The scenic Maamturks and 12 Bens mountain ranges of Connemara will be your stunning backdrop on this coastal kayaking adventure. Come witness a variety of sea life that includes seals and a range of shellfish such as limpids, clams, mussels and scallops.

The more experienced kayakers have the option to continue across Great Man’s bay with the guide to the ruins of both an old church and priest’s residence, which during the old days, the priest would make the journey by boat to say mass and then continue on horseback to Lettermullen village 5 miles away to say mass there, before taking the return journey home.

During late spring and into the summer this picturesque coastline is covered with wild flowers and the yellow Gorse is a beautiful sight with its bright yellow flowers and fragrant coconut smell. After exploring this unique Wild Atlantic Way coastline, kayak your way back with your guide to the star point to finish off your wonderful adventure,
