With its long tradition of paddling, Ireland is a must for sea kayaking enthusiasts. Imagine yourself paddling through choppy waves and feisty currents, with variable winds and ever-changing weather. Here, the sea blends in perfect harmony with the village atmosphere. Live Irish music is playing at the local pubs, and whiskey and black lager are served all around. The Irish coastline is studded with countless islands, some deserted, some abandoned, and some populated with seals, nesting birds and Puffins. Grasslands overlooking vast sandy shores are ideal for camping. Ireland is the perfect place to paddle beneath huge cliffs, play between pillars of rock, gateways and arches, and explore labyrinths and caves.
