The lake is calling and I must go…

We cater for corporate groups, hens/ stags and school trips with a range of skills sessions, kayak tours and entertaining paddling games.
Splash happy kayaking and canoeing at Blessington Lakes
Beautiful Blessington Lakes is located a convenient 20 minutes’ drive from Kippure Estate and it’s the perfect location to enjoy water-based activities, whatever your level of fitness and experience. The calm waters make it easy for beginners to get a feel for manoeuvring a kayak, while more advanced paddlers can take in the views as they explore the lake.
Paddling activities are a thrilling way to build team spirit, learn new skills and simply have fun, as well as create unforgettable memories to treasure for years to come. Our fully qualified instructors will teach you the basics of kayaking so you can get out on the water as quickly as possible or help you improve your technique if you’re more experienced.
Kayaking, canoeing, sit on top kayaks, sea kayaks, “war canoes” and raft building – if there’s water and a paddle involved, a great time is virtually guaranteed.
We’ll provide all the safety equipment and wetsuits – all you have to do is bring your swimming gear, towel and a pair of old shoes you don’t mind getting wet.
Raft building for corporate groups
We also offer raft building as part of a team building day. We’ll divide you into teams, where you’ll compete against each other to build and sail your very own raft. We’ll provide you with plenty of barrels, wood and rope. What you use is entirely up to you, with our instructors on hand to give you hints and tips on improving your design. Once you’ve completed your raft, you’ll float it out on the water – the first to make it round the race without sinking wins!
