Canoeing Ireland and Canoe Association of Northern Ireland will hold its second joint Paddlefest event in 2014.

Paddlefest 2014 will be run on the 21st and 22nd March 2014 from The Share Centre, Enniskillen, Fermanagh.  Please feel free to browse the webpages linked on your left to access event information.

Paddlefest 2014 will be a fun packed weekend of skills clinics, quality coaching, great trips, inspiring evening talks and of course a social each evening.

The Share Centre was chosen for Paddlefest as it is located on the shores of Lough Erne and is close to many options for sea, river and surf.

The programme has been developed to maximise the venue and the surrounding area. Whatever your ability or discipline there will be a number of choices for you.

There are a number of accommodation choices at the Share Centre which include rooms for 4 people, and chalets for 4,8 and 12 people with a private living area. If you have a preference on your accommodation type contact CANI after you have booked on. We can allocate blocks of accommodation if available to clubs / friends. There are also camping, caravan and motor-home pitches on site which can be booked through the Share Centre direct. If you choose not to stay on site there are many local choices but these will be more expensive so get in quick to secure your choice.

The main hub for the conference is the Share Centre.  This is where the sessions will start and finish, the food will be served.  It will also be the venue for the evening talks and the evening entertainment, so we recommend staying on site.

This will be a joint event with Canoeing Ireland. We are lucky to have top quality coaches from all over Ireland running the sessions and passing on their many years of top tips and handy hints.
