There is so much that can be said about that tour and how awesome Graham was. I’ll start with how easy it was to communicate with Graham prior to arriving in Ireland from the USA. I wasn’t sure how to travel from Dublin to Wexford but Graham emailed all information I needed and made the 2 hour trip to Wexford a breeze. Upon arrival we instantly felt comfortable and like we were traveling with a friend. His knowledge was the area was incredible and we talked everything from Irish folklore to Star Wars. Once on the water Graham’s professionalism and skills were easily evident. He communicated instructions easily and understood the water well. He knew when and where we could kayak and how to navigate if waters began to get rough. He also improvised a few fun things for us when the weather or tide prevented what was planned. The time and care that Graham took for us will be a highlight of our month in Europe I am sure. What I think most impressed me however was his passion. You could tell he loved his job and his county. Perfect day out! Thanks Graham.

You HAVE to tour with The Irish Experience!
Our kayaking tour with the Irish Experience was above and beyond our expectations! Wexford is beautiful on its own, so you are sure to get an eye full while out and about, but I am happy to say what made this tour extra special was Graham. He was very easy to communicate with before the tour, and he was very accommodating when it came to making sure we had everything we needed.
It really felt like we were spending a day out on the water with a friend. He is very knowledgeable of the area, being a local, and knew all the local stories and folklore.
Graham is an expert at what he does, not only through academics but also through his experiences. He gave clear instructions and was able to read the water to judge conditions. We felt very safe with him and we look forward to coming to visit him again!

What a wonderful experience we had on our kayak trip. Graham was a great storyteller. Each spot along the way he had insight into what we were seeing and explained the history of the area. If you are on the fence about taking the trip definitely do it. It is worth the drive and every euro.

What a fantastic morning. Having not paddled a kayak since in my early teens I was slightly apprehensive, but I needn’t have worried. It was an incredible experience and I plan on bringing the kids along at the next opportunity!

From start to finish this was a great trip. None of us had ever done any kayaking before so this was a real unknown. The instructor was brilliant. He made everyone(12 of us) feel comfortable. I was with my Daughter and two grandsons(on a visit from London). The instructor gave clear and easy instructions for a few mins before we got into the sheltered bay where we were coached through a series of manovers. We then set out around the head and into the sea swell (not too big) it was exhilarating and exciting. One of the most important points is that we felt safe all the time. So from a Granddad in his sixties I cannot speak highly enough of this experience and I will definitely do it again.
