Stand-Up Paddleboarding Rental in Cork - The Lagoon

Try something new

Enjoy the fun and get fit

Stand-Up Paddle Boarding (SUP)

If you’re looking for a way to enjoy the water, Stand Up Paddle Boarding is your answer.

SUP is a fun and easy way to get on the water and explore the lakes, rivers, and oceans around you. You can use it as a way to get fit, as well as improve your balance and coordination. It’s also a great way to spend time with friends and family!

Stand-up Paddle Boarding is one of the finest ways to get out and enjoy the water. The sport originated as a traditional Hawaiian custom that was reintroduced to the globe in the mid-60s and has since been the fastest growing board sport in the world, partly thanks to the fact that it’s very easy to learn!

We rent SUPs at Lagoon Activity Centre, so whether you’re looking for something fun to do with your kids or want to be able to spend some quality time with your spouse or significant other, we’ve got you covered. You’ll be able to enjoy the stunning scenery of West Cork from a whole new perspective on our paddle boards.

Our staff will help you find the perfect board for your needs, so don’t be afraid to ask questions!

It's Like Surfing but Without the Waves!

The Lagoon Activity Centre has a range of paddle boards available for hire. They are designed for beginner to intermediate paddlers and are suitable for adults and children alike (with an adult).

If you’ve never tried paddle boarding before, don’t worry! We’ll go through some basic instructions before getting out on the water. Our instructors will be on hand throughout your session to give you advice, help with technique, or just chat about how much fun it is!

Our paddle boards are extremely sturdy, making it easy for anybody, regardless of their level of expertise, to learn to paddleboard. We’re pleased to share any tips we’ve learned along the road with you, too.

You’ll get wet, even if you’re an experienced paddle boarder, so leave your valuables and devices behind in the car or with us at our front desk.

The water is only 3 feet deep (does not apply to waterpark) and there are lifejackets provided for everyone.

Great place for both adults and children, wetsuit available if you done bring your own, life jackets also, the lagoon is on about 3/4 foot deep so safe for all type of swimmers, water is salty (seems maybe dirty and stagnant to me but I'm no water expert). Big area for running around on and plenty of obstacles to tackle and then the slides

Great family day out. The centre is run very well. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We've done a few of these water activities and this one is by far out favourite. You take a short boat ride out to it which was very exciting for the kids also. Toilet facilities are very clean and plenty of hand sanitizer. The whole experience from start to finish was fantastic. We'll definitely be returning. Would highly recommend. Our kids are 13 and 11.

We went as a family (4 kids ages 16, 14, 6 and 4, and 2 adults) a day out to celebrate the 16th birthday! It's hard to impress the older lads, but they thoroughly enjoyed this! They went on the water park, we watched for a while before bringing the smallies out on a pedal boat.

I would likely recommend The Lagoon Activity Centre. The family really enjoyed the Total Wipeout style course. They were all smiley and tired afterwards. The coffee was good and the place is very well run and easy to navigate. It is a must see and do in West Cork!

Book early. Always a hoot. For all ages! I'm early 50s and go with the teenagers every summer. The new pyramid is a testing climb but worth it. I started with this and got the wetting out of the way early on! Could do with clearing out of the pond scum which accumulates in two

We had a great time at The Lagoon Waterpark. The five of us took part, kids from 8 to 15 and we had great fun. The only thing for us was that a couple of the inflatables could have had more air in them and showers stopped before we had a chance to use them when we finished,

Absolutely blown away by my experience at the Lagoon. Staff were exceptional and went above and beyond my expectations. The lads doing the lifejackets and wetsuits were so friendly and professional. The waterpark itself was great craic and all my group had a ball. The whole set

A win win for parents and teenagers … Having two teenagers who are reluctant to go on holidays with their parents is a challenge but we could not recommend the Lagoon Activity Centre more - 1st day did water park and we were back a second day to race parents in kayaks across the

Booked for family of 4 as part of our holiday in West Cork and Paul the manager was very accommodating when we had a problem with the time we booked. We had great fun on the inflatables…kids loved the slide and the hamster wheel! There are lovely warm showers after too. Staff were great. We had previously been as a few times and and we will definitely be back again…it doesn’t get old!

Fun facilities and a lovely relaxed atmosphere at the centre. Very friendly staff at the centre base. Aqua park was fun but very daunting. Be prepared for essentially a slippery bouncy castle. Those in charge of the Aquapark we very unhelpful, bordering on rude. Myself and others were the ones pulling the dingy closer to the inflatable to help people on and off while they looked on. No positive interaction, just looked constantly bored by our existence and us possibly being in need of a hand. Nothing to wipe the very many cuts I witnessed on the way back. Those on shore were very helpful. Please remember that it is all of our first time on a wobbly, slippery inflatable in deep water that most of us are only on to keep out children happy. Our old bodies ache. It costs nothing to give us a fake smile and a hand onto wobbly polyethylene. In fact, it would go a really long way. You catch more flies with honey then with vinegar. Still had a great time though!
