We had 2 couples go out for a morning rowing session and it was a great experience. It was a breezy day, and yet the Naomhogs (rowing boats) glided through the water even for a couple of rookies. The guides were fabulous, we had 2...More

Our family went out for an hour first thing in the morning. The bay was empty, the instructor was patient with my poor steering, and the experience was memorable.

Karen was a great guide and rowing was such a fun and relaxing experience! The harbor is beautiful and the boat glides gently through it. It is not too challenging physically but you still feel like you have accomplished something :) Highly recommended!!
