Intermediate Courses/River Trips

A professionally guided and instructed river trip of the River Liffey for those interested in learning how to paddle rivers and those training for the L3 skills award and those who have successfully completed our Weekend Beginner Course.

The trips run on selected Saturdays from 10am – 2pm (ish).

You can click the River Tab on our booking page and scroll down to find the latest river trip dates.

Our experienced and friendly instructors will introduce you to river kayaking and help you build and polish any existing skills.

The emphasis is first and foremost on enjoyment as well as building skills, improving confidence and working on river safety and awareness.

The river trips will run on the very scenic River Liffey through Dublin’s famous Strawberry beds, taking in some wonderful scenery and wildlife along the way (as well as some weirs!).

Kayaking.ie can provide gear and equipment for you if necessary.

Note: You must have a minimum standard of level 2 to join these trips. If you do not yet hold the level 2 skills award then we advise you to join our weekend beginner course first.
