The perfect holiday for paddlers exploring the real Ireland

Based in the heart of Ireland’s Ancient East, rowing club groups of 10, 15 or 20 people can negotiate ancient navigations and scenic gems. At night, stay in cosy rooms at our base right on the river bank in the medieval village of Graiguenamanagh, Co. Kilkenny. Relax and just arrive as all logistics will be sorted for you, all boats and top class equipment waiting for you, and a super warm Irish welcome from your hosts.


The Irish Rowing Adventure  began as an exciting collaboration between  rowing and tourism. All river based activities were coordinated by Graiguenamanagh Rowing Club, a vibrant and growing club established in 2001 in southeast Ireland. Accommodation and meals, as well as biking and onshore entertainment are perfectly managed on your behalf by the iconic Waterside Guesthouse in Graiguenamanagh. Brian Roberts, founder of Graiguenamanagh Rowing Club, is also the proprietor of Waterside Guesthouse.
