    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.

    It was an absolutely magnificent tour! I thoroughly enjoyed it. The scenery was astoundingly beautiful and the pace was perfect. The week was made even more special by the personalities of our two awesome guides. I would absolutely use your company again and I will recommended it to all my friends!!!
