About us

Errit Kayak Club in its current form has been established since July 2018. We are an adults only club allowing a safe place for adults of all ages to rediscover sport and gain confidence and skills on the water.

The club offers beginners’ courses with limited places during the spring and summer with training and certification in Level 2 Kayak Skills. On weekends throughout the year our members can be found paddling Irish waters near and far, enjoying the scenery and sense of peace that comes with a leisurely flat water paddle or being a little more adventurous on whitewater rivers and the sea! During the warmer months, you will also spot us “messing around in boats” in the evenings on our home water of Errit Lake and also our neighbouring lakes of Urlar and O’Flynn.

The club has a mix of touring / sea and GP kayaks and all ancillary equipment for members’ use. We also have three K1 kayaks for members who want to try their hand at racing!
