With all the natural beauty around Athlone, the rolling landscapes and gentle waters, there’s no better place for a break that’s full of fresh air and activity. Jumping in a kayak and taking time on the water with friends and family is certainly one of the most enjoyable ways to do it. Cruise with ease along the banks for a whole new perspective on the town or explore the islands of the inner lakes to feel miles away from anywhere.
Then to dial the excitement up a notch, just head north. 30 mins from Athlone you can kayak the white waters of Lough Inny for ride that’s sure to thrill. Bring your own or at Hodson Bay, you can even hire them when you get here.
