Mid Ireland Adventure

Relax your body and unwind your mind with a Stand Up Paddle Board Safari or Kayaking Tour on the majestic river Shannon or Grand Canal. Set out from our riverside base and explore the same waterways that the Vikings navigated in the 10th century.

Located in Banagher on the Shannon and in Kinnitty village on the foothills of the glorious Slieve Bloom mountains in Co Offaly, we offer a wide range of adventure filled activities from guided Hiking tours to Archery workshops, Stand Up Paddle Board and Kayak safaris.

Our passion is the great outdoors so let us kick start your adventure today!
