What a way to spend a few hours on Kenmare Bay. Picked the perfect day. First time in a kayak for many of our party. Our guides Jamie and Eoghan were fantastic and made the day so relaxing.

A truly wonderful evening trip! The guys are great instructors, making everyone feel comfortable with the gear, no nonsense safety talk, with loads of humour. The venue ( templenoe pier) is stunning, sun setting over the islands as we paddled out, enough light to see the islands we went through, with great talks about the history as we went, bit of paddling, bit of chat, no one under pressure. When it was dark the bioluminescence was fantastic, what an amazing natural phenomenon!!! Sad to go back to the pier. I would highly recommend a trip with Emerald Outdoors, professional guides, and outstanding scenery

We went to Kenmare especially to try this out and it was just amazing. Hard to explain exactly why, but it just had that something special feel about it. Firstly, the kayaking alone was fun but at night, during sunset and floating around under the stars was extra. But the bioluminescence took our breath away, literally we gasped. The guide Frank was brilliant.
