Northwest Ireland is the best-kept secret of the Emerald Isle.

Pristine surfing beaches, quirky coastal towns, vast moors, historic castles and sweeping glens are what awaits in Counties Sligo and Donegal.

best kayaking tours in northwest ireland

Kayaking in the sky – or so it seems! Splash in Sligo’s estuary to make friends with seals in Knocknarea nountains’s shadow.

The region is perfect for kayaking, as the lake, river and sea are all closely interconnected. Kayak on Lough Gill to explore abandoned islands (perhaps even the Lake Isle of Innisfree, immortalised by W.B. Yeats). On the other side of the colourful streets of Sligo town, kayak among seals in the Ballisadare estuary. If you’re feeling braver, head out into the Atlantic to discover Ireland from a new perspective.

Loved everything about this trip - our delightful, accommodating, encouraging guides, the well-planned routes, the food, the wildflowers and waterfalls, the music (live in the van and in Dingle). We rode up Conor Pass! Can't wait to come back and ride in Ireland again.
