Come and share the experience of rowing a beautiful community-built traditional currach with a crew of 12 people of all ages and abilities.

We will take groups of 10 out on the water, leaving from the mooring dock by Governors Bridge for a half-hour row up to Stranmillis Weir and back, or downriver to Ormeau Bridge and back.

There will be 6 sessions available lasting 30 minutes. 10 spaces available in each. Sessions begin every 30 minutes. First at 16:00
