My 16 year old daughter and I booked a 3 hour trip for April. Kelly did a fantastic job of staying in touch via email to finalize the details in the days leading up to our trip. Really wanted to do the cliffs and caves tour but the conditions were not right, so Kelly recommended the Ballyvaughan trip. We saw... More

We were a family of 5,with my mother (60) in tow, and Patrick catered to us beautifully. Leaving from Ballyvaghan, the sun was out, the sea glassy and we poodled along via seals and seabirds to a castle to stop for snacks, and then returned. Patrick is friendly, knowledgeable and has all the best equipment. Great way to experience the... More

We, a group of 2 children age 9 and 12 and 2 adults kayaked with Patrick in July around ballyvaughan. It was fantastic and Patrick was very a very helpful and pleasant tutor and guide. I hope to do it again in a few weeks with some friends.

To experience this kayaking tour is rare because of the swells. However, when we were in IRELAND, we definitely lucked out! We had the most georgeous weather and we were able to go through about 3 or 4 different caves! It was amazing. My hands were a little sore after the 4 hour kayaking trip- but it was definitely worth... More

Great time, with a group ranging from mid twenties to late fifties. Hoped to do the sea caves tour originally but long range forecast wasn't favourable (requires high tide, no swell, little wind) so booked the tour of the burren instead. Conditions the day before and the day of (gale force winds and high seas) meant we had to change... More

Patrick and Kelly guided us on a wonderful family adventure. 2 Adults, 3 Kids aged 13 -6 and 2 guides. Not many places you would get this attention and care. Top class gear and safety equipment. A paddle around Ballyvaughan Bay to a nearby beach and some crab hunting. Highly recommended half day on the water.

I highly recommend sea kayaking with Patrick and Kelly. They were professional, interesting, and loads if fun. They are very responsive to your particular group as far as pace and interests. Kayaking was one of the highlights of our trip!

We took our 9 and 11 year old girls on the Burren trip and had a fantastic time. Patrick and Kelly are wonderful people, were patient with our sometimes plodding pace, and the scenery was amazing. The double kayaks for parent and kid worked out really well - very stable and easy to paddle. Seals, birds, jellyfish, castle ruins, the... More

Patrick and Kelly are great! The "into the wild burren" tour was so beautiful with amazing wildlife, seals and birds and tons of jellyfish! I would recommend North Clare Sea Kayaking to anyone visiting the area. So much fun
