Denis was affable and very helpful when organising the trip. On the water Dennis was knowledgeable and a brilliant guide, and we benefited from his excellent knowledge of the river and surrounding areas. Couldn’t recommend more.

Had a fabulous relaxing time kayaking down the river backwater this weekend with Denis. Breathtaking views, highly recommend it! Denis was a great guide, safety conscious and accommodating.

Denis and Tiny brought our group down the Suir, and we found them thoroughly professional, good craic and well organised. It was a tough ask to get 20 odd people down the river but no bother to them. Would recommend as a family outing, corporate...More
