Kayaking in Galway Bay was a highlight of my time in Ireland. The guides were friendly, knowledgeable and well-prepared - though the latter hardly needed, as the unusually calm, fair weather made for a smooth but pleastantly challenging paddle in the spring tides. Though unforeseen circumstances necessitated an adjustment to our planned meeting point, Kelly and Patrick happily accommodated my... More

We had a group of 5 with varying levels of fitness. The biking portion brings you to spectacular views of the Burren and coast, but you work for them. There are some steeper hills right from the start, but they turned into gentle rolling hills partway through the climb. The downhill was our toughest part with several of us walking... More

We had a fantastic kayak tour in Ballyvaughan. Our guide, Shea, was fun and knowledgeable about Ireland, the waters, the vegetarian and the animals in the area. The water was rough but the challenge was fun. Thanks for a great afternoon Shea and Patrick!

We did the 3 hour kayaking tour of the Burren. Everything about the experience was 5 star. The magical scenery, the wonderful mountains, the beauty of Ballyvaughan bay, the nature and wildlife (visits by Seals! ), and the views of the Connemara Coastline were all magnificent! To top all this off the tour guides Patrick and Shay are masters of... More

My mother and I did the sea kayaking in Ballyvaughan. The guides were fantastic - very helpful and knowledgeable about the area, country, and wildlife. They are clearly passionate about what they do and we learnt a lot from what they had to say. As for the kayaking, we saw everything from seals (there are SO MANY, just being amongst... More

Our first official tour in Ireland was a kayaking trip to and from, along with a small hike on Mutton Island near Quilty in County Clare. Patrick and Sé were fabulous guides and provided us with instructions, historic information, fun facts about the island, the area and Ireland in general. My friend, who booked the tour on our behalf, also... More

We originally signed up to take the Cliffs of Moher paddle, but the weather and swells were pretty bad so we did the Wild Burren tour instead. I loved that it was a small intimate group and our guides Patrick and Shay were so friendly and knowledgeable. It was a great day on the water and we saw dozens of... More
