“Great day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2011

Went on half day kayak with a group of friends on Lough Oughter. We stopped at the castle and then continued onto Killykeen and had a picnic there. We got to see loads of wildlife while out on the kayak such as swans, herons and so on. Its a great way of spending a few hours. The facilities at the centre are spotless and modern. Way nicer than other activity places i have been to and the staff were so helpful and friendly.

“Cavan Canoeing is highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2011

We spent an afternoon with 3 adults and 5 kids on Lough Oughter. The staff at Cavan Canoeing couldnt have been more helpful. Rental rates were reasonable and several teenagers helped to get the kayaks off the racks and into the water. The weather was gorgeous, the waterway system is really spectacular and we will definitely return to explore more next time we are in Cavan.

“Get exercise, have fun and take in the views..... what more could you want”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2009

I am a regular at Cavan Canoeing and took part last year in a 3 day trip from Enniskillen to Carratraw. The facilities are excellent and you can hire canoes at a very affordable price. The centre is surrounded by lakes with spectacular views of scenery and nature as it is a protected area. Really enjoy renting the canoes and heading off camping for a few nights. They are also doing courses at the moment for beginners and kids. There is a qualified instructor on site and they are also running a course in the local swimming pool for safety/swimming/how to get out of canoe if capsizes. Looking forward more recently to a treasure hunt which is on in October. They run events each couple of weeks. A really enjoyable way to spend you free time and get healthy. Highly recommended.
