On The QT

Kayaking heaven with Outdoor Ireland

Pictures by Emma Lynch

OnTheQT had a great recommendation by two of our great followers. They spent a morning kayaking with Outdoors Ireland across the beautiful Kilarney Lakes. Not only did they explore the Killarney Lakes but they went off the beaten track and explored the hidden inlets and Islands all around. A great experience for just €50 for a half day kayak and exploration. Our followers started at the Ross Castle and paddled into Lough Lein while discovering wooden islands, limstone caves, history, white tailed sea eagles and ancient ruins of Innisfallen Abbey….all while improving their kayak skills with a great instructor.

This is what our followers, Emma and Will  thought of their trip:

” Amazing trip from Ross Castle out onto Loch Lein for a morning of kayaking with Outdoors Ireland. Fantastic weather and beautiful scenery. Lovely to visit  the islands, including Innishfallen and seeing the local wild deer. Excellent tour and instruction by Jason our guide”

Now Outdoor adventures offer so much in Killarney. One that we loved here at OnTheQT was the sunset kayaking trip they provide over Killarney National Park and Dingle. You can almost imagine the silence and sound of your paddle as you kayak in the calm waters, the rustling tress, sleeping swans and twilight turning into moonlight. Best thing is that you don’t even need any experience and it just costs €50. (Price: €50pp. Time: 6pm – 9pm)

Another trip they provide that caught our eyes is the full day trip! Why not test yourself and head on the water exploring for the day. A 20km kayak through the Killarney National Park(why not see it’s beauty from the water), across Lough Lein and down Laune River. Have a exhilarating day and do something a little different. (Price: €75pp. Time: 10am – 5pm)
Don’t worry, we are not leaving out our extreme adventurers in this post! How about paddling white water rivers? Are you the thrill seeking adventurer looking for a challenge…then check this out! Outdoor Ireland offers a two day kayaking course on the Kerry rivers. You will learn the techniques to paddle on fast flowing rivers, learn river rescues, defensive swimming and how to throw ropes. (Price: €150pp. Time: 10am – 5pm)

So whether your looking for just a little taste of kayaking, a little challenge with a day of kayaking or adventure seeking for the white water kayaking, the Outdoor adventures can give you that experience. Try something a little different, get out on the water in Killarney and enjoy the beauty in a unique, fun way!
