Lough Erne Island Experience

Join us for a unique Lough Erne experience, where exploring the lough is paired with delicious local food!

What is the Lough Erne Island Experience?

The Lough Erne Island Experience is an exciting opportunity for individuals and groups to explore the beautiful county Fermanagh, and in particular Lough Erne.

The Lough Erne Island combines a paddling activity, either kayaking or stand up paddle boarding, with a delicious three course tasting menu, allowing you to be enveloped in the rich culture that Lough Erne has to offer. The experience lasts approximately four hours, and you will start with your paddling activity, exploring local islands on Lough Erne, and finish with an alfresco meal served on the lough shore.

How long is the experience?

Guests should arrive at 12pm on the date of their experience, where you will be introduced to our team members. The group will set off on a water trail taking around 1-2 hours.

When you arrive back to our base, we will provide you with a ‘warmer’ while you change and get ready to enjoy a local tasting menu. The dining experience will last around 2 hours, with a departure time of around 4pm.


What do I need to bring? 

Most importantly, you need to bring your good self! However you also need to bring warm clothing and your swimming costume. We also ask you to bring old shoes that you can wear in the water. These need to be secure on your feet so the likes of flip flops or sliders are unacceptable.  


What skill level do I need to have? 

Kayak Tours

Our kayak tours use tandem sit on top kayaks with seats, which means anyone can take part! You don’t need to have paddled before as our instructors will teach you everything you need to know to have you paddling along nicely. You also don’t need to be able to swim, as it is unlikely you will capsize. 

SUP Tours

Kayaking’s little brother Stand Up Paddleboarding is slightly more tricky, but again anyone can take part. However with Stand Up Paddleboarding you do need to be water confident, as it is much more likely that you might fall in. 

Unsure which paddling discipline is for you? No problem, drop us an email to ask! 

Really like the sound of a tour but not the paddling discipline? No problem, drop us an email to enquire about changing over to a different discipline. 


I have dietary requirements.

No problem! We ask that you inform us of all dietary requirements 1 week before. The menu is a prepared tasting menu and while we can try and accommodate on the day, we cannot guarantee this without advance notice.


Where is the experience?

Experience locations are detailed in the booking information, and we have some locations yet to be confirmed. If you have a query about a location, please don’t hesitate to ask. An exact location and directions will be sent to you once your booking is confirmed.
