What can I say, this kayaking trip was the highlight of our staycation in Galway. Duncan was a true gent who gave us a run through of all things kayaking and got us as much time as possible on the water. We felt really relaxed and comfortable on the water, chatting about anything and everything. The setup is safe and enjoyable and I would thoroughly recommend it to anybody looking for a relaxing escape from the city. A+

Good morning Cian,
thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience on Tripadvisor. It has been great to get back on the water, enjoying the fun of kayaking and taking in the scenery again.
I'm going to keep an ear out for that story you told me to see if it ends up on the podcast !

All the best,
Duncan

Fantastic kayaking trip on the Corrib. It was so relaxing and tranquil which I wasn't expecting. It was the highlight of my recent visit to Connemara. Duncan was an amazing guide. Highly recommend 'Give it a Go'

we are a family of four 2 adults two children aged 9 and 12. We arrived early and tired from a not so good nights sleep in the hotel but our mood was changed straight away by Duncan who is a fun knowledgeable guide who went out of his way to make sure we had a great experience . Myself and my husband done kayaking once before in Wexford this was a completely different experience in all the right ways. We were given brand new dry clean wet suits jackets life vests all in excellent condition.
My nine year old daughter said her arms were sore but she had an amazing time she loved the jaffa cakes that Duncan brought along for us to eat. She is talking about going back for her Birthday.
My 12 year old said the instructor was very friendly and helpful when we kept getting stuck in the reeds and is also talking about going again.Highly recommend Give it a go you wont find a better kayaking experience. Dont have one bad thing to say.Thanks so much Duncan you made our Morning and thanks for fitting us in at late notice, feel free to share our photos. Steph Mark Megan and April. Sallins co.kildare

Excellent half day kayak trip on the Corrib with Duncan. Very knowledgeable and a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommended. Even to local Galway people, get out there and see your locality from the water, an entirely different angle and perspective.
