My husband and I booked this tour before leaving US and were not disappointed! Communicating with Kelly was a breeze and we were met by Patrick, our guide, on time at the location specified. There were only 4 of us that day, including Patrick. Patrick did a great job leading us and giving us some history of the area. He... More

I went out with Patrick for an afternoon paddling the spectacular North "Burren" Clare coastline from Ballyvaughan to Gleninagh Quay, with a stop at Gleninagh castle. I really enjoyed our private visit to the castle as well as the magnificent scenery. Patrick was friendly and professional and had good gear available.

Born and reared in Liscannor, the daughter of a fisherman, I always adored the sea. I now live in landlocked Cavan (which in fairness to it is also very beautiful but in a very different way). I'm really fortunate in that I get to come home every summer and breathe in beautiful Atlantic sea air. This year I picked up... More

Amazing day with Patrick & Mervyn at the helm of kayaks, sort of speak, while a group of us toured the waters of Galway Bay and coastline. The water was like glass and we were fortunate to see the seals with their pups plus a school of dolphins that swam with us for a short way. Totally incredible. This was... More

On June 25, 2014 I led a group of four inexperienced kayakers nervously into Ballyvaughan to boldly risk the chilly waters of Galway Bay for the Wild Burren Adventure. We met Patrick who immediately put us at ease. Rather than wax poetic about my memorable experience easily worth the full five stars, I will boil down the review to encourage... More

Have been traveling across Ireland for two months, so I have seen and done most of what there is to see/do in Ireland and Northern Ireland. Came across a pamphlet for North Clare Sea Kayaking--Sea Cave Tours. Decided to give it a shot. I was blown away by the experience. Best thing I have done since I have been here;... More

This time it was the Cliffs and Cave tour starting in Liscannor and heading in dircetion to the cliffs of Moher. Patrick brought all needed equipment, was an excellent guide and explained all the interesting details we saw ( Cave formations, birds, plants)... More

Hi, I went about 2 years ago on the Cliffs Tour. Great tour. Patrick, the guide, was real nice and full of lots of little anecdotes and knowledge of the wildlife. Liked it so much, I decided to bring my mates on the tour two weeks ago. This was absolutely brilliant again.

We just came back from our half day kajaking trip with Patrick. His instructions were clear and helpful so that we didn't have any problems although we were beginners. During the trip we saw a lot of different birds and seals. Our conclusion: Patrick is a funny guy who knows a lot of tipps and tricks to get around on... More

My family and I just got back from our first trip to Ireland and I must say, the Sky to Sea Cycling/Kayaking Adventure Combo tour with North Clare Sea Kayaking was definitely a highlight! If you're an active adventure seeker looking to experience the Burren, look no further than these folks. Our guides were absolutely fantastic. They, along with the... More
