
It is best if you can layer up and down to remain comfortable.

The west coast of Ireland has some of the most beautiful and intense sea kayaking in the world.I have been immersed in the ocean firstly as a surfer and more recently as a sea kayaker, for the past 30 years or so.During this time I have kayaked in all sorts of conditions, and in many locations from the very top of Donegal, right down to the south west tip of Cork.
I am currently a British Canoeing qualified 4 star Sea Kayak Leader, International Sea Kayaking Guide Association trained aspirant guide, accredited Failte Ireland Coastal and Marine guide as well as having a Remote Emergency Care level 3 first aid qualification.
I have taught thousands of people to surf as I am also a ISA level 2 surf coach.Most recently I spent 2019 working as a kayak guide in Norway, showing travellers around the Hardangerfjord in Southern Norway

We had an amazing experience kayacking on Lough Gill in Sligo. Both Gerry and Valli are great friendly hosts and kept us updated on the weather throughout the day to make sure we missed the rain! . Luckily we were able to head out in the evening as the rain stopped. Gerry was a great guide and made both myself and my partner were at ease throughout the trip! Would highly recommend this experience to anyone including beginners. Really nice thing to do as a couple as they provide double kayacks. This was defiantly the highlight of our trip and great value for money! Will definitely be back.

Wonderful experience! Valli was extremely generous with her time and took some great pics for us. A really special way to see Lough Gill and learn how to paddle. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting the area. Always felt very comfortable on the water and knew we were in safe hands.

We had a wonderful time in Lough Gill. Valli was an excellent guide - she was friendly, informative and welcoming. It was brilliant hearing about the characters of the past that resided in Lough Gill. It was a wonderful experience and so much fun!! A must for anyone visiting Sligo and looking for something active.

This is something that you need to do before you die. Valli & Gerry are the best hosts ever!!! We had an amazing time with them. They gave us the correct equipment to keep us safe and dry. They were very professional with the COVID-19 regulations and we felt very good and safe. We were kayaking all around the lake and we had an amazing coffee break in the middle of nowhere! Valli is a great chef as well!! We really loved the experience and we definitely recommend it! I hope we can do it again sometime!
