River Blackwater Canoe – County Tyrone, Northern Ireland
A two night paddle camp experience
Join us for a peaceful trip along the waterways of Northern Ireland canoeing the River Blackwater, meandering between Tyrone and Armagh on its way to beautiful Lough Neagh.
Prior paddling experience is not necessary for this trip as full induction training will be given along with support and coaching along the way; however a little knowledge of canoeing in tandem is always helpful.
The trip begins early morning in Blackwater town with an induction and safety talk with the guide. Paddlers get some time to familiarise themselves with their craft and revive assistance from our team to pack gear and stow it efficiently. We provide waterproof barrels and dry bags to keep your essentials dry – any extra luggage that is not required can be transported to meet you at the end point.
We meander our way along the slow winding Blackwater, taking the beauty of the Northern Irish countryside, stopping for lunch and then passing the ancient Argory before arriving at our wild camp spot where we will set up camp, eat and enjoy the tranquility of nature.
The next day, after a hearty breakfast will take you on an enchanting journey into the bosom of Lough Neagh ending at Maghery Country Park. As the Lough can be testing in windy weather, we will on occasion offer trips out over open water to Coney Island to enjoy the lesser spotted history of the Anglo-Norman ruins on the island and the stunning archeology contained within.
On the return to Blackwater Town we will make a stop in Moy to visit the homely Tomneys Bar – You can’t get more Irish than this bar. Enjoy some craic and end a wonderful 2 days paddling with a well deserved pint.
