Overview
The right guide makes all the difference when it comes to kayaking—even on low-risk paddling trips like this one. Learn all about the history, geology, and native wildlife of the Lakes of Killarney from your local guide, as you paddle in a gentle loop on this small-group Killarney kayak tour. Wetsuits and buoyancy aids are included.
Highlights
  • Paddle the Lakes of Killarney’s placid waters with a local guide
  • Experience Killarney National Park and Ross Castle from the water
  • Gaze at spectacular scenery and learn local legends, history, and geology
  • Small-group tour suitable for first-timers and experts alike
What to Expect
Meet your guide and group at 15th-century Ross Castle, don your wetsuit and buoyancy aid, and learn the basics of paddling (if you don’t already know). Set off on the tranquil waters—conditions that are perfect for beginners—through Killarney National Park and the Lakes of Killarney. Look out for native wildlife and enjoy the panoramic views of the surrounding landscapes, as your guide explains how nature’s giant hand shaped this stunning terrain. Learn about Ross Castle’s turbulent history, as you admire the ruins from the water. By the end of the tour, even absolute beginners will be kayaking like veterans.
