    A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon. The safety instructions and demonstration before we sat into the kayaks were excellent, along with lots of additional tips shared on an individual basis over the afternoon, which really enhanced the trip. A fun way to experience the two water bodies, by starting on the River Corrib and then moving out onto the lake.
