Safari Canoe Trail on River Barrow – Carlow Autumn Walking Festival

As part of Carlow Autumn Walking Festival 6th-8th of October 2017,      

we are having a Safari Canoe Trail on the River Barrow. 

Families need look no further if it’s adventure and fun you want for your great day out




This trail is designed with complete beginners in mind and are led by qualified instructors who have years of adventure experience to call on.


Along the way experience the river from a completely different perspective. There is usually plenty of wildlife including otters & kingfishers and learn all about the 220 year old navigation that was used to transport Ireland’s favourite tipple Guinness around the South-East.


No experience necessary, all you need is a bunch of friends and time to chill. 


Starting point: Clashganny Lock House at 10.30am and finishing up in Graiguenamanagh mid-afternoon. 



‘A very special adventure’

We had a great morning with Charlie who is an enthusiast for what he does. The whole thing was a great mix of excitement and serenity. Charlie was good at instructing you on what to do and building your confidence. It is a very beautiful section of the Barrow River and there is interesting history about the river and the canal system here that he tells you about as you go along. It was a great way to feel connected to the natural beauty of Ireland and we did it after a hectic few days in Dublin and I felt it really helped us relax into our holiday in a good way.
