What People Say About The Trip

Our favourite thing we did in all of Ireland

Me and my cousin (18yr/19yrs) did the sup tour in dingle last month and we’ve never had more fun in our entire life’s! Our guide Jason, went above and beyond for us! He is a great instructor, extremely knowledgable and fun! 
We even got right next fungi the dolphin!! (Sadly it won’t let me post the video we got) 
I’d never paddle boarded in my life and Jason helped me get it right off the bat!
I highly suggest this tour to everyone! 
We did all of the usual stuff like the Cliffs of Moher, Giants Causeway etc… but this was still the most beautiful/fun thing!!

Location

Kenmare Bay is located in the South West of Ireland on the stunning ‘Ring of Kerry’ and the Wild Atlantic Way, bordered by the Iveragh Peninsula on one side and the Beara Peninsula on the other. Kenmare Bay is a Special Area of Conservation and the area abounds with history, wildlife and the rugged terrain Ireland is so well known for. The surrounding area boasts castles, ring forts, stone circles, and a wide array of wildlife, including seals, dolphins, white-tailed sea eagles, and the potential otter! In September the area is known to have a beautiful showcase of bioluminescence.

The sheltered location offers perfect paddle conditions with plenty of inlets and islands to explore along the way. Ourequipment is specially selected to perfectly handle the rugged terrain and unpredictable weather of Ireland’s west coast. With the supplied board, paddle, leash, buoyancy aid and wetsuit, you will be warm, comfortable and paddling happily for the duration of the trip.

Ireland’s west coast is located directly on the Gulf Stream, bringing warm water up from the Caribbean. This keeps Ireland’s climate mild and temperate – never too hot and never too cold. In September the average air temperature ranges between 18° and 14°C (64° and 57°F) while sea temperatures at this time average 15°C (59°F). It’s a good time to visit the island as the crowds are fewer and the weather is still fair.

 

Accommodation

Bask in luxury accommodation after a good day’s paddle. Arrive at some of Ireland’s best hotels with a sense of accomplishment and elation. Sink into the soft beds and relax in a hot tub while overlooking the spectacular bay you just paddled through.

Nights will be spent at Parknasilla Hotel and ResortSheen Falls Lodge and the Sneem Hotel, among others. Each night will be spent in a different beautiful setting giving you a taste of why Irish hospitality is world famous.

We’ll arrange for your luggage to be moved to the next location each day giving you complete freedom out on the water.

 

Food

Food

Irish cuisine is all about quality ingredients. The focus lies on grass-fed meat and dairy, wild caught seafood, locally grown root vegetables, all in all, food the way it’s meant to taste. From casual pub dining to 5-star resort restaurants, prepare to be amazed by the culinary delights of Ireland.

We’ll be dining in local pubs, hotel restaurants and catered for by our own personal chef. Our lunches will be picnic fair sourced from local artisan food producers, eaten al fresco along the way. You’ll be well fed and watered every step of the journey, ready for the next adventure.

Something Different

The true locals are the heart and soul of Ireland. They have the stories, the history and the music to match. They are the ones who know the area like the back of their hand. Some of them love to share their insider knowledge and some just love the chat.

We have organised to meet a few of these amazing people and to introduce them to you along the way. On this adventure, you will meet the characters that bring extra colour to the Irish landscape. They will have you laughing, crying, and dancing, sometimes all at once. They will tell you the stories and sing you songs that no one else can. These are the people you would be hard-pressed to meet anywhere else.

These are the moments you will remember forever, the people who will make you smile years down the line.

 

Weather Warning

Due to the weather dependent nature of stand up paddle boarding there is a small chance that we will be unable to paddle on one or more of the scheduled days. In this scenario, never fear! We have some great alternative plans set in motion for just such an occasion. These include hiking to hidden waterfalls, extra nights in luxury hotels, visiting country pubs with local storytellers and musicians, and many more. We are ready for anything!
