We took a night kayaking tour with Get West - Rory & Aoife are wonderful hosts. The tour was just superb from start to finish. Over 2 hours we kayaking The Shannon & Abbey Rivers at twilight. Highly recommended them & the experience of seeing Limerick for the water. The highlight was passing under the bridges. A most for all ages.

Finally got out on the river in Limerick with Get West for some kayaking. Only took me 31 years to get around to it! A fun adventure activity for locals and tourists alike, with the majestic King John's Castle just one of the many sites to see from a different perspective. The instructors were really sound and know their stuff inside out. Honestly, an experience not to be missed!

Great time with Rory on the river Shannon. We were a bit of nervous but he's very professional and give us tranquility to do the tour along the river. It's another way to discover the city and also have a super fun and relaxing time. Thank you for the amazing experience!

As the title indicates, Limerick you truly are a Lady! Went on the last night time excursion of the season with myself and wife.. My wife had booked the activity weeks previous and to be quite frank when the day arrived on a cold and wet October the last place I thought I would find any pleasure was on the River Shannon.

So with hesitation and trepidation we made our way to the Limerick boat club, only guided by blind faith in my wife, who always seems to have a knack in finding wonderfully obscure events.

So our adventure began! From the moment we got into the water we were guided by Mark, Amy & Paul. All extremely personable friendly and engaging. Mark led the tour giving us the history of Limerick with a passion and enthusiasm I've not seen since my days in Mary I College,, given by Maura Cronin, the héad of the history department.

We are both from Limerick and were humbled to hear such rich and varied stories from our past, so much that it gave us a newfound sense of admiration and pride in our native city.

The kayaking itself is extremely safe, and fun and enjoyable. I imagined being soaked and wet and cold, whilst the cold bit was inevitable in October, we managed to stay surprisingly dry, which allowed us to enjoy the trip even more. Looking up at Limerick from the River at night is a beautiful experience. You could be in any city in the world. Yet this is Limerick, not cluttered by a mass of ugly buildings or infrastructure but rather a series of landmarks and History. And when you hear Mark talk about it you are instantly transported back in time, so much that you can't help being left with a feeling the Limerick is a fantastic city. Well done in this regard Mark you're a credit to Get West.

Thanks also to Amy and Paul who were always in sight and provided us with good guidance and company also. Its safe to say we thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will without doubt be back again.

Ken & Claire.

A group of 17 of us went Kayaking on the River Inny for my sister's hen. The three lads from Go West were brilliant, they set us up quickly, did a good safety lesson beforehand and they were very supportive throughout the trip down to Ballymahon, most of the group did really well while a few of us (me) fell in a lot, they were very patient with me which was helpful and reassuring. Thanks a million to Eoin, Alex and Mark!! I'm going to get onto Get West soon to book some team building exercises for the company I work for.

Was nevey in a kayak before but the instruction is really good and great confidence in the safety protocols & equipment....it worked!
A great way to experience the power of the river and the views at the same time i.e. the bridges.

Hi and Thank You for your very kind review. We always aim to have the best and safest equipment available and keep it in good condition. I am delighted you enjoyed your trip. Yes, being able to go under the bridges in Limerick City is a great novelty that very few people get to enjoy. I look forward to seeing you again soon.

We went on the October night kayak tour and had an amazing experience. The guides were great both at showing us how to kayak and “raft” and were incredibly knowledgeable about the city. Having lived in Limerick my whole life, I found the fascinating and now know more about the city and it’s history than ever before! In addition, we lucked out and it was a clear night and the water was quite calm. It was really cool to see the city from the perspective of the river.

I am 61 and I have just completed my 5 weeks kayak training with Paul, Jack, Brid and Mark from GetWest on the river Shannon In Limerick. I can't believe I went to every session. The team were so encouraging and made me feel so special. They cared for me as if I was their very own granny on the river. They provided me with wetsuit, buoyancy aid, boat and paddle. All i had to do was bring myself, a change of clothes, an old pair of runners and a towel. When I got tired paddling, Jack towed me back to basecamp. I never had so much fun, or dreamed I could do this at my age. I'm delighted to be now considering the 10k paddle challenge on 20 August. I'd love to see more women my age on the day! If we're going to live longer as statistics say we are, we may as well enjoy ourselves down by the river. My fitness level has improved dramatically already. Thanks to everyone at GetWest. My advice, contact Paul straight away for a place on the summer training programme, or, if you just want to go for a paddle.
Highly recommended for all age groups.

Hi Helen, Thank you for your very kind words, you added to the fun on the course so it wouldn't have been the same without you. See you at the finish line of the Blueway 10K Mark
