What Paddlers Are Saying

Very knowledgeable staff. Sized me up for a river kayak on the spot. Perfect fit. Also very supportive of Irish Sea Kayak Association, paddling clubs and organisations

Dave Conroy

Great select of paddling gear, kayaks and sup kit. Competitive prices, reasonable postage, and always solid advice.

John Looney

These guys put customer service first and foremost I cannot praise them enough. Little touches like including sweets or wipes with minor purchases makes you feel they really care. For all your paddle sport needs these are the people.

Liam Ryan

My son and his friend did a Summer camp at the Canoe Centre. They enjoyed a brilliant week with Instructors Dan and Susan. Great equipment and great gear provided. They are now hooked and will be back for lessons in the near future.

Patrick Nolan

An Aladdin's cave for canoeists and kayakers, premises right on the liffey, fantastic selection of items , very friendly staff , and knowledgeable, I paid full price for my kayak , however got 10% of everything else . Quality gear. Much better than buying online , you can try things on and get the personal treatment and the benefit of their knowledge and suggestions
Would highly recommend them 🛶🛶🛶👌👌👌

John Biker

Great shop, well stocked and run by helpful knowledgeable staff who definitely know what they are talking about. Good realistic advice offered to other customers while I was there too. Worth a visit if looking for kayaks etc, they have a lot more I stock than they could possibly list on their site.

    Earth Day 2020

    For us at the Canoe Centre and every day is earth day but today marks a very significant moment on the Earth Day timeline. It is most unlikely that when Earth Day was first celebrated in 1970 that it’s...
