Experience description

The longest of Ireland’s famed Three Sisters, the Barrow is a delightfully scenic waterway, once the main transport route for barges loaded with barrels of Guinness. The surrounding area, populated by herons, kingfishers, otters and swans, is largely undeveloped, leaving passers-by free to let their minds wander, contemplating perhaps the beauty of the Irish countryside as a gentle current takes them along. Equipped with a high-quality wetsuit and canoe, you’ll paddle along at your own pace, stopping to take a breather or a photograph whenever you feel the urge.

You’ll camp overnight by the side of the Barrow, free to indulge in a spot of wild swimming should the mood take you and the temperature permit. Along the way you’ll be passing plenty of interesting historic towns and villages with delicious foodstuffs to offer, which you can enjoy as you watch the stars above. If you’re holidaying in Ireland and want to get away from it all for a few days, there are few better ways to do it than this.
