    Here’s Why You May Like to Kayak in Ireland in August

    Possibly both Ireland’s warmest and busiest month of the year, August is also a great time to be on the water in Ireland. The days are long, summer is in full swing, and the sun is often out. The height of summer, August is also a great month to enrich yourself in local festivals, markets and other outdoor events. Traditional Irish music seeps out of pubs, and the Irish coastline twinkles in the sunlight. 

    Being peak season, there are more tourists out and about, but travelling by kayak means that you’re already off the beaten track! Going for a sea kayak in Ireland in August also means following the Wild Atlantic Way from a new perspective, as well as immersing yourself in Ireland’s rich history and legends

    Enjoy a lovely picnic among the emerald hills after a solid day of kayaking, and perhaps a coastal hike to visit castles, villages, and countryside lanes near the sea’s edge. At the end of the day, taste the freshest fruits of the sea from an oceanfront restaurant. Enjoy the general merriment that coincides with Irish summer days and nights along the Wild Atlantic Way!

    Our holidays reviewed
    in your own words

    This is one of the best trips we have ever taken. I am already recommending Wilderness Ireland to everyone that asks about our trip. We were very well supported from the guides taking care of us, the bikes, the food, the accommodations, the company we had during the trip. We absolutely would do it again. The scenery was unbelievable. Just beautiful! Just remember, stay to the left on the road!
