Shannon SUP specialises in standup paddle boards tours for small groups in the Midlands and Shannon region. We are based in Co. Offaly but also cover Laois, Westmeath, Meath, Kildare and Longford.
We bring you out on the water in your normal clothes or wetsuit and buoyancy vest and after 5 minutes you will forget about your board and begin to experience what SUP allows you to do. We also provide wetsuits if preferred. Enjoy beautiful sights and wildlife while gliding through the water on your own two feet!
We usually open in April once the weather warms up. Take a look at what we offer below and contact us for enquires & bookings.
