My family of 6 and our friends a family of 4 went on a boat trip with Cliff from Carlow along the river barrow. Cliff has a great personality and is a great storyteller. Really enjoyed the trip. The waterways manager Liam kindly left us through a lough. We saw lots of river wildlife. It was a very enjoyable experience and great for all the family. Would highly recommend this outing.
