tuition you will be fitted with your equipment and receive instructions for the kayak tour.

The tour typically involves 6-10 km of kayaking on Blessington Lake with an informative guide who will improve your kayak technique as well as 
giving you the historical background to the Poulaphouca reservoir (Blessington Lake) which was only formed following the completion of the
