Located at the well renowned Shore Front in Moville, Co Donegal, Just Kayak is breathing new life into a 1950s building that had become a dangerously derelict eyesore on the town’s shorefront. Just Kayak has taken on the building that once facilitated the diving boards and has turned it into a water and outdoor pursuits centre. 2012 has seen the great big renovation to bring the building in to the 21st century. The attractive building, with its curved and arc-shaped lines, was designed by the late Greencastle architect Liam McCormick.
