Phoenix Kayak Club is in existence for over 20 years.
Our Membership has continued to grow Year on Year.
We run Beginners Kayaking courses throughout the Summer months at our Club on the Lee Road
and continue to kayak throughout the winter months with official club trips every two weeks and
a number of members meeting up on a more regular basis to fulfill their paddling ambition.
We are always looking for new members so get in touch with us or maybe do a Beginners Kayaking course first.

We also have members who have represented Ireland in a number of different diciplines including Surf Kayaking as well as Freestyle Kayaking
As Kayaking is considered an extreme sport, we do our very best by minimising all risks by running River Safety and Rescue Courses. Safety is something that we take very seriously at Phoenix Kayak Club!
The most important thing for all members is to have fun! We take our sport very seriously but the most important thing is that we enjoy it! We compete in a number of different competitions through out the year, including the liffey decent and Canoeing Ireland Club Championships.
Not only do our members love teaching others how to kayak, we also support a number or charitable events throughout the year, We provide rescue support for the musgrave
triathalon as well as The Martin Duggan swim in fermoy and The Lee Swim.
We also run a number of social inclusion nights where we take out community groups from around the city out on the water for a bit of fun.
We are people who love our sport, and we come from different backgrounds and walks of life and welcome everyone to our club. Some of us have represented Ireland in our sport.
We are 100% volunterally run Club, We seek grants and funding to help run our club. There is a genre of kayaking for everyone,
from those who are very competitive to those who just want to have fun!
