What you'll do

We kayak along the coastline from Beach North towards the Lighthouse. We pass a Martello tower, one of many built along the coast of Ireland. These towers were built during the 19th century as coastal Forts. On this trip we see some of sea birds like cormorants, sea gulls and hopefully some seals. We kayak out to a point where we can see the Baily lighthouse.

We stop on a small beach area in the base of the cliffs for some refreshments. We do take some photos during the trip which we will upload to the event page after the trip.

Such a fun trip, going out kayaking in Howth. Alex was a great host, ensuring everyone was having a good time and safe. Everything was provided (wetsuits, shoes, kayak etc). The views around Howth are also beautiful. Would definitely recommend!

This was such a fabulous outing on a truly beautiful Dublin day. We had a large group and everyone had a great time paddling. The seas were calm--so beginners had no problem keeping up. Alex was a caring and fun guide who took good care of us and even provided water and snacks during the trip. He made sure to get individual and group photos of everyone and will post them for us to download later. Everything necessary was provided (including wetsuits, life jackets, and booties) and the scenery was stunning. I've paddled a lot at home in California and through towns in the Netherlands, Germany, and along the Thames in London, and this stood out from those places because we were out on the rolling Irish sea with gorgeous sea cliffs and sea caves along the way and no pollution. We also had many friendly and curious seals pop up all around us with kind, dog-like expressions on their faces. It was a memorable experience that I highly recommend for visitors to this beautiful Emerald Island.

Cool experience. It was nice to see a different part if Dublin. The area to kayak has nice views. We were lucky to see a seal too. Alex is a good guide. The 3 hours includes prep time/changing before and after. It was a nice evening
