Had a fantastic trip with Larry as the skipper. Great scenery and even spotted a kingfisher! Very relaxing and we were even lucky with the weather. Love to come another time when we are back in Ireland.

We picked up a leaflet and just took a chance! What a fantastic time we had. We did the 3 day trip and found some amazing remote spots where we saw all sorts of wildlife and birds. First time on a barge and won't be our last. Larry was a great skipper and kept us amused ! Thanks so much.

Our yoga class hired Larry's barge for a day trip and had a fabulous experience. We found great locations along the river for yoga and meditation but we were pleasantly distracted by the amazing surroundings. We'd recommend this as a great day out and look forward to doing it again.
