As part of a short break to Clare we were lucky enough to go Kayaking with Mervin. We had a fantastic time- the weather was unreal and we experienced an amazing part of Ireland. A must for anyone interested in seeing this part of Ireland from the waterside.

Patrick met us at Lake Inchiquin, just the 2 of us. We were delighted. What a privilege. Patrick brought us on the Lake, up the river Fergus and to an ancient castle. Beautiful. He was able to tell us all about the history of the area and all about the flora and fauna etc. We would highly recommend North Clare... More

Met Patrick at the pier in Ballyvaughan had headed off for a wonderful few hours kayaking round the bay exploring. Patrick is very knowledgable about the local area and wild life and happy to impart his knowledge. Brilliant with kids of all ages. Couldn't recommend highly enough. Great day all round. Thanks Patrick.

Had a fantastic time with Patrick out on Ballyvaghan bay! He was very friendly and knowledgable about the surrounding area and nature. Educational, good exercise and we even saw some seals who were also very friendly.

I'd really recommend this even if you're not the outdoor adventure type. It's a relatively gentle way to explore a truly lovely part of the Irish coastline from the water. This part of Galway Bay is quite sheltered yet you do get to feel close to the seals and the seabirds. It's also great to see the Burren hills in... More

Our hotel (Wild Honey Inn - also a super place) recommended North Clare Sea Kayaking so we decided to give this a try. We all had a super time, myself, husband and two children (ages 10 & 12) are beginners although I was the only one who seemed a little nervous. I needn't have worried Patrick (owner and guide) was...

We did the Wild Burren tour in the morning with a little group and we liked it a lot! Everything was perfect; the equipment, the company and the guiding of Patrick.

Probably due to the bad weather, we were the only two on the tour. Which made a private tour :) Patrick was a great guide with interesting information about the environment and wildlife of the coastline. There were also 30-something seals that came to say hi !
