Had a fantastic time kayaking along the Ardmore shoreline as the sun was setting. Got to explore some caves and the wreck of the barge crane Samson. Our instructor/guide Ronan was both super friendly and knowledgeable of the history and geography of the area. Highly recommended.

A group of 8 of us (all late 20s/early 30s) went kayaking on the blackwater with Ronan and Nuge and had a fantastic time. The equipment and training was all perfect and even first time kayakers in the group felt confident and happy by the time we were ready to set off. The trip was beautiful with gorgeous scenery and...

We've been out a few times with the guys from Ardmore Adventures and they are always brilliant. This time around Ronan and Bernie took 11 kids out kayaking for two hours - some of the kids were quite experienced kayakers but others were complete novices and all of them had a great time. We were able to walk up the... More

Thank you for the great review. Myself and Bernie had a great time with the group as they where so enthusiastic for kayaking. Great aerial photo taken from the Hermitage, it's nice to see all the colours from the cliff. We look forward to seeing you out on the water again in the future. Regards Ronan More

I had a great time kayaking with the Ardmore adventure team, myself and my daughter booked a 2 hour session along with some friends, they supplied all the gear we needed double kayak. We played games in the sea (some times falling out of the boat) but the fun was getting back in. Great instructors, friendly and professional. Will definitely... More

A group of 4 all in our late 20s went kayaking with Josh. We had a ball. The water was fabulous and we saw the biggest barrel Jellyfish I've ever seen. Brilliant sights and great fun. I was worried sea-kayaking would be tough on the arms since I'd never done it before but it was really easy. I can't wait... More

Our group went out paddle boarding on a fantastic trip with the guys. Brilliant morning, excellent equipment, tuition and local knowledge. All with the added bonuses of great weather and good price. We will all be back next time we are over in Ardmore. Cheers again.

Had a lovely morning kayaking last Friday. The staff are all very friendly. Our instructor Cillian was fun and knowledgeable. We really felt like we were in good hands. He was patient and instructions were very clear. The views and cliffs look wonderful from the water. We were also lucky enough to see seals, huge jellyfish, starfish and lots of... More

We booked a kayak lesson ( our first ) with Ardmore adventures . Niall took us out for 2 hours and it was magic , he took the time to get to know us and explain all the safety aspects then brought us from cove to cave etc ... we will certainly be back. Many thanks

Thank you for your review. Hopefully this magical experience will be the foundation stone for you to keep up the kayaking. We are always very conscious that we are often the first point of contact with outdoor sports for people and we strive to make it a positive experience. We look forward to seeing you again in the future More
